Welcome to Kestrels!
Hello and welcome to the Kestrels' page! We are a Year 3 class containing 30 children. Mrs Young is our class teacher and Mrs Barker is our TA.
This year we will be continuing to tweet so don't forget you can follow us on Twitter. Our twitter name is @kestrelsketton. Send a follow request and you can keep up to date with what we are doing in the classroom as it happens!
Homework will be given out on a Friday and it will be based on topics we have covered during the last week. We each have a homework book to complete our homework in. Part of our homework is also to learn spellings which are based on the spelling pattern or spelling rule we have been focusing on during the previous week. We will also have a set of tricky words to practise.
In Kestrels we need to read our reading books at home every night. It is up to us to remember to ask to change our reading books when we finish them. We have guided reading sessions each week. These sessions provide an opportunity to develop our reading comprehension skills.
Epic Learning- Barry's Fishatron 3,000 vehicle is ready for him to travel around our world . We will collect fuel pods for him through our work on the 6 Rs- being ready, resilient, responsible, resourceful, reflective and respectful. Our focus for Term 1 is "Ready".
We are starting with a local Geography study of Rutland Water using photographs, maps and of course a visit to the reservoir. We will learn about the water cycle, history and wildlife of Rutland Water. In Literacy we will read an autobiographical blog and write our own autobiography. In Science we will look at nutrition, bones and healthy eating.
