About me

I am always striving to use my 10 years’ teaching experience to make lessons engaging and memorable for the children I teach. We learn by our mistakes in a safe environment and work together to help each other learn new skills and knowledge. As well as being the current Year 3 teacher, I am also responsible for developing the teaching and learning of computing across the school and am passionate about helping children develop their ideas, with the aid of technology.

I am the Year 2 teacher and I lead music and R.E. at school.  Music, both in school and outside of school, is one of my loves and, in my class, we sing throughout the day.  As a church school, worship and R.E. are central to our ethos and I help support our strong presence in the school and local community.

Teacher, SENCO and Assessment Co-ordinator

 

About me

I joined the Upton team in 2015.  I currently teach alongside the teachers in Year 6 and 4.  I am part of the Senior Leadership Team within the school – leading assessment across the school and working closely with the Headteacher to analyse attainment and progress of our pupils. But my biggest passion is Maths – which I am sure the children will also tell you. I am the subject leader for maths and I just love watching the children grow into problem solvers – nothing beats giving the children a problem and seeing their faces light up with excitement as they try to solve it!
