Hello! My name is Zoe Clayton and I am the teacher in class 5. I joined Park Grove Primary this year and I am looking forward to working with all of the staff and children at the school. I am originally from Lancashire but I moved to York 3 years ago when I started my teacher training degree at York St. John University. I then decided that I love York so much that I wanted to stay and get a job in this city and I was lucky enough to get a job at Park Grove.
My aim is to make learning fun and enjoyable for every child and to create a warm and welcoming classroom in which all children want to learn and are keen to find out new things. I also like to make lessons interactive and engaging, and I especially like to take learning outdoors – particularly in the summer! I am a sporty person and I regular go to the gym as well as playing hockey and tennis – hopefully I will be able to play some of these sports with the children at Park Grove. In my spare time I also like to read and go the seaside (when the weather is nice)!
I hope you have learnt a little bit more about me. I am looking forward to working at Park Grove and meeting everyone at the school.
