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!'

I have been teaching at Woodlands Primary school for two years. I am passionate about teaching all subjects but I particularly enjoy teaching mathematics. I love making the lessons active and enjoyable for the children, allowing them to deepen their mathematical understanding whilst having fun. I also love teaching Religious Education to widen children’s understanding of the world and its various cultures and religions.
When I am not in school, I like to keep myself busy with exercise and going on long countryside walks. I also enjoy travelling to new cities and countries, and spending time with my family and friends. I can’t wait to continue our learning journey together next year and learn even more about everyone’s hopes and dreams. It is going to be a very exciting year!

Welcome to Y4!

This half term, Year 4 will be reading the animated disney classic novel, 'Dumbo.' We will focus on all aspects of reading; decoding, fluency for reading, retrieval skills, inference and deduction and comprehension. We will also compare the narrative to film extracts to discuss differing interpretations. 



The children will develop their knowledge of how people are entertained and changes that have happened through time. They will look closely at circuses and theatres and consider their use of animals as entertainment tools. The children will use their mapping skills to locate theatres and circuses on a world map.
