Year 5

Mr Farrell

Year 5 Teacher

Teaching in many different countries around the world I have developed a real taste for Geography and love the topics that we will be studying in year 5 this year. I can't wait to get cooking this year, especially when we are focusing on Indian culture. I studied History and psychology before turning towards teaching many years ago. In my spare time I like to read, play guitar and play Gaelic (Irish) football.

Miss Leek

Year 5 Teacher

I’m Miss Leek and I joined Waycroft Academy in 2019, previously to this I’d been teaching in one of our other MAT schools (Woodlands Academy) since 2014. Before Woodlands, I spent my time teaching at two different primary schools in South Gloucestershire, starting my teaching career in 2009. I trained to be a teacher in Manchester and was lucky enough to spend some of my time at university, teaching and studying in Boston, America.
I love teaching and watching children develop and grow into successful learners, enthused and hungry to improve their learning. I am committed to encouraging children to become more independent and self-sufficient; wherever possible, I want the pupils in my care to make choices about where their learning takes them.
In my spare time I very much enjoy running and have taken part in several half marathons. Running a full marathon is my next goal! I also like spending time with my friends and family and spend my holidays travelling.
