Miss Stancer is our class teacher. She has a pet tortoise called Martha and a Ragdoll cat called Winnie. She is a massive Manchester United fan and has a very large collection of Disney films! She likes to go shopping with her family and eating
out with close friends. She is getting married next year, so is very busy planning her Autumn 2020 wedding!
Miss Stancer is fun, caring, bubbly and kind, and encourages us to try our best and dream big!
We are a mixed year 1 and year 2 class, and we love to learn and have fun. We have very positive attitudes towards learning and embrace new learning experiences and challenges! We never give up even when something can seem tricky, you will often hear us saying "we can't do it YET" or "just keep trying". We are very hardworking, always trying our best, and understand mistakes are part of learning. We work collaboratively when working in groups or with a partner ; we love to share our learning, ideas and experiences with each other. We are kind, caring and thoughtful friends, looking out for one another and comforting each other if we are feeling sad or hurt.
