Year 5

Hello, I am Miss Barker and I am the Year 5 teacher. I adore being a teacher and cannot wait for another fun-filled year in Year 5! I am thoroughly enthusiastic and motivated in creating a learning environment, which is built on trust, independence, respect, a love of learning and most importantly a lot of fun! Outside of school, I love spending time with my family and friends, reading a good book, going for long walks in the countryside and eating far too many sweets!

Miss Lord, Mrs Marston, Mrs Johnston and Mr Stevens will be working with us this year!
