Tweet One of the most important elements in a novel or short story is characterization:
My favourite teacher at school was a science teacher called Wendy Sibley. She made us prepare and teach small 5 minute segments of the lessons to help develop our confidence in speaking in front of people.
It was her teaching methods that made me decide to pursue a career in teaching. I also like the books by David Walliams because I really like his recurring character of the newsagent Raj and his special offers.
I am a great fan of Formula One. My secret skill would be singing although not so secret in assemblies! I very much enjoy my job, working with others, getting to know the children and learning from them.
Believe it or not! I started life as a PE teacher in what seems quite a long time ago. Outside of school I enjoy being a member of Wimborne Running Club. At the moment I am aiming to lose some weight and find some fitness.
I really enjoy taking part in the weekly ParkRun in Poole Park and have completed of them. I can recommend ParkRun to everyone.
I am also hoping to return to playing some recreational tennis after back and Achilles injuries. My favourite teacher was Mr Edwards who was a history teacher and used to do impressions of famous people. The teacher that I remember the most from school is my History teacher, who was called Mrs Brenchley no relation to our Mrs Brenchley though I believe!
I loved that she was so kind and seemed genuinely pleased to see us each lesson. She taught us by simply reading out her hand written notes really slowly for us to write down.
I remember presenting her with a typed copy of her notes at the end of the year and she was thrilled with the gift! It also made my cry at the end — which means it must be a great book! I would say that my secret skill is bubble writing because every time I show my classes how to write something using bubble writing they make very satisfying noises of delight — and surprise.
Thank you for that! A surprising fact about me is that I have travelled to over fifteen different countries. My interests out of school revolve around my family and my two springer spaniel dogs. We love a muddy walk in Puddletown forest with friends and have enjoyed the excitement and fun of two litters of puppies in the last few years.
Hopefully we will have the chance to fill a few more homes with lovable pups in the near future.Dear Parents/Carers, Please note the following letter which was sent out to all KS2 pupils this afternoon.
