Here are some things you might like to know about our class and the things we get up to!
Kestrel Class is home to year 5 and 6 (ages 9-11), and at the moment there are 23 of us.
The Kestrel adults are: Mrs Morris (Teacher Mon – Wed), Mr Masters (Teacher Thurs – Fri), Mrs L Dinnis and Mrs S Drake (Teaching Assistants).
We enjoy being within our spacious, vibrant room that is equipped to make the most of our time in years 5 and 6. It benefits from: a designated reading area containing a wealth of good books to borrow and enjoy, direct access out onto the playground, a raft of resources and displays to aid learning and is regularly filled with good humour, lively chatter and healthy debate.
As the older children in the school, we are encouraged be independent learners and individuals. To help with this, we are given the opportunity to take on responsibilities within the wider school community. Our class contains The Foodies. These are 10 pupils who work on a rota basis to facilitate the tuck shop every break time. We also have the House Points Monitors, PE Shed Monitors, School Council representatives and every member of Kestrel has a designated reading buddy in Fox Class who they partner with to develop a love of reading and books.
Due to being a friendly bunch, we welcome visitors and guests. This year, several parents, friends and family members have joined us for three open mornings to see what we get up to during maths and English lessons. Additionally, family and friends have watched our class assembly and two honoured guests joined us for our VE Day celebrations at the end of our WW2 topic.
To find out more about life in Kestrel Class come along to the next open morning on Wednesday 12th February, 2020 or speak to one of us.
Together we inspire, together we nurture, together we achieve.
