Welcome to Kestrel Class!

Kestrel Welcome Letter 2020



Kestrel class will have PE on Mondays.  Please make sure your child has their kit available in school all week.


Forest School:

The children will have forest school on Tuesday afternoons.

They will go out whatever the weather so please can you ensure your child has a change of clothes every week with: a suitable coat, wellies or waterproof shoes and a long sleeved top and trousers.

There is a strong possibility the children will get dirty so don’t send them in anything nice! It is really important they have suitable clothing to ensure they can enjoy the experience.



I have uploaded the year’s spelling lists to EdShed.  These should update automatically each week with the new list.  Children should complete at list four spelling games online a week as well as completing other spelling activities.  Please email me if you require your child’s login and password.  The spelling overview is also stuck inside your child’s homework book for reference.
