Teacher - Miss Stacey Melding
Bonjour! Guten Tag! Hola! Buongiorno! and (last but not least) Hello!
I’m Miss Melding, class teacher for Year 3 Elf Owls class. Along with Mrs Barker (our lovely teaching assistant), I would like to wish you all a warm welcome to our class page.
In Elf Owls, we are looking forward to an exciting year of hard work and new challenges, showing an amazing attitude and extreme effort along the way.
Along with Maths and English, this term we are going to be excavating the Ancient Egyptians: learning to locate Egypt using an atlas; discovering Tutankhamun alongside Howard Carter; studying the art of writing in Hieroglyphics and delving into the depths of Ancient Egyptian beliefs (including mummification!).
Science will see us studying Forces and Motion, where we will be learning about the context of pushing and pulling as well as working scientifically and collaboratively to investigate friction.
All in all, 2017/18 looks set to be a jam-packed, hard-working, fun-filled year in Elf Owls class (and that’s just the Autumn Term!)
Finally, just to further introduce myself to those who don’t already know me, this will be my eighth year working at Winterton Junior School and I am proud to be able to say that I work at not just a ‘Good’ school, but a GREAT school - the whole staff and children make it what it is!
As well as being class teacher for Elf Owls, I am also the Assistant Head teacher and Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo). My favourite lessons to teach are English, Topic and Science but I also absolutely love learning new languages so I especially look forward to French day each year.
Outside of school, I like to spend my time relaxing at home with my three cats (Pixie, Tink and Bob); getting stuck into a good book; going to new places or going shopping! I’m also a massive sports fan and like to watch lots of different sports, but my favourites to watch are football, rugby union and rugby league.
Don’t forget, if you spot me around school, come and say ’Hello!’ and try to make me smile!
Topic Of The Term!
Who were they? When did they live? Where is Egypt? Who was Tutankhamun? What is mummification? Some of the many questions that Elf Owls will be able to answer at the end of our topic this Autumn term as we explore and excavate the secrets of Ancient Egypt.
