Ignasi Sole Pinas
EYFS & Primary Music
My name is Ignasi Sole, a professional cellist and conductor working as the Head of Music at Falcons Pre-Prep School for Boys, as well as Music Practitioner at Ark Schools. Currently I am undertaking my PhD in Music and Philosophy and my passion and devotion is transforming the lives of children through music.
EYFS RSHE (PSHE)
I have been a teacher for over 10 years now, in varying year groups, but this is my first year in EYFS and I love it! I love to watch the children learn through play experiences and their inquisitive nature is amazing!
I am a Primary School teacher from London and have taught in both KS1 and KS2. My favourite part of my job is having fun with my class and laughing together. I really enjoy reading or listening to audio-books and being active outside in the fresh air.
I am an Assistant Headteacher at a grammar school in Kent and have been teaching German for 13 years. As part of the national Modern Foreign Language (MFL) pedagogy project, led by the National Centre for Excellence for Language Pedagogy, I am a Specialist Teacher and lead my school’s involvement in this exciting national programme, seeking to change the way we teach MFL at KS3 to lead to higher uptake at KS4. I have lived, worked and travelled in many countries around the world through my language learning, and enjoy helping pupils start off on a similar journey of discovery of their own.
Hi! I’m Jake, I have been a science teacher in London for the past two years. I used to work at Great Ormond Street Hospital, which was a very rewarding job, but teaching is even better! Teaching science is great because it is 3 subjects in 1, there is always something else to learn - my favourite topic is DNA! Before/after school you can find me doing various sports including cycling, climbing and squash. I also enjoy cooking and baking when I have time.
For the past 13 years I have worked as a geography teacher at a variety of different schools across the UK. This has actually been my last year teaching as I am now leaving the profession to run a charity called MYTime Young Carers. I absolutely love teaching and the challenge of making complex topics accessible and easy to understand. I will definitely miss the classroom but I feel lucky that my new role will still mean I can spend time working with amazing children.
EYFS & Primary Music
I am currently a Primary Music teacher working in South London. I love working with all primary children, right from the age of 3-11. I often find myself learning as much from them as they do me. My absolute favourite part of the job is watching children grow and find their confidence and expression, which impacts on all areas of the curriculum. Outside of work, I love going for walks in the countryside and spending time with my beloved cats - Branston and Pickle.
Hallo! I am Head of Languages at a school in Hertfordshire, just north of London and have been teaching German and French since before you were born! I love all languages but particularly German. I fell in love with Germany where I lived for a year with a German family in Bavaria. German is such a logical and slightly amusing language as you will soon see. I am really looking forward to teaching you and hope you become an avid fan of this wonderfully diverse country and the people who live there. Bis bald!
My name is Charu and I am a specialist Computing Teacher in a three-form entry school in High Wycombe. I teach all year groups, I particularly enjoy teaching mouse manoeuvre skills to Year 1 and Year 2 as that age group is from a touch screen era. I love the way digital tools can further enhance the learning experiences for students and get them ready for digital life ahead. When I am not teaching, I enjoy listening to music, doing yoga and going for long walks. I love spending time and making memories with my two teenage boys.
Hello! I’m Ms Webster and I am a Deputy Headteacher at an inner London primary school. I love teaching because I get to interact with young people who surprise and inspire me every day. Outside of school, I enjoy walking my dog, Lenny (who is our school dog) in London’s parks; practising my yoga skills and planning my next trip abroad (travelling around India, Mexico and Vietnam have been recent highlights).
