mrs edmondson

Hello! My name is Mrs Edmondson. I have been a teacher for 17 years and I can honestly say that it is the best job in the world! In spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. My own children keep me very busy. I love to cook and I am always trying new ingredients, recipes or foods. I am also a massive fan of F1  and spend most of my Sunday afternoons tuned in! I am certainly looking forward to getting to know you all. Let our Year 5 adventure begin!

Meet your teacher

mr pedley

I have been teaching for 15 years and I thoroughly enjoy my job! As a teacher, my door is always open for you to discuss your child’s academic and personal growth.
My family and friends are an important part of my life and I enjoy spending time with my 2 children. I am a huge Sheffield United fan and enjoy watching them home and away. Film, music and reading play a big part in my spare time to keep me busy when I am away from the classroom.

Hello, I am Miss Otowski. Some of you will have seen me before, in the classroom or dancing terribly on the yard. After 3 years of hard work, I’ve just completed my Learning Support Foundation Degree. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, creating artwork, listening to music and spending time in the great outdoors. I can’t wait to meet all the new Class 13 superstars. Let the adventure begin!
