Welcome to Kestrel Class!

We have the year 5 and 6 children in our lovely spacious classroom.  Our teacher is Mrs Scaplehorn.

Our children are inspired in Y5/6 to confidently take more responsibility for themselves and for helping younger children. Our oldest children are the role models for the rest of the school through the way they work and play and care for each other demonstrating our core values of friendship and respect.

Every child has been given a reading record and will be expected to log each time they read, whether at home or in school.  Children who read four or more times a week will receive a house point.  I will check reading records every Friday and will pick a ‘Reader of the Week’.

Forest School:

Kestrels will have Forest School this term on Thursday afternoons.  Please ensure that your child brings appropriate clothing to change into for the session.  They will need old clothes, trainers or wellies and waterproofs, as they will go outside whatever the weather.   If it is hot, they will also need a hat,  sun screen (which they will need to apply independently) and a water bottle.



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