This year I will be teaching year 5 in Apollo Class. I am excited to begin the year and to be a part of all the amazing things that our class will accomplish! The children are now experienced members of KS2 and are role models to the rest of the children in the school. I am sure that during the year they will continue to set an amazing example to the rest of the school. Throughout the year I am looking forward to seeing the progress that the children are going to make both in their work and in maturing further.
I enjoy teaching all of the subjects in the curriculum but I particularly enjoy writing and history lessons. Writing opens up worlds of imagination, nothing quite beats a child’s creativity and invention in a piece of writing. Throughout the year we will always be thinking of ways to give a purpose to our writing (letters to authors, poetry recitals etc.) and I am sure the children will enjoy and progress in their writing very well. In history lessons, children seem to have an amazing ability to absorb all the facts and information about the time period they are studying. It is brilliant when, by the end of a topic, the children have acquired a bank of amazing knowledge that they have learnt in class and also learnt themselves in their own free time.
I am excited to work with Apollo Class throughout the coming year. I look forward to meeting you at parents evening and during the coming weeks. If there are any questions of queries please feel free to come and see me at school either before or after the school day.
