Leopards Class Teacher
I am thrilled to be able to work with the children this year as they work towards their moves to High school and can't wait to help them to enjoy every minute of their last year at Dale Hall. Working with children at this stage of their schooling is always such a privilege as they change and grow so much and make every day so different.
This year we have planned to use some incredible, thought-provoking texts that will open up lots of channels for discussion and give the chance for plenty of independent thought: things that I believe are of enormous value for our children. I am passionate about helping children to develop confidence and allowing them to find the best person that they can be and our work this year will aim to do these things.
Although I have been teaching for a VERY long time, every year I continue to learn so many new things from the children and I am looking forward to seeing what I learn this year.

Hello everyone! I am extremely excited about teaching in Year 6 this year. We have put together a curriculum which I know is going to excite and inspire the children. We have selected an array of fantastic, thought provoking texts to base our learning around this year and I can't wait to get started.
My main aim this year is to ensure all children in Year 6 finish their time at Dale Hall well prepared for their next step in life. I will help guide the children to make sure they are taking responsibility for their learning and fulfilling their potential. Most importantly, I am determined to give Year 6 an unforgettable final year at Primary School!

I love teaching Year 6 Lions on a weds afternoon and any other time I can! I teach Art, Handwriting and Reading and we often develop this into all three.

William Grill weaves a detailed visual narrative of Shackleton's journey to Antarctica. His beautiful use of coloured pencils and vibrant hues effortlessly evokes the adventure and excitement that surrounded the expedition. His impeccably researched drawings, rich with detail, fastidiously reproduce the minutiae of the expedition.
Children will love examining the diagrams of the peculiar provisions and the individual drawings of each sled dog and packhorse. This book takes the academic and historical information behind the expedition and reinterprets it for a young audience.
