Teacher - Mr Adam Downs
My favourite books are East of Eden, The Grapes of Wrath and anything Potter! I have lots of films that I really like including the Batman trilogy, Jurassic Park and I will NEVER miss Cool Runnings if it’s on TV. My favourite sport is football and I support the best team in the world, which is obviously Tottenham Hotspur.

Hi! I'm Miss Rogers and I have the pleasure of working with Mr Downs in Hawk Owls (Year 6). I have been working at Winterton Junior School since February 2014. I spend a lot of my spare time with my family, friends and my three dogs (Sky, Star and Autumn). When I'm not spending time with them, I enjoy listening to music, watching films and watching Manchester United play football (even if I do get a little over excited when I watch them), I have also just started my first year at university. My favourite subjects have to be, Maths, Art and R.E, but all subjects at Winterton Junior School are great!!

* Recreate a Mayan mask.
* Use clay to recreate Mayan art and artefacts.
* Explore and recreate the Bonampak murals.

We recently came back from our annual trip to Robinwood. Every child was an exceptional example of good behaviour and manners. I’m sure you’ll agree that they have gained a lot from the experience, and we can already see them working much better together! From the Giant Swing to Trapeze, our children challenged themselves and achieved more than we could have imagined. Well done Year Six!
