All about me! Miss Whitehouse

Hello, I’m Miss Whitehouse and  I will be teaching year 4 on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesdays from September. Our class will be Nansledan school’s first ever Brunel class, and I think we can show just the same resilience and excellence as Brunel himself.

I am really looking forward to the year ahead and we have got lots of exciting trips, visitors, projects and WOW moments lined up for you all. And we can’t forget about the much anticipated year 4 residential! Brunel class and Trevithick class will work closely together with our projects and there will be lots of opportunities for collaborative learning linking to our STEAM curriculum.

Here are a few facts about me:

  •         Favourite colour: Green
  •         Favourite animal: Gorilla
  •         Favourite beach: Little Fistral
  •         Favourite book: Kensuke’s Kingdom
  •         Favourite subjects: Maths and DT

Fun Fact: When I was in primary school I HATED Maths. I then had a great teacher and now it is my favourite subject to teach. I like to make every lesson fun and engaging so that the children I teach will never dislike Maths like I once did.
