This is my 8th year teaching at Webheath. I enjoy teaching maths and geography as there is always something new to learn! At the weekends, I'm often found watching my son play rugby or following his favourite football team.

In KS2 we use the Accelerated Reader Computer Program to develop, manage and monitor children’s reading skills. The children pick a book within their own ZPD range and read it at their own pace. We allocate at least 15 minutes a day to reading their book. When finished, they will take a short quiz online in school – this helps to home in on their reading skills and give an indication that they understood what has been read. AR gives both children and teachers feedback on the children’s understanding and reading habits which the teacher then uses to help the children set targets and ongoing reading practice to ensure personal growth.
Daily ‘Book Club’ is also timetabled. This provides opportunities for the children to work in small groups with an adult to develop reading skills and build a love of reading, and it gives an opportunity to read books of choice for pleasure.
We use high quality text to deliver our English Curriculum and focused reading lessons are taught within a sequence of learning.
