Year 5 Teachers and Teaching Assistants

5 Farah

Year Leader:

Mrs Spalding


I have always wanted to be a teacher, so

after my two children, Gemma and George, started school, I began a degree with The Open University and started volunteering at Minterne.  I love working in Year 5 because Buddhism is one of my favourite topics.  Sia is my favourite music artist and I can often be heard singing along the school corridors.  My favourite film is Stand By Me and I love reading dystopian fiction, like The Gender Game or classics like, To Kill a Mockingbird.  Children in my class know that I really value kindness and I believe that building children’s confidence is key to their learning. 


Lead Teaching Assistant:

Mrs Mungham


Hello, I am Mrs Mungham, the Teaching Assistant in 5S. I have worked as a Teaching Assistant for 8 years now and have been at Minterne for nearly 2 years.  I love my job and could not think of a better place to work. I live in Sittingbourne with my husband and two children, Beck and Lexie. We enjoy going to the cinema and to the theatre.

Teaching Assistant:

Mrs Waghorn


Hello! My name is Mrs Waghorn and I am the TA in 5 Adele. I enjoy working at Minterne because I like working with children and helping them to push themselves to achieve fantastic achievements. I live with my two daughters, Ella and Lillia. We enjoy looking after our guinea pigs, going on holiday to Disney World and baking delicious treats for Mrs Webb!

Class Teacher:

Mr Phillips



Teaching Assistant:

Miss Hewson


I live in Sittingbourne with my three children (Mia, Charlie and Jake), and three dogs (Tyson, Buddy and Lucky). I've been a Teaching Assistant at Minterne for over a year now, and I have to say, it's a wonderful place to work. When I'm not inspiring the future generations of our society, I coach football for children with disabilities and enjoy spending time with my children.
