Welcome to Kestrels!laugh


Hello and welcome to the Kestrels' page! We are a Year 3 class containing 26 children. Mrs Young is our class teacher and Miss Calton 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-  We will be introducing ClassDojo to the school this year. This will be used to promote the 6 Rs – being ready, responsible, resilient, reflective, resourceful and respectful. Our focus in Term 2 is on being respectful.

We will continue on our learning journey with Barry but his focus will be on promoting emotional well being – be on the lookout for his tweets giving us tips on how keep healthy
