Year 4

Mr D Jones

Teacher (Japan Wednesday - Friday)

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 (Japan Monday - Wednesday)

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.

Mr J Anson

Teacher (Ghana)

My interests: My friends and family are very important to me and I like to spend my time with them. I enjoy playing football and I am also an avid Derby County supporter. I also like to keep fit and healthy by going to the gym and riding my bike. This is my second year at Meadow and I particularly enjoy teaching Maths.

A fun fact about me: Before becoming a teacher, I used to teach archery to children and adults.

Mrs L Moore

Teaching Assistant

My Interests: I love holidays ! I love planning my next adventure with my husband Carson and two boys, Matthew and Daniel. We love Greece and my ideal holiday would be sailing around the Greek Isles. Although my favourite place is near the sea, we have also had some amazing city breaks. I love reading and listening to music - all kinds of both! I enjoy going to concerts and watching football – especially at the Theatre of Dreams !! Can’t wait till we can do both again.

Fun Fact about me: When I was 13 my school held a Mastermind competition and I won! My specialist subject was The History of Wembley Stadium.

Miss A Brown

Teaching Assistant

My Interests: I’ve worked with children for over 20 years. From working in nurseries to running kids clubs abroad for Thomas Cook. For the last 10 years I’ve been working at Meadow in Dolphin club and and as a 1-2-1 teaching assistant.

I live with my Gramps, a chihuahua called Joey and 3 rescue chickens Betty, June and Pearl.

Fun fact about me: I’ve been white water rafting and swam with dolphins

3 times.

Mrs M Flint

Teaching Assistant

I have been a Teaching Assistant for nearly 10 years and have always enjoyed working with children. I have been married for 19 years and have two children: My eldest, Ben, is in year 13 and my youngest, Hannah, is in year 10. I also have a 1 year old puppy called Chloe, who is very cute and we love taking her on long walks in the forest.

My interests include, Knitting, Crochet, Painting and more recently, Diamond Art. I am very creative and am never happy unless I am making something.

I love experiencing different cultures and love to travel when I can, especially to Greece (my favourite place!). I also love to bake and cook things with my daughter. Our current favourite thing is ‘Greek Orzo Pasta with Feta Cheese’ and ‘Lemon drizzle cake’ – Yum!

Although a little rusty these days, I enjoy playing music on the violin and piano. We have just bought a piano for my daughter to learn which is also helping me to pick it up again. For fitness, I like swimming and cycling. However, my favourite sport to watch is Tennis.

A fun fact about me is that I won a bungee jump from a karaoke competition when I was 14 years old in Cyprus. I dived off a 150ft crane into the sea, what was I thinking!
