Welcome to Ferne Class!
For as long as I can remember, I have always wanted to be a teacher. Growing up in London with my two siblings, I was always role-playing being the teacher and my poor brother and sister were the class.
I qualified to be a teacher at Goldsmiths University in London. I started my teaching career in a large inner city London school 12 years ago. Since 2013 I have been at Bickerstaffe school and feel proud to have been part of so many children's journeys. I am passionate about the teaching of early reading and love to see the magic when children read for the first time. I have recently achieved my Forest School Leader Award and look forward to taking my class into our outside space each week. In my spare time, my two little girls are on hand to keep me busy at home too. We love days out and lots of time outside!
Each Thursday children get a handwriting/mark-making homework. They hand back their homework folders on Tuesdays, they are marked and children collect stickers for each completed piece of homework. Alongside this, children read at home at least 4 times a week, and parents will sign their reading charts. They can work their way through the reading rainbow. We appreciate all your help and support with their learning at home! :)
