Emily Barrett-Year 5 class teacher (Westminster)
It is incredibly exciting to be leading English at West Byfleet Junior School. I have always been a keen reader, and love that feeling of escapism when becoming lost in a book. It brings me great pleasure recommending my favourite books to the children at school and watching them enjoy them as much as I did when I was young; even better when they love the characters as much as I do! Seeing these stories become inspiration for children’s writing is extremely rewarding– they take them to places you never thought was possible!
