Hello! My name is Mrs Kuffour and I am the Senior Teacher at The Meadows. I also have the privilege of teaching children in Year 5 and 6, which I have been doing for the past 5 years.
In my spare time, I really enjoying singing (often in the classroom too)! I love all types of music, particularly pop and rock and really enjoy going to concerts. My favourite one recently was to see Ed Sheeran who was amazing. I always like sharing book recommendations with my friends and colleagues (particularly Miss Parry although she doesn't always get around to finishing them) and I enjoy reading fantasy stories - anything set in a different world. I also love drama (some say that I am a little dramatic) and enjoy watching shows at the theatre. As a result one of my favourite things about teaching in Class 4, apart from working with the amazing children, is organising our end of year play. In the past we have done Matilda the Musical, Mary Poppins, Shrek, The Wizard of Oz, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory etc. I'm already thing of what we might do this year children!
Hello! My name is Mrs Magee and I am the teaching assistant in Class 4. I have worked closely with Mrs Kuffour working with the children in Year 5 and 6 where every day brings new challenges and lots of fun! I am really lucky, as a HLTA, that I get to cover management time and PPA throughout the school. This enables me to work and get to know all the children and see how they develop and progress in their education over the years.
I have two grown children who used to attend The Meadows which makes me feel very old!
In my spare time I enjoy reading (historical novels), walking (with my two dogs Fagin and Stig) and eating out. As I enjoy eating out, I also 'love' attending exercise classes such as boxercise. I have recently purchased a VW camper and have been bitten by the camping and travelling bug too.
Hello! My name is Mrs Jones. I have worked at The Meadows for over two years as a learning support assistant. This is my first year working in Class 4 and I am very excited about the new experiences I will be facing.
In my spare time I like walking with my two dogs: Poppy (the crazing Airedale who I have always got a story to tell about her antics) and Mia the miniature Schnauzer (poppy's sidekick). I also like to spend my holidays travelling abroad and visiting my second home in Spain.
I also adore flamingos!
I'm Mrs Panagi and have been working at the Meadows for the past twelve months. I began supporting children within Class 3 and 2 last year, but this year I am looking forward to the challenges of working in Class 4 (though you may see me popping up in a few other classrooms over the year)! In my free time, I follow the Moto GP, spend time with my husband and two children (as well as our dog, Barny). I also love exploring new foods and bringing in many treats for the staff... To combat this, I enjoy swimming and attending exercise classes. My other love is Stereophonics!
