Year 4

Mr D Jones

Teacher (Japan)

My interests: I enjoy spending my free time with family and friends, preferably on a beach surrounded by mountains of food and drink. When I’m not watching ‘Paw Patrol’ or ‘Peppa Pig’ with my young son and daughter, I love watching sport #YNWA. Despite living in Liverpool since I was 18 years of age, I have been part of the Meadow family for over 12 years. The brilliant staff, supportive parents and wonderful children make it a difficult place to leave.

A fun fact about me: I was born and raised in Porthmadog, North Wales. I only really spoke welsh in my teenage years but now having married a Liverpudlian, I’m quickly developing a scouse twang.

Mrs S Walker

Teacher (Ghana)

My interests: I love spending time with my family and watching my two sons playing football and taking part in athletics. My family love to go in the hot tub together in the evenings and especially at weekends to talk about our day. My hobbies include swimming and travelling around the world. When I was younger, I became a certified diver. Although I trained to dive in the sea and quarries around North Wales, I have also dived in the Great Barrier Reef, Belize and the Bahamas.

A fun fact about me: I started teaching at Meadow in 2000 but left for three years to travel around South America, Central America and the USA. I then spent a year teaching in Shanghai in China and six months in Istanbul in Turkey before returning to Meadow.

Mrs S Phillips

Teacher (Ghana)

My interests: I love spending time with my family and friends. As a family, my four daughters, husband and I enjoy swimming and going camping. We also love trips to the beach, whatever the weather! I love music, especially live performances, and enjoy going to concerts when I can. I also love live comedy. Another pastime of mine is reading; I always have a book on the go!

A fun fact about me: I once jumped out of a plane and did tandem skydiving! This was a birthday gift off my brother and was an exhilarating experience!

Mrs J Spencer

Teacher (Currently on maternity leave)

Mrs P Stretch

Teaching Assistant (Ghana/ Japan)

My interests: I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. As a family, we love the outdoors especially cycling. I would like to cycle from John O' Groats to Lands' End in the future.

I have a rescue dog called Charlie, a cockatiel called Marley and lots of tropical fish. I also volunteer as a dog walker for an animal rescue centre which is something I love doing and often want to take all the dogs home with me.

I love shoes and everything vintage. I enjoy vintage fairs and once saw Bargain Hunt being filmed at one. I pop up in the background quite a few times during the program.

Fun fact about me: I have a Guinness World Record for the most people headbanging simultaneously.

Miss S Wardle

Teaching Assistant (Ghana)

My interests: I enjoy being outdoors. Especially allowing the wind to blow through my hair riding my horse Merlin. Merlin was rescued as a family pet when he was born and has given me many happy memories since owning him.

I have been a teaching assistant since I was 17 and couldn’t think of a better job to have!

Fun fact about me:

My most embarrassing moment was whilst shopping, I ran behind an old lady and slam dunked my shopping in her trolly thinking it was my nan. My face was as red as a tomato!

Mrs L Stewart

Teaching Assistant (Ghana)

My interests: I love spending time with my family of a weekend and catching up with friends. I enjoy nature and being outside and I also like doing my bit to help the environment by being eco friendly. My happy place is baking a nice cake in the kitchen and then eating it all up. I read lots of books and like to watch environmental documentaries.

Fun fact about me: I was born with bright red hair so my sister said I looked like an orangutan as a baby.
