Ms Alys Mary Bendon

Year 4A Teacher
BA Hons with QTS – Initial Teacher Training (Primary) St Mary’s University College, University of Surrey
I have been teaching for 13 years in England. I have taught in every Key Stage, including in Reception but I am currently teaching in Year 5. I have enjoyed every year I’ve taught but my three years in Year 4 were particularly special. I studied to be a teacher in London and worked there for two years before moving to teach in Bristol. I specialised in English and Drama and these are my favourite subjects to teach. I love to plan creative and challenging lessons for all. I grew up by the sea and I have two brothers and a sister. I love being an aunty to my three nieces and three nephews. I have a cat called Sirius, who is staying with a friend in England. I have lived in Bristol, in the South West of England for eleven years and have lots of friends still there. I love to go to the theatre to see plays and musicals. When I was younger, I also enjoyed acting; Drama and English were my favourite subjects at school. I have recently learnt how to sew and am really enjoying making my own clothes! I play the Ukulele, and have been in lots of choirs. Another way I relax is cooking and going to restaurants with friends. I am really looking forward to calling Brasilia my home and exploring what it and the rest of Brazil and South America has to offer.
