Welcome to Churchill Class
Hello, my name is Mrs Saunders and I teach Churchill Class. I started working at Sandhurst Primary School in January 2012, teaching the year 4/5 class. Currently, I am in my fourth year of teaching the year 5/6 class and I really enjoy helping to prepare the children for secondary school. I am incredibly lucky to work in such a friendly, nurturing and supportive school and have loved the past six years. PE is my specialism and I thoroughly enjoyed being PE and Sport Co-ordinator for four years before passing the baton to Miss Weeks two years ago. I still teach PE, each week, to all of Key Stage 2 (alongside My Digby).
For the past three-and-a-half years, I have been Assistant Headteacher with responsibility for Learning and Teaching. I love visiting all the classes across the school and organising whole school events. One of my favourite weeks of the year is Book Week. Each year we have a different theme; this year was “storybook bears” and I got to dress up as Paddington Bear!
As the year 6 teacher, I am also responsible for the annual leavers’ production. Every year I am left amazed and in awe of our children’s incredible talents and I feel privileged to be able to provide a platform for them to showcase these.
A message from Mrs Pask.
Hello, my name is Mrs Pask and I will be covering Mrs Saunders’s maternity leave in Churchill Class. It is an absolute pleasure to teach the children in Churchill Class: they are engaged, enthusiastic and show great perseverance when challenged. I have also joined the SLT and taken on subject leadership at Sandhurst.
I am an experienced teacher and have taught in KS1 and KS2 year groups.
I believe children learn when they are happy and feel secure. All children are individuals and everyone learns in their own unique way. I use multiple methods of teaching (visual, auditory and kinaesthetic) to provide for the needs of every child in my classroom. I also like to use songs and games as inspiration for learning. The children are challenged daily, with lateral thinking questions and daily mind breaks, to keep us all engaged. I believe in a growth mindset and enjoy watching the children develop this in school.
I am very much looking forward to my time here at Sandhurst.
