Year 1

Miss K Hastings

Teacher (Wrens)

My interests: My favourite thing to do is to spend time with my family and friends. I am a total bookworm who loves to read! I enjoy visiting different places, going to the theatre, crafting things and listening to music. I absolutely love animals but sadly I don’t own any pets (yet!). I have lived in York, Oxford, Manchester and the Wirral.

A fun fact about me: I love spending time at the seaside and when I was little, I won a crab fishing competition in Wales!

Miss S Hinton

Teacher (Robins)

My interests: I enjoy spending time with my friends and my son, Jack, who also went to Meadow, and is now in High School. When I'm not being a taxi driver for him and his friends ferrying them to various sporting activities, I enjoy going away for weekends and finding new places to explore. I trained to be a teacher here at Meadow 9 years ago and loved it so much I never left! .

A fun fact about me: I am extremely clumsy and have broken my wrist 5 times!

Mrs J Spencer

Teacher (Robins)

My interests: I love delicious food and enjoy cooking and baking using the fruits and vegetables that I have grown in my garden. I enjoy dancing, swimming and going for walks with friends and family. I love nothing more than finding a bargain and enjoy hunting in charity shops, car boot sales and shop sales for the best buys! My ideal day is a day on the beach where I can relax in the sun with music and a good book, but also bodyboard on the waves and explore in the rockpools with my young children.

I love being a part of the Meadow Primary family and it makes me happy to be able to help and be there for the children and to see them learn.

A fun fact about me: I am extremely competitive and love playing (but hate losing!) games with friends. If you are in my class, I will play some fun games with you.

Mrs C Clarke

Higher Level Teaching Assistant

My interests: I love visiting new places with my family and spending time together. I am a member of the zoo and I love the outdoors and exploring. I enjoy travelling and I am always looking for new adventures.

Interesting fact:

I have been on a camel ride in the Sahara, swam with dolphins and have been kissed by a reindeer.

Mrs J White

Teaching Assistant

My interests: I love to spend my spare time with my 3 children Millie, Peter and Teddy. The two eldest are now in high school and Teddy currently attends Meadow and is very happy. I love to go and watch mine and my boys favourite team Manchester United. I have been a TA for just over a year, Meadow being my first job and I wouldn’t change it for the world. I love to watch the children learn and grow and building special relationships with them all.

Fun fact: from the age of 5 I had a pony called “Zoe” together we won lots of gymkhanas, we were the best team and the best of friends

Mrs P Ward

Teaching Assistant

My interests: I love spending time with my family which includes my husband Lee, 2 children Jake and Mia, as well as our 4 pets: Loki, our English Cocker Spaniel, our 3 cats named Oreo, Coco and Seb. I live locally and I am sure lots of you will see me out and about, walking for miles and miles with Loki, burning off some of that Spaniel energy.

I love to bake and to swim as regularly as I can. I also love to visit the Lake District where Mia and I will walk and climb mountains with Loki.

Fun fact: in 1984, I was a runner up in a National Blue Peter competition and I received my Blue Peter badge. I had to design a garden for the International Garden Festival in Liverpool.

Mrs A Selby

Teaching Assistant

My Interests: I enjoy spending time with family and my friends, I love to cook and to travel!

My husband and I love to take our children Alice and Sebastian on adventures and to try new things, paddle boarding is our latest love!

I spend lots of time cheering on my children at jujitsu and horse riding as well as taking my dog Molly for long walks especially on the beach.

Fact about me: I have sponsored a little boy in Uganda for three years. I love to keep in touch with him and his family.
