Hello I am Mrs Downes.
From the age of five, I told anyone who would listen that when I grew up I wanted to be the Prime Minister and a Teacher – so I’m halfway to fulfilling my childhood ambitions! I’ve had the pleasure of teaching children from Reception through to KS2 and am driven to make learning as natural and enjoyable as possible. For me, a day has been a success if the children go home tired from all the effort they have put in and looking forward to the next day at school. I’m a creative and practical person, so I like to spend my time drawing, writing, cooking and gardening – when I’m not running around after my family, that is!
