Miss Hanks loves being creative, whether this is carrying out home improvements, drawing, painting or planning fun, interactive lessons for her class. Miss Hanks is a big animal lover and she enjoys going on long dog walks with her two cocker spaniels; Ruby and Willow. She has also helped the school to fundraise and adopt pandas to raise awareness for endangered species. In her spare time, Miss Hanks can be found catching up with friends, eating Italian food and of course plenty of cake! In school, Miss Hanks enjoys teaching creative writing and science. As our science co-ordinator Miss Hanks loves to plan lessons that are child-led, practical and hands on. Watch out for the weird and wonderful experiments!
