Merley First School

Kestrel Class

Teacher - Mrs Wheeler

Teaching Assistant - Mrs Honeybun


Good morning Kestrels, 

I have been in school with a few children over the last couple of days helping them with their learning tasks and doing some different art projects. How are you doing? I have had an email update with some photos and information from a kestrel which has been lovely to see what they have been up to. 

One of the art activities I did with the children in school was a funky Easter rabbit, I have attached my picture and maybe you would like to create your own Easter rabbit or chick using different patterns. I have stuck mine on my fridge but I intend to put it in my window over Easter weekend with a Happy Easter message :)

Hope to hear from you soon, 

Mrs Wheeler


Hello Kestrels! 

I just thought I would check in and let you know about Numbots! We didn't get the chance to talk about it in class however it is a fantastic online maths resource that you can access through Times table Rock stars. You can also download the app directly to your device and the sign in details are exactly the same as your TTRS login. 

I have seen some of you have found it already and had a go so well done! Numbots is very similar to TTRS however, you have your own robot that you create and earn money to make it better by completing a number of challenges. TTRS focuses on your times tables and division, whereas Numbots focuses on your addition and subtraction. Give it a go! It's FAB!

Keep working hard and being excellent Merley Learners! 

Mrs Wheeler


Good afternoon Kestrels!

The answer to the riddle got deleted when we changed the website but it was stairs!

I am sure you are working very hard and making the most of the GORGEOUS weather. Share this joke with your family :)

What do sheep do on sunny days? – Have a baa-baa-cue

Keep smiling,

Mrs Wheeler 


Hi Kestrels!

I hope you are enjoying your learning and the beautiful sunshine!

We love a riddle so here is one for you and your family..."What goes up and down but does not move?"
