I have been teaching at Woodlands Primary School since September 2013. I am passionate about teaching all subject, but I really enjoy teaching Literacy, exploring different narratives and writing imaginatively and creatively. This year, I will be working closely with Mrs Liversey to develop literacy across Woodlands. My weekly highlight is singing assembly with KS2. I love bopping along to tunes from 'The Greatest Showman' with KS2. When not in school, I can usually be found running round after my two children, reading them stories or baking yummy treats in the kitchen.
My motto is 'Shoot for the moon, even if you miss you'll land among the stars!'

This is my first year teaching at Woodlands Primary School. My favourite subject to teach is mathematics. I love making the lessons fun and enjoyable. I am very passionate about the humanities and religious education as I believe these subjects to be very interesting and important. When I am not at school, I can be found exercising and travelling to new cities and countries. Most of all, I love spending time with my family and friends.

I am new to Woodlands Primary School this year and can’t wait to start in Year 3. I really enjoy teaching Maths. I also like teaching fun and engaging science lessons. I also love Art because it can be so fun and creative. When I am not in school, I enjoy watching live music, going for long walks at the beach and spending time with her friends and family. I am very excited to be a teacher at Woodlands this year in Class 12 and cannot wait to help my class in their new adventure in Year 3!

Welcome to Y3!

Literacy: Mastery Targets – Spring 1

  • To use conjunctions to express time, place or cause
  • To create characters, settings and plot in narrative
  • To suggest improvements to grammar and vocabulary
  • To use adverbs to express time

My on-going targets are:

  • Use punctuation at Yr 2 standard correctly (full stops, capital letters, exclamation marks, question marks, commas in a list, apostrophes for contraction and possession)
  • Use subordination (when, if, that, because) and co-ordination (or, and, but)
  • Use present nd past tenses consistently and correctly
  • Use noun phrases and prepositions to add detail
  • Group related ideas into paragraphs



Following the festivities, the Year 3 team wanted to take the opportunity to consider people who are less fortunate than ourselves. Whilst studying the novel Winters child by Angela McAllister, we want to consider what it would be like to be homeless during the bitter, frosty and unforgiving season of winter. Personally, children will be given time to think carefully about separating their needs and wants using Maslow’s Hierarchy of needs.


We will be working closely with Chester Aid to the homeless to challenge our perceptions and stereotypes of homeless people, evaluate the amount of homeless in our locality and compare to the UK as a whole, and think about what makes a good town to provide for homeless people.

Locally, we hope to work alongside ‘The Port Grocery’ to support homelessness in our area, designing cheap, nutritious meals and collecting food which is close to or on its sell by date. On a more global scale, we will consider the natural disasters which make many people homeless, and how the people overcome thisand begin rebuild their lives. This could include the very recent tsunami and volcanic eruptions from Anak Krakatau. 


Trips and visits....

This half term Year 3 will;

  • Continue their weekly visits to Hope Farm Library
  • Take part in workshops led by Chester Aid 
  • Parents will be invited to join their children at our Maths Extravanganza. Letters coming soon!
