I joined St Andrew’s in September 2010 having qualified in 2009 with a degree in Primary Education. I began my time at the school as Year 4 teacher and carried out this role until 2014. I then taught in Year 1 for a year before moving to Year 2 in 2015. I am now entering my third year as Year 2 teacher. I have enjoyed myself immensely throughout my seven years at St Andrew’s and have built excellent relationships with both staff and pupils. In addition to my teaching role I am ICT Co-ordinator, Educational Visits Co-ordinator and Teacher Governor. I am also part of the Teaching & Learning team.
We are very fortunate in Year 2 to have the assistance of Mrs Kiminski who has worked as a Teaching Assistant at St Andrew’s for the past ten years. Mrs Kiminski has worked in all Year groups especially in Pre-School. She is a very keen singer and works alongside Mrs Wilkinson and Mrs Ainsworth running the school choir. Also joining the Year 2 team is Mrs Allonby who started at St Andrew’s in February 2017 as a level 2 apprentice.
In Year 2 we will cover lots of exciting topics including:
- The place where I live
- Fighting fit
- The farm shop
- Wind in the willows
- Buckets and spades
