We have had a super first week back, the children have enjoyed getting to know their teachers and new classmates. Learning started straight away for the students, please see some pictures below.
Meet just some of our fabulous class teachers. 
Miss Kirsty Maddison - Reception Teacher

My name is Kirsty and I am the Pre-Reception and Reception Class teacher. I have just started at La Garenne after moving from the UK and I am really excited to be here! I am looking forward to meeting many new children and staff and to having a go at skiing when the snow comes. I also enjoy walking and music.

Miss Samantha Burnham - Year 3 & 4 Teacher
Hello! My name is Samantha and I am the Year 3 & 4 class teacher. I have been at La Garenne for 4 Years and I am also responsible for helping with Child Protection and the Safeguarding of Children. I love the mountains especially the sports! In the summer you will find me on my mountain bike or in a lake and in the winter I'll be skiing. We have a very exciting term ahead filled with lots of fun Maths, English and Science but I am especially excited to be teaching our IPC topic, Active Planet, where we will be learning all about how the Earth was formed and the Geography behind our landscape and how these mountains were formed.

Miss Jenny Hankin - Year 5 Teacher
I am the Year 5 teacher and this is my fourth year teaching at La Garenne, and my second year teaching in Year 5. I am responsible for teaching the children maths, literacy, IPC and science and will be taking the PET Cambridge English lessons this academic year.
I am looking forward to teaching Literacy this year because we have some really great books to read and write about, and I am also looking forward to the Year 5 residential trip with my class and working with all the minis and their teachers for the next end of year show!
Aside from my teaching, I really enjoy music and play the violin, clarinet, saxophone and a little piano. I also really love swimming, skiing and reading in my spare time!
