Mrs Gray is the teacher on Wednesday PM, Thursday and Friday
My name is Mrs Kitching, I grew up in Leeds but have lived in York for the last 22 years. I live with my husband and two sons who are 18 and 15. I’ve been a teacher for 25 years and have worked mainly in KS1 and foundation stage in schools in Leeds and Wakefield.
I love working with the youngest children in school. It is great to see them develop in so many ways as they grow in confidence and explore the nursery areas. I love it when children begin to feel comfortable to share their ideas and experiences and chat happily about what they have enjoyed. As a nursery teacher I often see the excitement and wonder on the children’s faces when they find out something new or feel proud having achieved something for the first time and that’s what makes it so special .
Hello, my name is Mrs Gray and I will be teaching in Nursery this year. I love teaching in Nursery as we get to do lots of fun and exciting things such as digging in the sand, playing outside and story telling. My favourite thing to do is reading stories to you all and acting them out afterwards. I have two little boys at home and my eldest is starting in Nursery this year too at a different school. I love teaching at Westwood school as it’s a happy, bubbly place to be. I’m sure you will love it! I cannot wait to meet you all.
