The Year Two Classrooms
Our Year Two classrooms offer outstanding spaces for teaching and learning. Following the guidelines on social distancing, the classrooms have been adapted to allow children the space to become independent learners whilst meeting the needs of every individual child.
Here are just a few photographs of Tull Class and Newton Class. Please use this link: https://my.treedis.com/tour/lord-street-primary-school for a complete virtual tour of the classrooms and to see the rest of the school.
Miss Hackett came to Lord Street as a placement for my teaching assistant training and has never left! She particularly enjoys 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 Miss Hackett has achieved a foundation degree in early years and has most recently completed her final degree year with the goal of 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!
Miss Towers first visited Lord Street during her Teacher Training with the Pennine Teaching Alliance, completing her final placement in Year Two. Since then she has covered a term in Year Four in 2019, before joining us again in Class Five last September.
I am so pleased and excited to be back working at Lord Street. The first time I came here I felt such a sense of community spirit, everybody in the school is so warm and welcoming and it really does feel like one big family.
Miss Knewstubb's 21st birthday treat was to start working with us within the Key Stage One team at Lord Street.
I have loved working with the children at Lord Street. It is amazing to see the progress that they have already made and to watch them grow year on year.
Mrs Birkett has worked at Lord Street since 2016. During her time here she has become a governor for the school and her three children now also attend.
I love being part of Lord Street School and feel very passionate about helping to make a difference to children's lives and their education.
