Ian McNally is a Year 5 teacher at St John's Church of England middle school in Bromsgrove, Worcestershire "He is the best teacher I have ever had," writes 10-year-old Ruth Power in a letter nominating him. "Why? Because he is exciting and makes learning fun, he develops our work into games and then we understand." Ruth asks if we can also send Maltesers to Mr Mcally - he and his dog Monty love them. Sorry to disappoint, Ruth, but the flowers should say it all.
