For our reception pupils, it is our priority for children to learn and love to read.  As well as the daily systematic synthetic phonics lessons being delivered your child will also engage in three small group reading practise sessions every week.  I have placed some useful links below, the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds phonics programme link offers parental support from pronunciation to letter formation mnemonics. Love my Books gives access to some superb and current online texts for you to share with your children which will help promote the love of reading.  You are able to access the Big Cat home page from the link below and using your unique log in details access your child's allocated reading book for the following week.  We allocate a new ebook every Friday (this book will be one your child is familiar with) for your child to read to you and continue to practise over the week.

After reading the book Stick Man by Julia Donaldson, EYFS visited forest school and collected sticks (along with jumping and sliding in lots of mud!).  Class 2  showcased their magnificent art work !

Miss Hird - Class 1 teacher (EYFS leader)

I have worked in Early Years for over a decade and been a teacher at Lord Street for 8 years.  The Early Years is a distinct and important phase in education and a crucial time for developing children's enjoyment of learning, their engagement and motivation.  My main aim is to have a class full of happy and busy children!  As you can see from my photo I love the outdoors and enjoy running and walking with my family, this love of outdoors is also reflected in my practise at school.  I enjoy coaching a local children's fell running team one evening a week.

Miss Hartley – Class 1 Early Years Practitioner

I have two children who attend Lord Street Primary School.

I started as a student in 2017, after qualifying as a Level 2 Teaching Assistant, I was keen to stay with Lord Street Primary School as a volunteer.

I worked across KS1 to gain more experience, I did this for 3 years. I started as a Welfare Assistant in 2019 and in October 2020 I started as a Teaching Assistant in class 1.

I enjoy seeing how much all the children thrive, including my own children, I'm also overwhelmed by all the support I have been given as a parent and a member of the team.


Mrs Clamp -

Early Years Practitioner



I have been at lord street primary for over 13 years, I volunteered in year 5 when my boys started school at Lord Street, then 6 months later was employed to support children with additional needs. 
I have experience of working in both KS1 and KS2 and this year I am excited to be working as part of the EYFS team.  My role is fluid across class 1 and 2, as well as being an early years practitioner  I run bespoke interventions, and a dialogic reading group.


Miss Scholes - Class 2 Teacher

I joined the Lord Street team in 2016 as a volunteer.  My role developed as a teaching assistant in EYFS and later on to deliver a reading intervention programme in KS1.  Since 2018 I have worked as a teacher in Reception, and have over 14 years' experience of working in the Early Years.   I love to work with young children, nurturing their curiosity and helping them to make sense of the world around them. 


Miss Hackett - Class 2 Early Years Practitioner

I came to Lord Street as a placement for my teaching assistant training and have never left!  I particularly enjoy seeing the holistic progress that our children make, whether it's a child's excitement at reading their first book, pride in accomplishing their own goals or watching them developing friendships.  

Whilst working in the EYFS I have achieved a foundation degree in early years and I am currently completing my final degree year with the goal of then continuing to do a PGCE to become a teacher.

As a child my ambition was to be either a mum or a teacher.  Luckily I get to be both!
