Alice Hargrave: Reception Teacher (On Maternity Leave)


Background: BA hons in primary teaching with art and design from Roehampton university. When I first started teaching I worked in a school with an additional provision for hearing impaired. Here I gained a qualification in British Sign Language. I then came back to Merton and have been teaching here since 2014.


Other Special Skills/qualifications/talents When I was at Secondary school I played squash for England, netball for Merton and lacrosse for Surrey. I loved sports!


Hobbies & Interests outside school:

I really enjoy spending time with my family.

I love to read especially books by the author John Green.


Favourite children’s book:

As a child I loved Winnie the Pooh or Beatrix Potter.

As an adult I love to read the class Stanley's Stick. I love the idea of our imaginations and how many different things a stick can become, from a dinosaur bone to a magic wand.
