Classes >> Kestrel Class
Hello and welcome to Kestrel Class! I am Mr. Wilkins the class teacher. Our teaching assistant this year is the lovely Mrs Hearn.
In Kestrel Class I encourage all children to take a responsible and independent attitude to their learning, while consistently representing the school’s values and being role models for the school. I believe the key to learning is enjoyment, so if you are in my class you will be working very hard, however we will be having lots of fun along the way!
We have an exciting year planned in Year 5 with lots of engaging, cross-curricular topics. The first of these is titled ‘Astronomical’; a brilliant science topic involving research into space exploration, our solar system and beyond. After half term we will be studying Tudor life in ‘The Terrible Tudors’, then after Christmas we will learn all about Ancient Greece in our Spring topic: ‘Groovy Greeks’. Finally, ‘London Calling’ is our Summer term topic where we learn all about the history and geography of our capital city, as well as the UK. This also includes a trip to London!
I am really looking forward to a fun, exciting year of learning together.
