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.

Welcome back everyone to a very busy Spring Term.
