Kestrel - Year 5

Welcome to Kestrel class. This year, Ms Bowie and Mrs Denny will be working alongside learners. We will journey into space (!), travel back in time to discover Britain’s prehistoric peoples and across the globe to Asia.

In the class we value creativity, questioning and finding out. We value the use of thinking skills while helping learners develop the self- management skills and enthusiasm for learning that they need to succeed in school and beyond. As a class I aim to support a cooperative, lively environment recognising each person’s unique voice, strengths and contributions.


When describing the kestrel to his teacher, Barry Hines’ hero says: “It's fierce, an' it's wild, an' it's not bothered about anybody, not even about me right. And that's why it's great.”

― Barry Hines, A Kestrel for a Knave


Let’s be fierce and wild in our learning!
