Hello, My name is Miss Holbeck and I will be the new reception teacher for Cats class. As a new member of staff at Crossley Hall Primary School, I am extremely excited to be given the opportunity to teach reception. To give you some brief information about myself, I have worked in Bradford schools since graduating in 2016 with my degree in Early Years Education. The bulk of my experience has been teaching in Year 1 and Reception. I have spent the past school year on supply since returning home from an around the world trip. During my time of supply, I gained a lot of new ideas and experience from other local schools in Bradford, one being Crossley Hall Primary. After 6 enjoyable weeks on supply in Ducklings in 2020 I knew I wanted to come back. During my spare time I enjoy, travel, music and spending time with friends and family, including my young nieces and nephews. In school I enjoy being busy at the creative table, I’m sure we can make lots of lovely pictures together! I also enjoy sharing stories, I can’t wait to find out which books you like so we can read and enjoy them together. One of my favourite stories is ‘The Smartest Giant in Town’, I think Julia Donaldson is a fantastic author. I’m looking forward to meeting you all soon and can’t wait for all the fun we will have in Cats!
Hi, My name is Miss Shaw! I have been teaching in Early Years since qualifying as a teacher 4 years ago. For the last 3 years I have worked in Nursery and I am excited to move back up to Reception this year!
When I am at home I do lots of baking, making tasty treats like brownies, cheesecake, snd biscuits. I like to try to bake buns and biscuits with you at school too!
At school, I like messy play like powder paint, shaving foam and mud! I like reading stories and have got lots of favourites, ‘The Gruffalo’, ‘We’re going on a Bear Hunt’,’Peter Rabbit’ and lots, lots more. I also like joining in with role play, and love to play Doctors.
I am looking forward to meeting you all soon and having lots of fun in Reception Ducklings!
My name is Miss Greenwood. I have worked in Early Years since I left school and became a teacher 2 years ago. I have been teaching in Key Stage 1 for the last year and I am so excited to join you all in Reception in September.
At home, I love to be outside whatever the weather even rainy days! I also like to go to the cinema and to read books. I like to sing and dance and have lots of fun and I am sure we will get to do lots of that in our new classroom!
I am excited to get to know you all and your families during our time in Elephants class.
