Welcome to our Year 6 Page!
Hello everyone and welcome to Year Six. Your teachers are excited to welcome you back to school and are ready to support you through your final year at Monkwood.
Meet your Teachers
I started my job at Monkwood straight from university and I loved it so much that I stayed for twenty-eight years. I have taught in every key stage two year group many times and I am extremely excited to be your teacher in year six this year. It’s going to be a fabulous year! I am a very proud mum to a son, Jake, who will start at university this year studying history and politics. At home, I love to read and escape into the adventures of a good story. My favourite thing to do is laugh so let’s make it a fun and exciting year together.
Class 15 Teacher
I have been part of the Monkwood family for twenty-three years and have probably taught some of your parents too! I have taught various year groups throughout school but have spent most of my time in year 6. I am REALLY looking forward to being one of your teachers this year and getting to know you all. It’s going to be a fabulous year! I can’t wait for all the fantastic learning which will take place, along with all the exciting experiences we have in store for you. When I’m not at school, I like to spend time with my family, especially my two young children. My favourite thing is going on day trips with them and having lots of fun and amazing adventures.
Class 15 Teacher
I’ve worked at Monkwood Primary School for over 20 years now! My other role in school (as a HLTA) has been to plan P.S.H.E and R.E lessons and teach in classes throughout school when the class teacher isn’t there or has PPA time so I may have even taught you in one of your previous classes. If not, I’m sure that you’ll have seen me around school or on the playground.
I have two grown-up children and you might know my daughter who also works at our school. In my spare time, I love cooking delicious meals, going for walks and sometimes runs. I also visit the gym. My favourite pastime though, and when I’m happiest, is when I’m sat on my sofa with a good book and a bar of chocolate!
Class 15 HLTA
I have worked at Monkwood for the last 5 years and previously worked in another local Rotherham school. I am Monkwood’s science leader and am keen on helping children to develop a love of science. I am a mum to two children, Brandon aged 11 and Ruby aged 9 who are both very active and keep me on my toes. I love sport and regularly attend taekwondo classes and pilates. As a family we love walking, biking, sometimes going for a run together and relaxing on the settee with a big bag of popcorn to have a family film night. Our favourite holiday each year is skiing where I’m now having to make sure I’m fit enough to keep up with the kids! Looking forward to seeing you all soon ready for a fabulous year 6!
Class 16 Teacher
I have taught at Monkwood Primary for seven years and have worked in Foundation Stage as well as upper and lower Key Stage two. I am also our school’s Maths coordinator. I am a proud mummy to two cheeky little boys, Jasper aged 6 and Archie aged 3. We love to spend our weekends walking, cycling, building and making things; we love Lego. I have a degree in Sports Science and love most types of sport. I also enjoy Art and D.T and am always getting creative at home and at school (just wait and see). I hope that you are all ready to have a brilliant school year – I can’t wait!
Class 16 Teacher
Most of you will already know me from working as a HLTA throughout school. I have been working at Monkwood for the last 18 years – I’m part of the fixture and fittings! I am a mum to two grown-up children, Jessica and Jack, who both came to Monkwood and a very spoilt dog called Tilly. I am looking forward to seeing you in September.
