Welcome to Hazel Class!
Well, after a very strange end to your time in year two, we do hope that you are all excited and eager to start your time in year 3 in Hazel Class! We are really looking forward to things getting back to normal and to start learning in school again!
Our year is going to start with us exploring where we live and comparing it to other places in Europe. We will also be developing our drawing skills by looking at the work of illustrators. In science, we will learning about animals, skeletons and how to stay healthy. In DT, we will be using our sewing skills to create a fabric Christmas tree decoration. We are going to be very busy!
In Hazel Class, you have two teachers and one teaching assistant. We work as a team so if you have any problems or need anything at all then do not hesitate to contact us.
I am very excited to see you all in September.
Hello! My name is Mr Preston.
A few facts about me!
I have been a Teacher since 1999! I have taught in England, Wales, America, Qatar, Australia and Thailand.
I have three children, Bill going into Year 8 at Clitheroe grammar, Eliza going into Year 6 at St Augustine's and Joseph who is also going into year 3 at St Michael and St Johns in Clitheroe.
I am a keen cyclist- in fact so keen I ride to work everyday from Clitheroe! Rain or shine! I ride a mountain bike and especially love night riding on the hills around our area! (I have powerful lights on my handlebars and helmet and also eat my body weight in carrots every week!)
Facts that not many people know about me.
I have about 50 bonsai trees in my garden and on my allotment! I was the national wakeboard champion of Qatar in 2001!!!
Who'd have known eh !
I love teaching and am so very looking forward to teaching you in Hazel.
Your Teaching Assistant
I will be your teaching assistant and looking forward to working with you all. I missed you all at transition and would have loved to find out all about you.
I live with my son and my cat Izzy. Callum is 20 years old and is studying biomedical sciences at university in Lancaster. I also have a daughter called Amber, she is 21 years old and is finishing her studies to be a veterinary nurse. My cat, Izzy, is a long-haired black and white cat. She is 2 years old soon, and very mischievous but also very loving when she’s caught.
I enjoy running and long walks.
I am looking forward to seeing you all in September.
