Linford Class

In Linford Class we recognise how important the early years of school are and believe it is a privilege to have in input in these crucial developmental years. We work hard to provide an enriching and engaging environment in which children learn through a combination of adult and child led activities. As we know the important role parents play we work in close collaboration with you to ensure your child is happy and successful throughout their time in Linford.

A little bit about Mrs Hamm…

My personal passion is dancing and I have medals in ballroom and latin. My favourite dance is the Argentine Tango and I have even been known to show a few of my dance moves in assemblies when asked! In Linford class we like our learning to be fun,  inspiring and full of wow moments. We aim to help children  become caring, independent individuals who see school as a safe and exciting place to be.

A little bit about Miss Botterill…

My degree is in Art and Design and this is something I remain very interested in, in fact I can often be found with a pencil drawing at home. I like finding ways to engage children in art too and plan activities to do so in the classroom and in the clubs I run. I also really enjoy supporting small group work, particularly in writing.
