Oak Class 2017 - 2018

Ms Marsden

When I am not busy at school, I like to be busy at home and enjoying the company of my two lovely children and two lively dogs - Molly the collie, and Willow the Jack Russel. Willow is in the picture with me.
I love to be outdoors, whether it is in my garden growing our fruit and veg or hiking and exploring the Peak District. I am a keen rugby fan, and as well as supporting my son who plays for Crewe and Nantwich, we follow Sale Sharks too. I also get very excited about going to live music gigs and festivals!

If you are not willing to learn, no one can help you.

If you are determined to learn, no one can stop you.


So here we are, at the final stage in your primary education! Well done for making it this far!

Our class is all about being curious, being keen and being conscientious. This is an amazing time when you are growing and becoming more independent, developing your strengths and understanding how you can help yourselves learn. It will be hard work and there will be plenty of fun too.
