Rainbow 2 PE lesson is on Thursday afternoon - don't forget your kit!
Hello, my name is William Vaughan and I started working at Stokesay in Setember2017. I teach in Nursery and work closely with Millie, Miss Pinches, Mrs Layton and Mrs Winter, as part of the EYFS team.
I enjoy coming to school each day to work with happy and enthusiastic children. I also teach in a couple of other classes so that I can learn from and teach a range of different year groups.
Miss McKnight (Millie) was a pupil herself at Stokesay and has continued this term in her role as a Nursery TA working mainly with Miss Pinches in Rainbow 1 but also with Mrs Richards and Mrs Layton in Reception when there are no Nursery sessions. This dual role means Miss McKnight is able to support children's transition as they move from Nursery to Reception and she helps to provide continuity and familiarity at this time. Miss McKnight also leads the weekly STAY and PLAY session on a Thursday afternoon, open to all pre-school children and parents, ably assisted by Mrs Nicky Zanff.
Meet the Staff in the Rainbow Unit
Miss Pinches, Reception Teacher
Hello, my name is Kadie Pinches. I am the Reception/Year 1 teacher in the Early Years Foundation Stage, working closely with Mrs Layton and Mrs Winter, aswell as Mr Vaughan and Millie. I have a role coordinator for PHSE and RE. I joined Stokesay in September 2015 and am thoroughly enjoying this new experience and the friendly welcome from staff, children and parents that I have had.
Mrs Layton has worked at Stokesay for many years and has valuable experience with the 3-5 age group. She is full of good suggestions and really enjoys working with children. Mrs Layton works mainly with Mrs Richards and Rainbow 2 class but enjoys helping both Mrs Richards and Miss Pinches to deliver a fun, exciting and creative EYFS curriculum along with Miss McKnight (Millie). Mrs Layton also supports children with speech and language needs across KS1 using a programme called ELKLAN for which she has received specialist training.
Mrs Winter is part of the team, joining Rainbow 2 in September 2017 (but having worked in the Newton Building for many years now)
