Class teachers Mrs Oddy - Mon/Tues/Thurs/Fri
Miss Watkins- Weds
Mrs Hemingway Full time nursery nurse
Mrs Oddy has been teaching since 1997 from Nursery aged children up to Year 2. Before that she worked as a voluntary instructor in Outdoor Education centres in the Dales and the Lake District with children aged 11-18. Her hobbies therefore include climbing, hill walking, skiing, diving and paragliding. She also had a gap year in 2000 travelling round the world.
Mrs Oddy and Mrs Hemmingway say their classroom has been designed to inspire, to create excitement, to aid learning, to help the children become independent. To be interactive and engage children natural inquisitive minds. The outdoor classroom includes opportunities in engaging with nature and to carry on the continuous curriculum outside.
We are a highly motivated, caring, enthusiastic team with high expectations of our children. We aim to build excellent foundations for the children, scaffolding their learning to prepare them for their time in Netherthong Primary School and beyond.
