A Bit About Me
I am Mrs Vella and I am a teaching assistant in Key Stage 2 at Burnhope Primary School. I love working at Burnhope Primary School and enjoy helping the children when they find something difficult. I especially enjoy getting outside and being active, playing sports or play ground games at break times. I enjoy having conversations with children and getting to know them so that I can help them better. I am trained as a teacher but really enjoy being a teaching assistant here at Burnhope.
Favourite School Activities
I enjoy teaching small groups and helping individual children in maths and English.
I especially enjoy writing tasks as I love to hear the amazing ideas and vivid imaginations of children.
I enjoy hearing children read to me and teaching History.
I love to spend time with my family, particularly my little girl. I love the great outdoors, climbing trees and having adventures in new places. I love to cook and keep my house clean and tidy. Creative writing is something I love to do in my spare time, and to help me improve my writing, I make sure I read plenty of different kinds of books. I like to stay healthy and make sure I do plenty of exercise.
Italian food is my favourite cuisine as pasta, pizza and cheese are my favourite foods.
I find you can do anything with pasta.
My all-time favourite dish is creamy garlic mushrooms or a lovely spaghetti marinara, which is seafood spaghetti.
Favourite Television Programme or Film
I love any story which allows me to escape to other worlds. Avatar, Lord Of The Rings, Harry Potter and any Disney film are up there on my favourites list. I don’t watch a lot of TV, but if I did, I find Horrible Histories both hilarious and educational.
