Miss Gilham

Hello and welcome to Reception,

I am Miss Gilham and I am very excited to be moving year groups into Reception.

For the past year I have had the joy of teaching in Nursery at Etchells, so I already know a lot of the children coming into Reception. Prior to this, I have worked in year 2 at Etchells and within EYFS in St Anthony’s Primary School. Early Years is where I feel my passion lies and I can spark the imagination, interests and drive for children to learn within a creative curriculum. I am going into my 5th year of teaching and I am now subject lead of Geography, which has strong links to outdoor learning, so this year I am going to focus lots on taking learning outdoors wherever possible.

We have lots of fun in Reception, exploring and learning through everything we do. The children think and talk about what they would like to do and learn about. We then work together to plan around their ideas... such an exciting way to learn! This year I am working alongside the wonderful Mrs Revill (the other Reception class teacher). The lovely Mrs Rae is our full time teaching assistant who has years of experience working in Reception. We also have Mrs Adams and Mrs French working in the other Reception class, I feel very lucky to be working within such a fantastic team!

My hobbies are running and keeping fit (when I have time!). I also like to be creative wherever possible, this normally involves decorating/furnishing my house. I am a big Pintrest fan, which can be quite time consuming but feeds a lot of my creativity in the classroom! I love to spend time with the girls when I can, enjoying meals out, nights in and the occasional day trip. Other than that my little girl keeps me very busy!

I feel very fortunate to be working in Reception with our youngest children and within such a wonderful team.  I hope to have such a positive influence towards the beginning of their educational journeys.

Our class page will be updated with the things we are doing in class and ideas for what you can do at home too. Also look out for our class stories found on ‘Dojos’ for regular updates on what our class is learning about.

Remember if you have anything you would like to discuss with me please feel free to come and see me any evening after school, my door is always open.
