All About Me!

Hello my name is Eve Rodden and I am the Year 1 teacher here at Wheatley Hill Primary School. I joined Wheatley Hill in 2011 when I started teaching in the Year 2 class.

This is my first academic year in Y1 at this school but I previously taught this age group at Oxclose in Washington and a mixed Y1/2 class at Shiney Row.

I am VERY lucky this year to have moved into a brand new Y1 classroom base, which allows the children more freedom to access the continuous provision laid out by myself and Sophie McPhillips (Y1 TA). Year 1 is a FANTASTIC age to work with as the children have so many questions and are eager to explore, investigate and develop their emerging skills!

Away from school I enjoy walking my black Labrador Archie (who also enjoys visiting school occasionally!) and spending time with my friends and family. I love Northumberland and most of my holidays are spent exploring the beaches, villages and countryside in the northern most part of the county and the Scottish borders. I also enjoy baking, cross stitching and reading.

My career in schools began as a teaching assistant before I moved on to complete my PGCE to begin teaching.

I LOVE my job as each day is so different, the children are wonderful (they keep me feeling younger than I really am!) and I laugh every day at some of the things my class say – I could write a book of funny stories!

I feel very honoured to work here at Wheatley Hill with fantastically dedicated colleagues, lovely parents and, of course, FABULOUS children.

We’d love to hear from you!
