Mrs J. Venables: EYFS Phase Leader
Teaching is my absolute passion. As teachers we are given the privilege of being able to nurture, teach and take an important role in your childs' developmental stages. Your child is in my hands for an astonishing amount of time. Therefore, I believe it to be paramount that the children are happy during their time at school, enjoy learning and are equipped with the skills for their future lives. I always endeavour to make learning fun, tailor learning to individual needs and continually re-asses where their learning is taking them.
I have been a teacher at Foljambe for 5 years now. I have predominantly worked with Foundation and Year 1 Children at Foljambe. My experience prior to this has been with FS, Y1, Y2, Y3 and Y4. My teaching career has spanned 14 years. I have established a wealth of knowledge and teaching skills over the years at schools in North Yorkshire, Australia, Doncaster, Barnsley and Rotherham. I have a particularly passion for Literacy, Art and Phonics. I have supported and lead Phonics across the Learning Community.
I am an artist at heart. I specialised in art during my early training and have since taken an interest in photography, life drawing and craft. In my personal life, I enjoy gardening with my children and travelling round Europe in my Motorhome
