Autumn Term One…                                             Value: Hope


It brings me great joy to welcome you to Kestrels; the next stage of your child’s learning journey.


As a team, we are really looking forward to welcoming everyone back into school, getting to know your children and watching them grow into incredible young people.  Soon, our classroom will be full of love, laughter and learning!


Before arriving on Friday, watch this short video and enjoy a sneaky look at our new classroom – the place where our adventures take place.


This section of our website will be used to provide a summary of Year Two's learning journey. It will also be used to share information and post regular updates.


I understand that starting a new year can be a daunting experience but the door to our classroom is always open…’alone we can do so little; together we can do so much!’


I’m very much looking forward to working with you all!

Author of the Year - Alex T. Smith!


Alex T. Smith is author and illustrator of children’s books. In each book his inspiring characters embark on various wacky but relatable adventures. His Claude range, which will be our primary focus, introduce children to early chapter books in a friendly and non-threatening way. Alex’s use of vocabulary is highly effective and repetitive – allowing early readers to be challenged, broadening their bank of vocabulary.  As an author and illustrator, Alex’s illustrations bring his stories to life, allowing readers to make predictions and actively engage within the text.


We love his short stories and find them highly entertaining – we hope you do too!

What a BRILLIANT first day! 


It has been wonderful welcoming everyone back today - they've been stars! I have thoroughly enjoyed watching their imaginations unfold and I'm already looking forward to next week's adventures. 


Here are some highlight pictures from today. Hopefully these will act as conversation starters. I know that after a long and tiring day it is often hard to reflect on what has been achieved. I hope everyone enjoys sharing their first day memories.
