Hello! I'm currently a Year 3/4 teacher in a small school in Northamptonshire. I'm in my second year of teaching and I am the subject lead for Art, DT and Music. The resources I upload are mainly things that I either couldn't find anywhere else online, so made myself, or creations I've made after being inspired by others! I hope some of these are helpful for you :)
