I have been teaching KS1 children since 1999, and have had a lot of fun in that time. I spent the first 10 years of my teaching career in the North East of England before moving back to Cheshire. I joined our team in 2010 and am delighted to be teaching and leading KS1.

I have 13 year old twin boys, Harry and Jack, who keep me very busy at the weekends playing football for both school and Frodsham. Besides this, I enjoy going to the gym with Harry and Jack as well as cooking for friends and family.

Welcome to Team Pine!

Kingsley Journals

Please ensure these are brought into school daily as this will be the main form of contact between school and home.  In the back of your child's journal, you will find a behaviour chart showing if they have remained on green.  Please also find your child's weekly spellings and weekly guided reading homeworks in their journals.  Please do not use felt pens or biro in your journals!



Weekly homework for Team Pine is:

-Weekly spellings 

-Guided Reading homework

-MyMaths tasks 

Homework can be found in your child's journal in the form of a 'Homework Menu'.  Children receive bookmark stickers for the main and pudding tasks completed, along with their weekly guided reading homework tasks.  A completed bookmark means attendance at the end of term homework celebration treat!

Optional homework:  Bug Club

Your child has the login and passwords in their journals.  I have allocated texts for your children to read.  This is not compulsory and is for children to enjoy books pitched at their reading level.


Please ensure that PE kits are kept in for the whole week.  Trainers will be needed each day for the daily mile.

Every Monday morning, we have a half hour session of 'My Happy Mind'.  So far, we have completed the 'Meet your Brain' module.  Ask your child what these parts of the brain are responsible for!  (Pre-frontal cortex, Amygdala and Hippocampus!)  We are learning all about ourselves and how to keep ourselves calm, happy and in the right frame of mind for learning.  When we are upset, stressed, or worried, we know that happy breathing helps to calm us down so we can start to think clearly again.  You can download the app for this on your phone :-) 


Please read as often as possible with your child at home.
