Can you introduce yourself and tell us what you do at our school?
Hello! I am Mr Dickinson, and I am new to Eye Primary this term. I have been teaching in different classes over the last few weeks - and enjoying getting to know as many of you as possible! After Christmas, I will be teaching children from Kangaroos and Meerkats in The Den from Monday to Wednesday - and going down to Chimps to teach on Thursdays and Fridays. I will also be running a Book Club for children in Y6, and a Fun Maths Club for Y2s - I can’t wait to get started!
What did you study at University?
I studied English and Primary Education at Bishop Grosseteste Teacher Training College in Lincoln, and at Hull University. I loved living away from home for the first time - and I had a great time, and made lots of friends whilst studying for my degree.
What were your favourite subjects at school?
My favourite subjects at school were PE, History and English. I also played football and rugby for my school - but I was never very good!
What did you do before you were a teacher?
I used to work in a record shop on Saturdays, and when I went away to College I worked part-time in Boots in Lincoln!
What do you like to do out of school?
I like reading, listening to music and watching films, and I also enjoy walking and cycling - and going to football matches. I support Manchester United, but I usually go to see Peterborough United or Lincoln City! I love food, and like to cook for my family - but unfortunately, my experiments often turn out to be inedible!
What's your favourite meal?
I love Indian food - especially curries (And especially if I haven’t cooked them myself!)
Is there anything you really don't like?
Can you describe yourself in one word?
