There are so many OVs who play a part in school life today and it speaks volumes that so many OVs choose to work at King’s. We are delighted to welcome Lucy Campbell (née Horn) (Os 95-02) to King’s Hawford this term, where she takes up her role as a Reception teacher.
At School, Lucy was a keen member of the Himalayan Club as well as heavily involved with Hockey and Fencing. On leaving King’s, Lucy completed her Primary Education PGCE at the University of Central England and she has enjoyed working in the profession ever since. Lucy has also written two novellas, and is currently working on a third, which are part of the King’s Watch series by Mark Hayden.
Of starting at King’s Hawford, Lucy says, “Everyone is so friendly, the children are enthusiastic and fun, and I’m really looking forward to the term ahead.”
Reception is an exciting time for children (and teachers!) as they begin their journey into formal education. The Reception year focuses on ensuring children are confident and ready to learn key skills such as reading and writing, as well as those in mathematics in line with the Early Years Foundations Stage curriculum. No school day will look the same for Lucy as at King’s Hawford curriculum activities are often delivered both indoors and outdoors, with children spending a great deal of time learning outside of the classroom. Children move between learning sessions in the colourful and stimulating classrooms, outdoor areas, the adventure playground, the tipi, and the Forest School.
We are so pleased to welcome Lucy to the King’s team and wish her well with her role at King’s Hawford.
