A message from Mrs Thomson

Hi everyone, Mrs Thomson here. I’m super excited to be moving to year 5 and teaching you, I’ve heard such great things about you all!

As I’m sure most of you know (from singing assemblies) I’m a big fan of music and in particular singing and can find a song for almost any occasion. I’ve also been known to throw in a few dance moves every now and then!  I also love to read! Reading children’s books is one of my absolute favourite pastimes. Books take us on so many exciting adventures, they unlock unknown worlds and times. I can’t wait to share some of my favourites with you, I hope you love them as much as I do. One of my other favourite things to do is watch football (I also like to play it but I’m not very good at it). I’m a big Leicester City fan and have been watching them for many years. I also love watching my boys play for their local teams too.

In terms of what to expect next year, I am a strong believer in the importance of having a growth mindset. This means that we enjoy challenge and understand that making mistakes is an important part of our learning. The phrase ‘I can’t do it’ is a big no no in my classroom, unless you add the word ‘yet’ to the end of it. I strongly believe that if you are prepared to put in the effort, you can achieve whatever you set your mind to. This is going to be especially important as you make the move to Year 5 and your learning steps up a level.

I also believe that we are more than just a class; we are a team. Kindness and support for each other is essential for us all to be the best we can be. I love a classroom that is full of smiles and laughter and can’t wait to see all yours in August!

Have a great Summer

Mrs Thomson

A message from Mr Brawn

Hello! My name is Mr. Brawn, and I'm going to be your new teacher as you head into Year 5!

I will be new to Glenfield Primary, so I am very much looking forward to meeting you all in September.

I am very excited to start this new part of your learning journey with you and hit the ground running when we all return to school. I am very interested in Science and it is my favourite subject to teach. I love anything to do with space and technology, and could talk for hours about it.

I spent four years studying Drama & Theatre at university, so I do enjoy exploring texts and their themes through role play and improvisation exercises, and I am known to put on voices for characters when reading books!

I love music, gaming, TV and film, with my favourite TV show being The Simpsons. Have a wonderful summer and I'm looking forward to meeting you all soon!
