I love spending time with my children, especially visiting natural places and museums. We enjoy hunting for fossils.
I am a keen reader and can most often be found engrossed in a good book.
Things we will do together at senSI:
We will complete a number of tasks that investigate how you think. This helps us to understand what your strengths are and what you find difficult.
We will also do some reading and writing together, and possibly some maths. I look forward to hearing all your great ideas!
