Mrs. Woods - English Subject Adviser


My name is Mrs. Woods and I teach Class 3 and Year 3 groups. I am Subject Adviser for English. I gained my PGCE at Liverpool Hope University and have worked in Halton for over ten years across the primary age range. Prior to attaining my PGCE I graduated from Open University with a Masters Degree in Education and I also worked for 6 years at the National Foundation of Educational Research as a Research Officer focusing on assessment specifically in KS2 English.

I am particularly passionate about the importance of English in schools and especially the power of reading. I am an avid reader and want to ensure that a love of reading spreads across the school and the children of St. Bede’s. If I haven’t read it then it’s not worth reading! Teaching is such a wonderful job to have and I love every day that I spend at St. Bede’s Catholic Junior School.

As part of my role, I run weekly reading clubs, monthly reading coffee mornings that parents and carers are invited too (with a book swap too!). Regular book recommdations, reviews and competitions are also held to promote the love of English and reading throughout school. Recently, I have also set up a book swap for staff too!
