Welcome to Year 5
It’s lovely to be back teaching year 5 after what seems like a very long time in year 6. I have taught at St. Mary’s for almost all my teaching career and love this school, so much so, my own children came here. What greater testament is that! When I’m not teaching I love reading, the cinema, weekends at the coast and walking, to name but a few things. Our family has two small dogs, Tilly a scruffy terrier cross and Fifi, a pug, both of whom take up a big part of my downtime but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love teaching, seeing a child grow and being there first hand to witness their learning is a joy and a privilege – something I’ll never grow tired of. What a great job to be in!

Adoption of Kea!
Our year 5 class have adopted a Sumatran Orangutan from the Durrell Conservation Trust, at Durrell Zoo in Jersey. Her name is Kea.
We’ll get updates as to how she’s doing and we also get to keep a mini cuddly Kea of our own, who’ll be visiting each of our homes throughout the year. This is a great opportunity for our class to learn about wildlife and endangered species, and do our bit to help our world, especially the animals in it.
