Schooling with a big spirit

Hello and welcome!

My name is Irene. I am a qualified teacher with PGCE (Primary) from the UCL IoE. My specialisation is in Maths, though I’m interested in all of the interrelated STEM subjects and foreign languages. To learn more about me and my philosophy, please visit About page.

Here you will find my blog and little database of ideas and teaching resources to use in the lessons in EYFS, Key Stages 1, 2 or 3.

This is the place where I describe children’s books that I’ve read and how they can be introduced to children and used in teaching different subjects.



MathsOctopus_webMathematics is one of my favourite subjects. Here I discuss different approaches in teaching mathematics. Problem solving, questioning and dialogic teaching.




Here you can listen to some of my music tracks.
