Hello and welcome to our class page,
After teaching in Year 1 for the past 2 years at Haddon, I am really looking forward to continuing this with your children.
My favourite things include travel, animals and food! I care for the school guinea pigs Toffee and Marshmallow and have a cockapoo called Toffee, too, and love including them in our learning. I also have an active twitter account for teaching where I often post ideas and content so feel free to follow it at @missthomteaches.
I am a very creative and active person. I love being outdoors and, this year, I hope to embed this ethos within my teaching. I believe that to effectively teach the children in my class, I must get to know them first. I am really looking forward to getting to know you and your family and hope you will get to know me too. I also believe the children should be the centre of the teaching and that they should take an active role in their own learning. Throughout this year I’m confident every child will continue their journey towards being independent and confident learners.
In Year 1 we have two lovely teaching assistants who will be working in class at different points throughout the week, Mrs Etherington and Ms Beardsall. We also have student teacher working within Year 1 called Miss Brown and supporting them in group work and with reading as well as the super Mrs Wilson (Long hair) who be teaching R.E. to Year 1 each week.
