I am Mr Robinson and I am delighted to have joined the Highwood community. I have many years of experience teaching across KS2, though my passion lies with teaching years 5 and 6. The final years of primary school are incredibly important and it is always fantastic to see the children grow and develop in terms of maturity and independence, preparing them for the adventures ahead at secondary school and beyond.
Within the classroom, I love teaching both Maths and English (especially creative writing) though my greatest love will always be sports and PE. I am always keen to help children develop their physical skills as well as their academic ones. To me, that is just as important. Indeed, outside of the classroom, I can often be found playing tag rugby, golf or sometimes going for a run. Although I do love a good book too. I am a huge Harry Potter and Alex Rider fan!
I am Miss Bicheno and after spending the first part of this year travelling in South America, I am excited to be returning to the classroom as part of the Year 6 team. I’m really looking forward to this new challenge after a few years of teaching Year 3. I love learning and one of my favourite parts about being a teacher is that I get to learn (and laugh) alongside the children in my class. I also love watching the children I teach grow and develop as learners and individuals – especially as they get ready to make the transition to secondary school.
When I’m not at school I can often be found reading a book – you’ll have to come and ask me what some of my current favourites are or recommend me one of yours! I am very passionate about supporting all children to develop a lifelong love of reading. I’m also a very active person and love running, swimming and going to fitness classes. Another passion of mine which I try and share with my class as much as possible is learning languages – it’s a great way to challenge yourself and meet new people!
