Favourite Song: Happy by Pharell Williams - It's one of those songs where you just can't stop yourself from smiling when you hear it.

Hobbies: Out of school I'm pretty much a chauffeur to 3 sporty teens. If I'm not spectating at a tumbling comp, it will be a netball match or CrossFit box or rowing regatta.

Did you know Mrs Dyson is an author - I have read all 3 of her books and can't wait for more!

Mrs Child

Favourite Subject: Maths! I love maths and

the links it has to the world around us, it

can be exciting and fascinating if you just

look a little closer.  
Favourite Book: We’re going on a Bear hunt

by Michael Rosen. This story allows you to

get creative and imaginative. I love to put

actions to the story and make it my own. My little boy also loves this story and you will often hear and find us going on bear hunts of our own. 
Favourite Author: Julia Donaldson! I read all her stories to my children at home. 
Favourite Song: baa baa black sheep. As an early years teacher, I have found this song to be one that many children adore and love to perform. It is always a pleasure to see the pride children have after completing their performance.  
Hobbies: I love to be creative and I enjoy getting crafty when I get the opportunity. I also enjoy going on walks and admiring the beautiful places around us.

There’s so much to see and understand in our

In UFS we provide a safe, nurturing and creative environment where your children can flourish and grow into independent young learners, ready for the next stage of their school journey.

We are proud to have produced an environment in which children can thrive in their learning with plentiful activities on offer, carefully designed to promote discovery and application of skills in an exciting way linked to our topics.
