Welcome to Year 4/5
Welcome to Year 4/5! Full of fun, facts and fantastic children. Be warned, when you enter Year 4/5 you must be prepared to dance, laugh and sing your way through the day, just like Miss Wilkinson does! In Year 4/5, Miss Wilkinson is supported by Mrs Black.
Hi, I am Miss Wilkinson and I am the teacher in Year 4/5.
So…a little bit about me. As a child I attended Etherley Lane Primary School and loved every second! I used to come home from school and line up my cuddly toys, Barbies and dolls and teach them how to count and read with my little blackboard and chalk. I was mesmerised by my teachers and I knew that this was what I wanted to be when I grew up!
After leaving school, I completed my teaching assistant’s qualification at Durham and then went onto Northumbria University to study Early Primary Education. I really enjoyed university as it gave me the experience in a range of different settings with children and could see teaching from every angle. I have worked with babies up to children in year 11 at secondary school. I
spent time working in special needs schools to broaden my knowledge on this subject. I then came to Etherley Lane and worked across the school in a range of year groups.
Then I got a job in Year 3 but I am now the Year 4/5 teacher . I love it!
As many of you know I LOVE dancing and I have danced from a young age. I try and get as many staff and children involved in dancing as possible! I hear music and it instantly makes me want to dance, especially the Vengaboys! Dancing makes me ridiculously happy along with llamas…my favourite animal! They are so cute!
Class 8 have had so much fun in the lead up to christmas this year! We have made snowman soup and christmas decorations to sell at our christmas fair. We had an amazing time doing our Key Stage 2 christmas performance and sharing this with our friends and family. We also celebrated christmas jumper day in school and the day was topped off with a fantastic christmas lunch made by our fabulous Etherley Lane cooks!
