Summer 1 admin.

See below the usual documents for this half term. We look a little different this half term because of the short first week, the early May bank holiday and, of course, SATs week for our year 6s in w/c 9th May 2022. Mr Greavner, Mrs Michael and I will all try to keep our systems, structures and routines as consistent as we can during what is always a very busy half term for Kestrels.

Spring 1 admin.

Happy New Year!

 

I hope that you all had a fantastic break, staying safe and well, and enjoying time with family and friends.  While there remains lots of uncertainty in the world, we are carrying on as normally as we can in Kestrels and attached below are the timetable, medium-term planning  and knowledge organisers for this half term.

 

Please note that Forest School and PE are both on Tuesdays this half term, with the year groups alternating. As previously, please send your child(ren) in the appropriate kit for the day. PE will be indoors and forest school will be in all weathers, so please ensure that your child(ren) is/are togged up in warm and dry clothing. Spare shoes are a must so that muddy boots can be left at the door and spare clothes (uniform) are recommended as a backup for the afternoons in the event any inner layers get wet or muddy.

 

The office will confirm which year group is starting in the forest once we are back up and running. If you have any questions in the meantime, do get in touch via the office or on kestrels@worstead.norfolk.sch.uk.

Autumn 2 admin.

Hello and welcome to the second half of the Autumn term in Kestrels. After all of the changes in rules and routines from term to term in recent years, it will be nice for the children to have the continuity of things being largely unchanged for this half term.

 

The class timetable and medium term plan are both attached below. I'm delighted that we are able to get off-site to do our learning again this half term with a science day at North Walsham High School, a trip to the Time & Tide Museum in Great Yarmouth and the opportunity to grace the stage at the village hall in the build up to Christmas. The children are also swimming this half term on Wednesday afternoons. However confident and competent your child is in the pool, it is a part of the national curriculum that this has to be taught to children in key stage 2 so please ensure that your child has their swimming kit with them on a Wednesday.

 

As ever, should you have any questions, do not hesitate to speak to me, Mrs Michael or Mr Greavner.

 

Mr B

Welcome to Kestrels 2021-22!

A big welcome to the new year in Kestrels. Mrs Michael, Mr Greavner and I are looking forward to a fantastic year - we are hoping to restore lots of the 'normality' of school life this year and hoping to get a full year in!

 

Attached below are:

 

- Long term plan

- Medium term plan for Autumn 1

- Timetable

- Knowledge organisers for Science and Humanities - these contain the key learning for these subjects for the coming half term at least

 

A few things to note:

 

- Mrs Michael is teaching Kestrels on Tuesdays. Mr Greavner is with Kestrels all week.

- Please for this half term is on Wednesday afternoons. Please send the children IN THEIR KIT and make sure they are prepared for cold or wet weather

- Please name ALL your children's belongings - they might be older but they do still lose things!

- There is no homework menu but there are suggested activities on the knowledge organisers and we also ask that your children read daily, practice their handwriting and spelling each week in their purple books and practice their times tables. I also hope to trial a new way of issuing and submitting specific homework tasks, using email and/or Google Classroom. I will publish more details when it is ready to go.

 

For those with children in year 6, please note that SATs are currently scheduled to take place in the week commencing Monday 9th May 2022. I will issue more information about that week nearer the time but please do not book any holiday for that week or in its build up.

 

As always, do not hesitate to see me or Mrs Michael with any questions or concerns particular to your child or to Kestrels or email kestrels@worstead.norfolk.sch.uk. 

 

Mr Boast
