Welcome to Kestrels!



Teacher – Mrs Tedaldi-Chestnutt (Monday-Thursday)/ Mr Powell (Friday)

TA – Mrs Giles (Mornings)

TA – Mrs Harvey (Monday – Wednesday Mornings)


In Kestrels class we encourage independence, creativity and confidence. Our aim is to inspire children to be the best they can be whilst learning and having fun. Please feel free to come and speak to us if you have any questions or queries.  


Key Information:



  • Homework in Kestrels is to play Times Table Rockstar.  Each child will have their own log on for the game and should play it at least five games a week (but the more the better!).  This is checked every Tuesday evening. 
  • We also have Read Theory where children will have their own login to complete 5 sections a week. These are really great as the system adapts to your child's responses and challenges them as they read. 


If your child hasn't completed their 5 games and 5 Reading sections we will give them some time in school to catch up without missing any playtime as playtime is important time! 


Physical Education:

  • Every Thursday and Friday your child will have PE.
  • They will need: shorts or joggers, daps or trainers and a T Shirt.
  • In terms 3 and 4 on a Wednesday your child will walk to swimming.
  • They will need: costume, towel, goggles, snack and a coat if the weather is poor.


To see more about the Kestrels class, take a look at the Kestrels blog page which is updated with information about the children's learning regularly.
