Years 1 and 2 are taught by Miss Pitchford. Here is a little about Miss Pitchford in her own words.
"I trained to be a teacher at Sheffield Hallam University and graduated in 2016. I have been working at Arkwright permanently for 3 years after previously training here for a year prior; once I had qualified I gained a position covering maternity. It is a great place to work and you can feel the warm, friendly atmosphere as soon as you walk in; the best thing about working in a small school is you have the chance to get to know every child. The children in my class are generally hardworking, adventurous and funny. I love teaching all subjects and helping children to learn something new, I enjoy challenging children to try new things and develop their mind-set. I would say that my favourite subjects are P.E and French. I am very lucky to be able to lead P.E here at Arkwright. I have lots of wonderful things going on outside of school at the moment; I am due to get married in December this year to my partner, Brad after almost 8 years together, so with the help of my mum, I am busy planning. When I have some relaxation time, I love walking in Sherwood Pines with my dog, Teddy and attending HIIT classes at my gym".
This half term the children's topic will be 'Would The Beatles have won The X-Factor or Britains Got Talent in 2020?'
