Hello! My name is Mrs Jackson and I am the KS1 teacher here at Christ Church.

I am really lucky because I get to teach both Y1 and Y2!

I love teaching KS1 because it is where children learn the foundation skills that they will use for the rest of their lives.

We have some brilliant topics in KS1 – full of interesting facts and amazing discoveries! I believe that learning should be fun and exciting, and I always like to make learning relatable for the children.    

I love adventures and have been to visit many different countries including France, Peru, India, Scotland and New Zealand! I really enjoy meeting new people and seeing new things and I think traveling is a wonderful way of doing this. I have been very lucky and seen some incredible things on my travels. Have you been anywhere exciting on holiday in the past?

I also love challenges. I once swam all the way to France; I have walked for 5 whole days in the Andes Mountains to find a town built over 500 years ago called Machu Picchu; and I have also spent time volunteering in India working in a school with very young children.

What do you like to do? Have you been setting yourself any challenges? The past year has been pretty challenging on its own!   

I love animals and have a dog called Elsie. She is 4 years old and has the softest ears in the world! She loves long walks and running around with other dogs – which works out well for me because I love walking too! We often go out on a big walk on Saturday mornings and she finds lots of doggy friends to play with. She also loves chasing tennis balls… but if they go into water, she won’t get them – so I often getting very wet feet!
