Hello! My name is Mrs Rayner. I am delighted to be a year 6 teacher as it truly is an honour to be part of the final year of Primary School experience. Although I have not been at St John's long, I have been teaching for over 8 years and I am still as passionate about teaching now as I was back then.

My favourite subjects to teach are English, RE and PE - I just love how they encourage children to 'think outside the box', be creative with their ideas and challenge their misconceptions. I also love reading with my class as there are so many incredible texts out there which children and adults alike enjoy. It is so enjoyable to see their faces light up when something unexpected/shocking happens and they just want to read on!

When I am not at school, I love taking my dogs on long walks through the woods, to the beach or simply some place we haven't explored yet. I also like to challenge myself by trying something new - this could be a new skill, food, book etc. as it's never too late to learn something new.
