Kestrel Class

Welcome to Kestrel Class

We have lots of fun learning through play in both our EYFS indoor and outdoor environments.

Everyday we have a mixture of adult led and child initiated activities, which have all been provided to allow the children to extend their individual learning.

We are currently very busy getting to know our new classroom. We are going to be finding out about Ourselves and will be thinking about who is in our family, how our bodies work, our senses and where we live. We will soon be working on the story of the Bear Hunt and will be  retelling the story, creating story maps, roleplaying in the outdoor areas and also making lots of bear crafts.

Some of the areas we really love exploring in our classroom are;

The blocks, where we make amazing structures, investigate shapes, measures and balance.
Our role play area, where we can take on all sorts of different roles, using our imagination.
Our craft area, where we can build, paint, create, and make all sorts of exciting creations,developing our individual ideas. 
Our writing area - we love developing our mark making skills through making books, drawing, sending letters, writing lists, making cards... all using our emerging skills.
Our maths area, where we can explore number challenges, develop counting skills and investigate measures and shapes.
We also love spending time in our outdoor area, riding bikes, creating structures, playing with sand and water, developing mark making skills and role play - to name but a few activities.
We are always very busy, 'building a firm foundation'
