Kestrel Class (Year 5 and Year 6)
Welcome to Kestrel Class 2019-20
Ms Morton: Class Teacher
Mrs Penn: Teaching Assistant
Mr Matthews: Teaching Assistant
Morning Routine: Children in Kestrel Class are confident about being independent. Parents say goodbye to their child at the bottom of the ramp then children come in and organise their coats and bags before getting on with early work, ready for the register at 9.00am.
Illness: If your child is ill it is important that you phone the school office as soon as possible on the first morning of their absence. Please let us know the symptoms of your child's illness so we can see a pattern if other children have similar symptoms.
To help your child to get the most out of school and avoid spreading infection to other children, please do not send them back to school until they have been well for 24 hours. If your child has vomited or had diarrhoea they must stay away from school until 48 hours after the last bout of illness.
PE Days: PE lessons are on Wednesdays and Fridays. All children need their PE kit in school during term time and will bring them home for washing during holidays. Each child must have a pair of shorts and t-shirt for gymnastics. They also need a sweatshirt and trainers for games when the weather is colder.
Classroom Volunteers: Extra help in the classroom is always appreciated, whether it is a regular commitment or occasional help when you are able to. From time to time we also need help on trips or with special activities in school. If you are interested in volunteering to help please speak with Ms Morton. All volunteers in our school must complete a Disclosure and Barring Scheme (DBS) check.
End of the Day: If someone other than you is going to collect your child from school, please let us know. You can do this either in person, by phoning the office or by writing a note. If someone other than you will regularly be collecting your child from school it is helpful if you let us know in writing so we can keep a note of the arrangement.
