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 again. I teach the class on Mondays and we do Forest School, RE and Computing, as well as Maths and English. This is my fifth year of teaching at St John's and really enjoy being a part of such a warm and friendly school. I lead RE and Forest School across too. Outside of work, I enjoy knitting and baking and I have a two year old son, who often comes with me when I visit the school on my days off!
