Hi everyone,

On this page you will find key information that you might need.  Kestrels homework will be set on a Friday and needs to be submitted by the following Thursday.  All the children have been given their login details for EdShed, TTRS and IDL and are in their reading records.   As well as daily reading at home please can you encourage your child to complete a TTRS and IDL session too!



Children will be given a set of spellings to learn each week based on different spelling patterns.  Please help your child to learn their spellings each week.


Snack & Water

Children are able to bring in their own snack for playtime.  This can be a cereal/breakfast bar (please no sugary cereal bars), fruit or veg.  We would really like to encourage children to bring in their own water bottles each day.  This ensures that they are able to have a drink regularly throughout the day.  Please ensure the bottle is clearly labelled with your child's name.


Please ensure you are checking in on class dojo daily to see what the children have been up to.  We will be using this platform to communicate everything that is happening in school, the newsletter, important dates.

If you need to contact us, please message on dojo in the first instance.



Mrs Hogg and Mrs Danyadi - Elliott
