I am really looking forward to teaching Ash this year and leading the Year 3 and 4 Phase.
I am a HUGE book lover and can not wait to recommend some of my books in school to the children in the class - I'm sure there is something for everyone. I have a background in performing and love dance and drama, both participating and watching. In addition to being a teacher, I am also a mum, which is why I will be in school only 4 days a week. On Tuesdays, Ash will be taught by the very experienced and knowledgeable Mrs Mossom. She will also be teaching Ash every other Wednesday morning.
Ash will also be supported by Miss Stewart. Mrs Reader will support in the mornings and Mrs Aripin will support us in the afternoon. Mr Naylor will also be supporting groups. We are all here to help the children to be the B.E.S.T. they can be.
The children will very quickly learn that I welcome mistakes; no-one is perfect and it is through our mistakes that we learn and grow. All I ask is that they try their best, just as I will - then we can be proud of ourselves and of our achievements.
I am sure we will all have a fantastic year together.
Our main classroom door for the start and end of the school day is the Ash rear classroom door.
Our regular PE days are as follows:
Indoor PE (Swimming) - Tuesday
Outdoor PE - Friday
On these days children should come to school in PE kit, including on swimming days.
From Tuesday the 14th of September to Tuesday the 30th of November the children will be participating in swimming lessons, which will count as their PE session for those days.
