Welcome to Kestrels

Mr Sinclair

Kestrels class, well where do we start...we don't always find it easy but we will give it a go.

As a class, we are kind-hearted, sensible and enthusiastic, with a real love of learning.  Our determination is always on show and we always try hard and want to improve. While doing this we help each other and show great team work. We are responsible, mature and respectful to others.

We love a chat and can make friends with anyone.
