Meet your teacher

I enjoy anything to do with Maths, Music or History and I love learning new information and facts.

I enjoy teaching all subjects in year 5/6 but I especially enjoy the more challenging maths. We have some great units planned for you and we are very excited to teach them. We hope you will enjoy them as much as we will.

Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family. I have two daughters called Bella and Betsy, two dogs called Bronte and Bailey and two guinea pigs called Bear and BaaBaa. Yes they are all ‘B’ names! I also play in a brass band called Barnsley Brass. I’m sure you’ve seen me at Christmas time!

Meet your Teaching Assistant

Miss Barker

Hello, I’m Miss Barker. I’m new to Upper Key Stage 2. I have been a Teaching Assistant for 4 years in a secondary school and this year I have spent my time in Foundation Stage. I’m looking forward to a new adventure this year with all of you.

I have two daughters and we enjoy singing and dancing together (even though I am not very good at either!) We spend a lot of our time out in the garden or having fun in parks. We especially love visiting theme parks and going on rides.

My favourite subject in school is maths as I enjoy solving problems based on fractions and algebra. I also love to complete jigsaw puzzles and read plenty of books in my spare time. Erin and I are currently reading Harry Potter together.
