Goring Church of England (Aided) Primary School


Hello and welcome to Puffin Class! 

My name is Mrs Whittaker and I am going to be your teacher.  I am really looking forward to a wonderful year in our classroom! Our teaching assistant will be the lovely Mrs Christodoulou.

In Puffin class, I encourage all children to be happy, confident and independent learners.  I like all the children to try their best at ALL times, to be kind, helpful and resilient, and to keep our classroom neat and tidy. I love to read, and I would like all the children in my class to love books and reading as much as I do.

There is a lot to look forward to in Year 4! We have some very exciting topics. To kick-start we are learning about the Ancient Egyptians in our topic, ‘Walk Like an Egyptian’. In the autumn term we also get to go on a residential visit to Lodge Hill Activity Centre, which will be a fantastic way for you to bond as a team and overcome challenges in a supportive and fun environment – plus, the food is awesome! At Christmas, our year group leads the carol service at the Church.

In the spring term will also put on a musical production, which you will perform to the school and your parents and carers at the Church Hall.

What an exciting year we will have! I look forward to finding out all about you, and I can’t wait to start our learning adventure together!
