Ms Pebbles Sam
Reception B Teacher
BA (Bachelor of Arts) Drama, Applied Theatre and Education from The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama PGCE (Post Graduate Certificate of Education) from Goldsmiths, University of London
I have been teaching for 6 years in London, England and have been lucky enough to experience every single year group in some capacity. My first year as a class teacher was in Year 2 where a lot of emphasis was on preparing children for their SATs. I then quickly found myself in Year 5, where I stayed for 3 years and I am now currently teaching in Year 4. Throughout this time, I have been a subject lead for drama and Philosophy for Children (P4C) which led to me taking a year out of class to teach a drama and P4C curriculum that I designed to every single child in school from Reception up to Year 6. I also used this time to support class teachers in using these specialist subjects so that they felt empowered to teach the curriculum that I had created. I am looking forward to applying my experience to BSB whilst learning new things too! When I am not in the classroom, I can usually be found in my local CrossFit box testing my limits with the Workout of the Day. I have only been doing CrossFit for the past year, but I have already taken part in a few competitions and look forward to seeing what the Brazilian CrossFit scene has to offer! I am a huge musicals fan and can regularly be heard belting out show tunes before the start of school. I am a great believer in how singing as part of a group can do wonders for your wellbeing and regularly take opportunities to sing with my class. As well as the social activities mentioned above, I also enjoy getting lost in a good book. My favourite genre has always been fantasy with some of my most loved books having been written by Terry Pratchett. I have a great interest in children’s literature, and you would be hard pressed to find a good picture book that I haven’t read or taught!
