Respect - Collaborate - Grow

Class 4

Welcome to Year 4!

Class Teacher: Mrs E Strydom

I am Mrs Strydom, a senior teacher who started my teaching career in South Africa where I taught for 10 years before relocating to England with my husband and two daughters.


In England I have 17 years of experience in a range of different schools, from rural one form entry to large multi-cultural urban schools. Seeing children grow in confidence and succeeding in an area they previously struggled with, is very rewarding.


At each school, I developed a new passion and skill with children at the centre. Painting large backdrops for annual summer productions whilst involving my after school Art club, teaching children how to play chess and taking them to tournaments, running concerts and talent shows etc. are some of the most memorable activities.  Besides the Arts, I am also passionate about the environment and started an Eco Club when I joined Dorney five years ago. Since becoming Science leader, I have also started a lunchtime Science Club, where the KS2 Science Ambassadors run fun activities for the younger learners in the school.


In my spare time, I sing in a local community choir, paint, and work in my garden as well as cultivating and collecting succulents.
