Class teacher: Mrs Sida

Supported by Mrs Highton

We hope you enjoy reading our page, where we will be sharing what we are learning with you.

Welcome back to term 3! I hope you had a fantastic Christmas and you are looking forward to a busy and exciting term in team Kestrels. If you have any questions please contact me at rsida@wsses.org and I will respond as quickly as I can.

PE will continue to be Tuesday and Friday this term although swimming has now finished so you need to come to school in your PE kit on both days.  

Home learning 

If you are learning from home this week because you are self-isolating and cannot be in school, please use the weekly activity sheet attached below to access the lessons that you would be doing in class. Please remember that if you are actually feeling ill the most important thing is to get better - you do not need to complete school work if you are unwell.

For the first day that you are at home, you can play maths games and read your reading book.  After day 1 there will be daily maths and English work for you if you need it. Please email me at rsida@wsses.org if you are feeling well and would like work to be sent home.

You can submit work that you have completed via Seesaw or bring it into school when you return.
