Hello, I am Mrs Cattermole and I am class teacher for Whales class.
I have been teaching for 18 years and taught from EYFS through to year 5. This will be my 3rd Year teaching Year 2 at Dale Hall and I am very excited for the year ahead. I really enjoy developing and nurturing children's ideas/interests and supporting children to become independent learners. I love nature and particularly enjoy cycling and setting off on new challenges.

Mr Catchpole

Year 2 teacher

Hi all

I'm Mr Catchpole and I am the class teacher for Dolphins. I've been teaching for 3 years and I've been at Dale Hall for nearly 9 years. I've covered across the school for many years and taught in year 3. I am very excited to be in year 2 and KS1. I love making learning fun and enjoy hearing laughter and learning in my classroom.

Fun fact: I can touch the roof of my classroom and have been asked to prove it by many children before!
