Class 3 - The Bewitching Butterflies 2016 - 2017
Hi. I'm the class 3 teacher and I teach Year 5 and 6 children. Before I started teaching at this school, I spent two years travelling around the world exploring lots of wonderful countries. I love to spend as much time as I can outside although my new classroom is lovely. I enjoy all aspects of teaching but particularly art and forest school.
Hello, I'm Mrs Rawcliffe the teaching assistant in Class3. I live in Cark with my husband David and four children who have all attended this school. Before becoming a teaching assistant, I worked for many years as a nurse. Aspects of learning that I particularly enjoy are Science, History and any type of activity that encourages the children to find out things for themselves and sparks their curiosity.
