Peer Support Teacher
Michelle Saunders - Hunton and Arrathorne Community Primary School
Early Years Foundation Stage and Year 1 Class Teacher
Specialism - EYFS
Michelle teaches a mixed age class of EYFS and Year 1 children in a small village school.
She is a passionate believer in using play as a vehicle to learn through. By exploiting an open ended environment, children of all ages are given access to play based learning and are encouraged to apply the skills they have been taught in discreet subject specific sessions. She creates a culture of independence and curiosity amongst children both inside and outside of the classroom.
She has successfully developed routines and systems to enable the 2 curriculums (EYFS and NC) to work together.
