Miss Lilley



I'm Miss Lilley, the nursery class teacher and Early Years leader. I have been at Homer First School for eight years, having taught in nursery for five years now, and I absolutely love it! One of my favourite parts about nursery is our, 'Stay'n'Sing,' sessions as I love singing and dancing around and having your parents in to join us. I particularly like the silly songs! Outside of school I like spending time with my Mum, shopping and seeing my friends. I am looking forward to meeting you in September and teaching you lots of songs, playing fun games and reading you some wonderful stories but most of all I am looking forward to welcoming you to Homer First School and giving you a fantastic year at school. I hope you all have a wonderful summer and I will see you very soon. 

Mrs Knowles



My name is Mrs Knowles and I have been working part time across the Nursery and Reception classes at Homer First School for just over 3 years. It is a very friendly, happy school and I am sure you will enjoy being a part of it as much as I do. When I am not at Homer First School, I am at home with my husband and our 19 year old daughter. Outside of school I enjoy cooking, baking, walking with our dog and spending time meeting up with friends and family. I am really looking forward to seeing you all in September and helping you settle into school. We will have lots of fun together, playing and learning. Have a lovely summer holidays and let's hope the sun keeps shining! 



Miss Carlton



My name is Miss Carlton and I am a teaching assistant in the nursery class. I joined Homer First School when my own two sons were pupils here and I enjoyed it so much that I am still working here fifteen years later! Our nursery is a very happy place to be and we have so much fun learning together. When I am not in school I spend lots of my time with my friends, shopping or eating out. I have a little dog called Ollie at home, who loves to sit and cuddle up in the evenings on the sofa with me. I am really looking forward to getting to know you all and having lots of fun together in September.
