Teacher - Angela Ledger

I have been working at my current school for almost seven years. We are a federated school initially on four sites but now on three. I am a mathematics specialist currently teaching one of two mixed ability year 3/4 classes. I also teach the year 4's plus a few high attaining year 3's for numeracy.  I run a lunchtime mathematics club in which a quarter of the KS2 children attend.
