Hello! I am Mrs Smithson.
I am the Year 5/6 teacher and Science and Foundation subjects’ leader here at Keelham.
For those who already know me, you will know I have been in Year 3/4 for the past 5 years. This year I have moved up into Year 5/6; a challenge I am very much looking forward to. Alongside Mrs Croft and Ms Kopasz who join me in 5/6 and Miss Thompson and Mrs Carhart in 3/4, we are hoping to establish a fantastic Key Stage 2 team.
Having taught in Outdoor Education for 2 years I found I loved working with children and seeing them develop as young people.
The creative curriculum in 5/6 is varied; from looking at the heart and blood to the Tudors to Charles Darwin. We like to visit places to enhance our curriculum and have hands-on experiences, especially in Science.
Our main goal in Key Stage 2 is to ensure every child reaches their full potential and develops their independence ready for secondary school.
