Year 3 & 4- Sapphire 2021-2022

Year 4's Go Ape trip:


The year 4's recently went on a trip to Go Ape where they showed their high levels of bravery! There were a few wobbly moments (mainly from Mr Finney, Mrs McBride and Mrs Buckley) but we all got around and had a great time! Well done Sapphire!





Mr Finney


I am the teacher for Sapphire class and this is going to be my third year at Homer. My aim is to make everyday exciting and filled with opportunities to learn. I enjoy teaching all subjects but you will see me get extremely enthusiastic (and competitive) during PE lessons.Outside of the classroom I enjoy playing sports, seeing friends and family, and going for walks with my dog Matilda and daughter Delilah. I cannot wait until September to see you all in the classroom.



Mrs Buckley


I am Mrs Buckley and I am a teaching assistant in Sapphire class. I have been working as a teaching assistant at Homer for over 20 years and have worked in both key stage 1 and key stage 2 as well as doing Drawing and Talking.

I love taking my dogs Millie and Frank for long walks with my husband. I also enjoy gardening, swimming and having lots of family BBQ's.

I am really looking forward to September and seeing you all. Have a lovely summer and see you soon. 



Miss Harrold


I am Miss Harrold, I have lots of different roles within the school. I am a teaching assistant, ELSA, Speech and Language TA and  I cover classes. I have been working at Homer for nearly 9 years. I enjoy being able to work with all age groups and working on a 1-1 basis with many children. When I was a little girl I used to come to Homer, so it is lovely for me to now work here. In my spare time I love spending time with my family, walking my 2 dogs, shopping, and going on holiday. I am really looking forward to coming back to school in September to see you all back together to learn lots of exciting and new things. Have a safe and fun summer and I will see you all very soon!
