Celtic Harmony Trip Tomorrow..

Posted on February 26th, 2017 by Kestrel Class

Unfortunately the weather isn’t with us for our trip tomorrow!

Please could the children bring a spare change of clothes and shoes  in a carrier bag that they can change into for our journey home.

Fingers crossed that the forecast is wrong and the sun starts to shine!

Celtic Harmony Trip

Posted on February 24th, 2017 by Kestrel Class

Please remember it is our Celtic Harmony Trip

on Monday!!!

We are leaving school at 9am and will be returning at around 3:30pm depending on the traffic.

This trip is outside ALL day so please make sure the children are wearing sensible, waterproof and warm clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty! Wellies or waterproof shoes would be best as it will probably be muddy!

Normal school rules apply for packed lunches- no fizzy drinks and healthy snacks. Please make sure the children have at least 2 drinks.

We will be taking part in a trading activity so the children can bring some money up to £5 which they can spend in the shop.

It will be a fantastic day and I hope the children learn lots from the trip!

Have a fab weekend! Miss LH 🙂

I want to say a huge well done on your efforts for the Stone Age dwellings. They were all fantastic and the variety was excellent!

If I lived in the Stone Age I would certainly have enjoyed living in them!

Here are a few of dwellings:

Kestrel Home Learning W6

Posted on February 22nd, 2017 by Kestrel Class

Good Afternoon and welcome back after half term!

I hope everyone had a good rest and are now ready for the rest of term.

The home learning for this week is:

Spellings- Please learn the spellings and put these words into a sentence.

Maths– Fill in the table to sort the shapes by their properties. Use a ruler and a right angle tester (a circle folded into quarters) to complete Challenge 2 and compare the shapes.

English– In English we are going to be writing riddles. I would like the children to read/ listen to some writing that includes word play. This could be riddles, nonsense rhymes or jokes.  I would like the children to have/ know 1 example of word play e.g. can tell or a joke, has a copy of a rhyme.

TALENT CONTEST- This year for Red Nose Day we are hosting a talent contest. We will be holding Kestrel’s auditions on Friday 10th March. 2 children will then be selected to enter into the final competition. The talent can be anything from dancing, singing, sport skills to telling a joke! If the children require props/ music they will need to bring them in on this day. We really look forward to seeing the entries!


  • Water bottles need to be in school every day please.
  • On Friday at 2:45pm come along and visit our Garden of Dreams. We have been busy designing different decorations and making our own flowers of our dreams.
  • Next Monday (27th) is our class trip. Please make sure the children have appropriate clothing as we are outside all day. We are leaving at 9am and will be back approx. 3:30pm.
  • Thursday 2nd March is our Dress Up for World Book Day. Come in your best and most creative costumes!

Have a great week!

World Book Day 2017

Posted on February 20th, 2017 by Robin Class

This year World Book Day is on Thursday 2nd March to celebrate reading books, authors and illustrators. It is held in more than 100 countries around the world. A key aim is to give every child in the UK a book of their own to keep. Every child is eligible to receive a £1 World Book Day Token which can be exchanged for one of ten exclusive £1 World Book Day Books, or if you prefer, use it to get £1 off any full-priced book or audio book. Tokens must be redeemed by the end of March 2016.

We will be celebrating this great event on Thursday, 2nd March, by asking children to come dressed as their favourite book character. There will be prizes for the most original costume in each class and every child will receive their £1 World Book Token.

If you would like to find out more information about World Book Day, there are ideas, activities and resources at: http://worldbookday.com/
