Year 5

Kate Foster

I am excited to be teaching Year 5 this year alongside Mrs Bettles. I will teach Tuesday-Friday. I taught for many years across Key Stage 2 in a large school in East Sussex prior to moving to SJM in 2021. I am really enjoying working somewhere slightly smaller with such a lovely community feel. My passions in teaching include reading, Maths and PE. Outside work, I enjoy spending time with my family, playing at the beach, going for walks on the Downs and camping. I also play netball for a local club.

I am so thrilled to be teaching in Year 5 alongside Mrs Foster. I teach the class on Mondays and we do Forest School, RE and Computing, as well as Maths and English. I joined St John's in 2019 after teaching for 6 years in a larger school in Sussex. I have taught at St John's for 4 years now and really enjoy being a part of such a warm and friendly school. I also have the pleasure of teaching all of the other classes for Forest School too!
