Welcome to Wagtails!
In Wagtails class we have daily phonics, literacy and maths sessions and children are actively encouraged to practice the skills they are learning at home by reading with family or by engaging with homework. Participating in home learning is rewarded with stickers and a dip in the treat basket at the end of term!
We have 6 half-termly topics this year:
The children have had a super start to the year, and we are looking forward to showing off our learning to the rest of the school and to the families.
I am a Newly Qualified Teacher, but many of the children will be familiar with me after 2 years supporting learning in Kingfisher class and one year of teaching Year 4/5 Penguins with Mrs Pool while I worked towards my qualification.
I love teaching phonics and early reading/ writing, and I also enjoy having the opportunity to allow children to continue to learn through play!
When not in school, I am kept busy with four children of my own. We enjoy gardening, walking and planning adventures together. We have a 1 year old Sprocker Spaniel called Cooper, so we can often be found walking him on a beach or through the fields around our home.
