    Class teacher

    Let me introduce myself! I am in my second year of teaching here at Heygarth Primary School, I have a passion for Early Years and thoroughly enjoy watching the children grow and develop as the year progresses. I have recently completed my Forest School training and will spend the next year completing my training tasks and portfolio. I can't wait to implement Forest Schools here at Heygarth Primary as outdoor learning is my passion and I love to explore the seasons with the children. I also love to sing! You will often find me singing nursery rhymes at the top of my lungs with the children! I can't wait for the fun and adventures that this year will bring. Outside of school I enjoy running, mountain walking, skiing and paddleboarding!

    Teaching Assistant

    I have been a Teaching Assistant at Heygarth Primary within Early Years for approximately four years. I love to see those smiley little faces and watch them flourish as the year progresses. I have two children who are both taller than me now, how time flies! We really enjoy the outdoors and go hiking, cycling and on some occasions coasteering - not for the faint hearted! Working with your little darlings is a pleasure - thank you!

Nursery Rhyme of the week!
Every Wednesday we will be sending home "Nursery Rhyme of the week" for you to practise,enjoy and share with your child. We will then sing the Nursery Rhymes lots of times in school too!
Labels! Labels! Labels!
We cannot stress enough how important it is to label your child's clothing and belongings! It makes life very difficult when trying to distinguish between 30 jumpers..all the same colour... when they have no names in them! 
Autumn Term
The children have settled into Foundation 1 exceptionally well, we are very proud of each and every one of them! The fun has already commenced...
Christmas 2018
We had a wonderful December full of excitement in the build up to Christmas. The fairies visited the classroom and put up a Christmas tree and decorations.  We performed Whoops a Daisy Angel for our families and danced to "Sparkle and Shine", we were beautiful stars! Then we had a magical visit from Santa and had an amazing Christmas party! Alongside this we made great Christmas crafts and gingerbread reindeer.
