I am so fortunate to be able to work across the whole school in my role, and meet all the children and teach so many wonderful topics.

I am torn between two children’s books, both by Roald Dahl, which are George’s Marvellous Medicine and Danny the Champion of the World. Both take me back to my childhood when my Mum or Dad would share them with me. I have since followed this tradition on with my classes over the years.

I love the outdoors and being in North Devon is a dream. It allows me to explore the beach, enjoy the waves, walk the moors and coastal paths and take part in a whole host of other outdoor pursuits.

My favourite book as a child has to be The Jolly Postman! I loved taking out each of the letters, especially the birthday card with the money inside!

I am really proud of my classroom and the class that I have. We have already shared some great times together and am looking forward now to Christmas and putting on our Panto!!
