Miss Roberts 2DR

Hi! I am Miss Roberts, and I am the KS1 lead. This will be my sixth year teaching at
Woodlands Primary School, and I am so excited for another fantastic year at such a
supportive school.
I am passionate about teaching all subjects but I particularly enjoy physical education and mathematics. I believe that physical activity should be at the heart of all learning to support our personal and academic development. I also enjoy the opportunities within both PE and maths to problem solve and work together.
When I am not in school, I like to keep myself busy with exercise and going on long
countryside walks. I also enjoy travelling to new cities and countries, and spending time with
my family and friends.

Mr Barnes 2PB

Hello everyone! I am Mr Barnes and I have been working at Woodlands Primary School for 17 years across EYFS, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.
I am passionate about the Arts and have led a number of whole school art projects since starting at Woodlands. One of the most successful projects was the one based on the impact of palm oil on animals in Sumatra. It was in association with Chester Zoo and the school looked amazing when completed. The children produced work of such a high standard and more importantly, understood how important it is to look out for products using sustainable palm oil ingredients.
Outside of school, I have two children, Mia, 18 and Charlie who is 16. I enjoy running, cycling, football and most of all, being with my family. I cannot wait to learn more about you, and discover what your passions, hopes and dreams are!
I am very excited to be your new teacher and I cannot wait to help you to be the best you can be!
