Meet the Team
Mr Hirst - Class Teacher Hello! My name is Mr Hirst and I am so excited to be teaching Team Positive this year! This is my first year teaching at Wellgate and I can’t wait to begin! I am really looking forward to helping the children improve throughout the year and to watch them develop into young adults. I am a very competitive person and that shows in my favourite hobbies as I love being active, with some of my favourite sports being football, cricket and over recent years I have begun to take up golf! I have a 3-year-old Cavapoo called Pippin who keeps me busy with his crazy personality when I’m at home. I'm looking forward to getting stuck into Year 5 and having a fun year with my class!
Mrs Bedford - Class Teaching Assistant I’m incredibly organised and determined – this helps me thoroughly in my role as a teaching assistant. I’ve worked hard to achieve the qualifications that I have and that is something that I’m really proud of – I’m able to share my work ethic and thirst for knowledge with the children that I work with whilst supporting them in being successful in their learning. I really enjoy seeing children achieve their milestones. I love reading and being with my family. I would really like to learn more about science and one day, I would really like to be able to speak Spanish. I think Manchester is an exciting city and if my family weren’t close by, that is somewhere I would like to live. My favourite ice-cream flavour is chocolate and I love eating this when I visit the cinema.
Mrs Littledyke - Class Teaching Assistant Hello my name is Mrs Littledyke and I am lucky enough to be one of the Year 5 Teaching Assistants. I am a kind, caring and funny person who loves to learn new things. In fact, I think you should learn something new every day. Each day working with children is rewarding and I absolutely love the individuality of every child. My biggest inspiration is my Grandad. He was an amazing man with a fabulous outlook on life. I love to read and my favourite book is Peace at Last. I also love visiting Scotland – I adore it!
