Mrs Natasha Miller

teacher in Mars class

Favourite film: My favourite films are the Lord of the Rings Trilogy.  I just love the imagination of J.R. Tolkien, particularly his creation of middle earth and the different genres of characters.  My favourite character is Arwen the She-Elf.

Favourite music: listening to the Schindler’s List theme tune makes my hairs stand up on the back of my neck; a beautiful piece of music.

Favourite activity:   I absolutely love my weekends with my family; especially Saturday nights watching Strictly Come Dancing with the fire on knowing when its finished it will be Christmas!

Mrs Katie Vasu

TA in Neptune class

Film: Any of the Harry Potter films. They remind me of the years they came out, of Christmas, and of the excitement that surrounded the release of each one. More importantly, they now keep my children quiet for almost 3 hours at a time.

Place: Anywhere by the sea. Preferably somewhere with white, sandy beaches, but Hythe will do.

Pastime: My favourite, and yet sometimes least favourite pastime is running. I love that it’s the one thing I do by myself, I enjoy the challenge, and it’s the one sport I have achieved something in, by finishing the 2015 London Marathon in 4 hours and 21 minutes. Just please don’t ask me to sprint….

Mrs Natasha Sparkes

TA in Neptune class

Food: As a treat my favourite food is Ben & Jerrys ice cream! Anything with caramel in it. I have a bit of a sweet tooth.

Place: At the weekends when the weather is nice you’ll find me at the beach looking for shells and ‘treasure’ with my daughter. We love the sea and would like to live closer to it one day.

Pet: We have recently got 2 kittens – Monty and Rafferty – they are grey and very soft and cute and keep us on our toes at home. They follow us everywhere.
