Mrs Bateman: a.m.a
Why did you decide to be a teacher?
I decided to be a teacher after working as a volunteer with George Grenville Academy and realising how much I liked being with all the pupils and staff.
Is being a teacher like you thought it would be?
Being a teacher is much harder than I thought it would be, but I love that every day is completely different.
What lessons do you enjoy teaching most?
I love teaching Art and Philosophy for Children the most.
If you weren't teaching, what would your dream job be?
I'd love to be a costume designer.
What was your favourite subject at school?
My favourite subjects were Art and French.
What were you told off for at school?
I was told off for throwing work away if I wasn't happy with it.
Year 4 have been developing their artisic skills by working on markmaking - individually and as a collaborative group. Ofsted said: "In a key stage 2 art lesson, the class teacher’s careful explanations of different artistic techniques enabled pupils to broaden their skills in the creative use of pastels. Pupils worked together to create a dramatic frieze of galaxies, stars and planets."
