Woodland View Primary School

Welcome to Oak

About me...

Hello, my name is Mrs Fiddimore. I teach in Oak Class with Mr Carter and Mr Clayton; I am also the deputy head teacher.

All my children are grown up now - I have 4 children (one girl and 3 boys) and 2 granddaughters. I lived in Germany for 11 years and taught at a school there - my eldest son still lives in Germany. I also have a dog called Flo.

The thing I like most about teaching at Woodland View is working with our lovely children and all the great people who also work at Woodland View. I love talking with you, watching you discover new things and helping you to build who you are as a learner and as a person.  

My favourite things...

  • I love to read. My favourite children’s books are When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit by Judith Kerr and the Harry Potter books.
  • I have recently started running and can now run 5 kilometres! I like to get up early before school and run with my husband before I come in.
  • I enjoy travelling and exploring new places. My favourite place tends to be somewhere where I can spend time with my family and friends.
  • I love spending time with my friends and family.

Being at school…

I try my very best always to plan and teach lessons that will help children to enjoy their learning which will then help them to learn well.

I try to be kind and I work hard to ensure that people in my class also work hard.

I have high expectations of the children in my class. I firmly believe that with hard work the children in our school can aspire to great things.

About me…

Hello, my name is Mr Carter. 

I teach in Oak class and provide additional support in both Oak and Maple class. 

I love working at Woodland View because the people who work here are brilliant and so friendly: salt of the earth people! 

I am married with two children, one aged 7 and one aged 3. I love them very much but they keep me very busy! We also have a pet rabbit called Buddy, he is 12 years old, which is a very good age for a rabbit!

Have a guess...

I have two truths for you and a lie. Can you guess which of the following is true and which is a lie? 

  1. I have sat on a crocodile
  2. I have jumped out of an aircraft (with a parachute of course)
  3. I played football for Sheffield Wednesday’s School of Excellence

My favourite things...

  • I love spending good quality time with my little tribe (family)
  • I am rather partial to a cream tea
  • I enjoy travelling and experiencing new things
  • I love music especially watching live music and going to festivals
  • My favourite books are any books written and illustrated by Anthony Browne. He is an amazing artist!  His books include Willy the Wimp, Zoo and Piggybook.  Visit to explore his work.
