My name is Rachael Grimes and I am currently the Reception teacher here at Eccleston Primary School. This will be my third year teaching Reception and I feel very fortunate to be teaching the youngest children in school. I love spending my days with such enthusiastic and curious children and to see all of their incredible achievements they make. I am passionate about children having engaging and inspiring learning opportunities to support them to gain a love of learning.
Throughout school I am the phonics lead which allows me to support children in developing their reading and writing skills. It always makes me proud to see the children using their phonics skills on a daily basis and to see the remarkable progress they make. I am also the R.E lead and am excited about developing this subject further throughout school to provide children with an enriching curriculum.
Away from school, I love nothing more than a shopping day followed by a Costa caramel slice.
