Mrs Williams 3/4LW

Hello, I am Mrs Williams. I have worked at Woodlands for 17 years, I think I'm part of the fixtures and fittings now! I have worked across Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2, and am currently Early Years and Phonics Lead in school. I am extremely passionate about Early Years Education and believe that firm foundations and learning through play are the keys to instilling a life long love of learning in our youngest children.
I have 2 daughters aged 9 and 5 who constantly keep me busy! We love to spend time together as a family exploring in the woods, going to the park or the beach or simply visiting Grandparents and Great-Grandparents. We also love reading, crafty activities (who doesn't love a bit of glitter?) and going shopping!

Hi there, I am Mrs Barrett. This is my fifth year at Woodlands and my first in Year 3. This is my ninth year of teaching and prior to working here, I taught in Melbourne, Australia, which I loved, but there really is no place like home!
I enjoy teaching Literacy as I am passionate about creative writing and reading and I love seeing child develop their own styles of writing.
I am the music lead for Woodlands and enjoy creating opportunities for our children to express themselves through the arts. My favourite day of the school year is our Young Voices concert, where we sing in Manchester with over 8000 other children from schools in the North West.
Outside of school, I love floristry, learning new things, fitness and have completed 3 marathons, including London. I am currently training for London 2023. I am also very busy with my two puppies and enjoy nothing more than exploring the Wirral beaches with them.
I am very much looking forward to another year working closely with the team at Woodlands.

Hi everyone! I am Miss Hughes and I’m extremely excited to be returning to Woodlands Primary School as your year 3 teacher.

I am passionate about history and maths as these were my favourite subjects when I was at school. I love my job of teaching and I can’t wait to find out which subjects you enjoy and to make the learning as enjoyable as possible.

When I am not in school, I enjoy spending time with my friends, family, and my little girl Felicity. I also love to spend time going on walks and exploring the outdoors (when the weather is sunny!!).

I am very excited to be your Year 3 teacher. My wish for our classroom is to be friendly, filled with joy and have fantastic teamwork. I can’t wait to meet you all!

Welcome to Y3!

Playing together every day, Tom hardly notices that spring doesn't come - until he realises the terrible effect the delay is having on the countryside and his sick grandma. His friend is Winter's child, and for the seasons to go on the friends must say goodbye until next year.
