Teachers - Alison Downing

Teaching Assistant - Clair O'Brien

Hi I’m Alison Downing and I’m really excited about teaching in Year 1 at Trenance Learning Academy.

I absolutely love my job and have been teaching for 24 years! The best thing about being a teacher is seeing the progress children make and teaching children how to read and write.

When I’m not at school you’ll find me cheering on my boys on the football pitch, watching them surf or walking my dog. I enjoy going to Zumba and going camping and exploring new places. I love going abroad and one of my favourite places is Italy.

This term Year 1’s topic is ‘Deep in the Woods’ and we are going to be outside a lot learning about plants, trees and mini-beasts.
