Hello there! I started teaching in 2000 and have been lucky enough to teach in several different schools over the years, both London and East Sussex. I have a degree in Applied Biology and my favourite subject to teach is Science. I am married and have two wonderful (and sometimes not wonderful boys) aged 13 and 10. We enjoy spending time on walks, especially in woods and any place with water. I LOVE to read, especially curled up on the sofa with a cup of tea. I also LOVE cooking and sharing food with family and friends. My favourite food is anything Thai. I also LOVE anything whimsical and creative, so I have recently started to make fairy doors in my spare time.
In Year 1, we work hard to become good learners, ready to tackle the National Curriculum. We continue to have opportunities to play and engage in practical activities, whilst learning to read, write and apply number facts with increasing fluency, independence and confidence.
Our topics are all based around books, chosen to excite the children in cross curricular lessons and ignite a passion for reading.
