Miss Davies:

Hi everyone, I have worked with Nursery age children for many years and love meeting new children and their families each year. In my spare time, I love to keep healthy and active by doing lots of yoga and going for long walks. I also like to read every day and my favourite book is ‘Charlotte’s Web’. I like to learn new things and to be able to share my knowledge. Did you know that a polar bear's hair is not white – it's colourless!

 My favourite place that I have been to on holiday was Mexico and I got to swim with giant sea turtles!

When I was in school my favourite subject was History. I enjoyed learning about the Romans, Alexander the Great and Genghis Khan. Before I became a teacher, my job was to make computers and check that they were working correctly.

If I wasn’t working in Nursery my other favourite job would be a sign writer and make Disney signs for people.

 

 Mrs De-Gare Pitt

   

In my spare time, I enjoy walking along the canal with my dog and spending time with my family. I enjoy baking cakes, listening to music and playing the piano (badly). I love puzzle books and doing crosswords. I like to learn new things. I have just learnt how to crochet.

My favourite place that I have been to on holiday is Egypt. I especially enjoyed snorkelling in the Red Sea and going inside the pyramid.

I love Italian food and my favourite restaurant is Zizzi. I order the Rustica Picante pizza every time I go there.

When I was in school I enjoyed running and taking part in the Town Sports competitions. My favourite subject was Music and I enjoyed composing songs. When I was young my favourite books were the ‘Chronicles of Narnia’.

I trained to be a Nursery Nurse when I left school and have worked in this school ever since I qualified. I worked in Sainsbury's whilst I was in college.

If I wasn't a teaching assistant I would like to own my own cafe somewhere on the seafront.

 

Mrs Cluer

 

In my spare time, I like to walk my dogs and enjoy looking after my animals at home. If I'm not doing that I like watching marvel movies and gardening in the nice weather.

I like eating out, especially Toby carvery, can't beat a cooked dinner.

I like going on holiday anywhere in the world, but my favourite place is going home to Portsmouth, sitting on the beach and going to the fair.

Whilst growing up I enjoyed reading Roald Dahl books and my favourite was ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’. When I was in school I loved PE and running. Rounders was my favourite game.
