Year 5

Mrs Howells

Year 5 Teacher

Hello, I am Mrs Howells and I joined Wicklea in 2017 having previously worked at Waycroft. I am particularly interested in children using skills such as questioning to facilitate their learning. Prior to teaching at Wicklea, I have also taught at Parson St Primary and in France! Before going into education, I worked as part of a business support training programme. Outside of school I love to read and am part of a book group, I also enjoy running and participated in the Bristol Half! Travelling is also a passion of mine. I have visited Central America, Japan and USA to name a few!

Mrs Kendall

My name is Mrs Kendall and I teach Birch Class. Since graduating university, I have worked in education, most recently In a Special Educational Needs provision. I enjoy all arts and crafts from using chalk to weaving, and always find a way to be creative in the classroom! Outside of school, I enjoy walking, reading, and playing the guitar.

Mrs Barton

Year 5 Teacher

I'm Mrs Barton and I've been with Wicklea Academy since we opened back in 2014. I've taught in years 3 and 4 here and it's currently my second year in Year 5. I love all the exciting things we learn about in this year group such as the Ancient Greeks, Space and World War II. When I'm not at school, I love to cook, travel and get out and about with my family. My bulldog Baxter loves his long walks so most weekends we'll be out walking somewhere getting muddy!

Mr Aidan Hazard

I am Mr Hazard. I have many areas of interest in the primary subjects, but Science would have to be one of my favourites. I am an enthusiastic person and hope that the children can see this in my teaching. Outside of teaching, I love experimenting with my culinary skills, but also adore being outside: come rain or shine, there’s nothing better than hiking, camping or kayaking in the great outdoors.
