A message from Miss Wadkin


My name is Miss Wadkin and I am the teacher in the Detectives.

In the Detectives you will learn lots of new things and have a lot of fun too! There will be lots of games to help you learn maths and phonics and the opportunity to explore lots of things in Science, History and Geography. My favourite subject to teach is Science because I like exploring and doing different experiments.

We love reading in the Detectives and have a cosy reading area where you can go and read your favourite book. Throughout the year we will read lots of amazing stories together including, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Lost in the Toy Museum, Snail and the Whale and the Paddington books. My favourite author is Roald Dahl and like to read his stories at story time.

You will also get to be creative in the Detectives and do lots of arts and crafts. I love music and singing so we will do lots of songs and some dancing too!

I can’t wait for you to join the Detectives in the new school year. I am looking forward to meeting you all 🙂

A message from Miss King


My name is Miss King and I am the year 1 teacher in Discoverers.

I am really looking forward to meeting you all and getting to know lots more about you. Year 1 is a great year to be in as we have lots of fun, practical and engaging lessons that I hope you will all enjoy. We will begin the year with one of my favourite topics – Toys. You will get to play and explore with old and new toys, read lots of exciting stories about toys and even bring in one of your own to share with your friends! Throughout the year we will also include topics such as, Paddington, Under the Sea and Explorers.

My favourite subjects to teach are phonics and geography. I really enjoy teaching all the sounds and tricky words that will help you to become brilliant readers and fantastic writers. The best way to learn new things is through games and practical activities and this is why I enjoy phonics so much. I also enjoy geography because I enjoy learning about the world around us and it is great to hear children sharing their experiences of where they live and places they have visited.

I hope you all have a great summer and look forward to meeting you in September.
