Hello to our new children and welcome back to those that have been with us last year. We have an exciting half term coming up with our overall topic focussing upon - All About Magical Me.
Class Teacher - Mrs Sharpe
Hello, this is my sixth year at The Bawburgh School. I love teaching in Flamingos class, and really enjoy seeing the benefits that a creative curriculum allows. As a member of the senior leadership team I look forward to being part of the drive forward in developing our children to the best of their abilities. As the overall lower school lead it is a pleasure to see how the children develop confidence ready to tackle their learning in KS2. In Year One and Reception, our children are free to learn the way that they choose, in our lovely outdoor area and in the canopy area. The children really maximise the opportunities for learning in our outdoor learning. We are very lucky to have Mrs Courtney who is able to join us on Tuesdays to consolidate outdoor learning in her area of expertise. Our newly decorated and furnished indoor areas provide stimulating environments that are equipped with learning resources that excite and engage our children. I must add they also excite and engage me as well!
I have a big passion for phonics, literacy and maths and have facilitated many workshops for children, adults and those with special needs in my teaching and non-teaching career. I feel that music and performance is essential in an infant classroom as it helps to engage, entertain and capture the children's imaginations. Our Christmas productions always bring such pride and joy to me and the children gain self-esteem and confidence so that they can tackle anything in their learning. I am pleased to be working with Ms Vincent who is a talented and experienced teaching assistant and Mrs Savage who has joined us in her teacher training year. Mrs Holgate joins us on a Thursday and with her experience and expertise in RE and PHSE I feel the children are very lucky to have such a talented team to support them this year. I am very excited about the year ahead knowing all adults will bring new and exciting ideas to the team. Outside of school I enjoy meeting up with friends, going out to eat, and reading and writing stories. However my favourite past time is being with my children and grandchildren! My favourite hobby is reading a good book and eating chocolate (preferably at the same time!) but I am very fussy, I like chocolate with no bits in it!
