Welcome to the Kestrel Class. On this page you will find curriculum information for this half term including details of our learning each week and general information about our class. The teacher in Kestrel class is Mrs Anthony and the teaching assistants are Mrs DeNooijer and Mrs Brendling.
At Hillshott Infant School and Nursery we follow the Penpals handwriting scheme. Our younger children are introduced to four main characters which help them to memorise the sequence for writing each letter correctly. The key thing to remember is that all letters start from the top apart - from d and e.
Pattern practice and play writing are an important part of handwriting development. Your child will be practising letter formation in a number of exciting ways: in sand, using paint, in the air, on the interactive screens and I pads, as well as on paper using a pencil!
Please can you make sure your child has an outdoor PE kit in school. All of our rugby sessions will be taking place outside.
