Meet Mr Woods.....
Mr Woods (quite bravely!) asked Class 3 to ask him six questions, and here’s what they came up with:
1. What did you want to be as a child? (not a teacher!)
As a child I always wanted to be a helicopter pilot, I once went on a helicopter ride and told my family that this is what I want to be when I’m older! This dream hasn’t quite worked out but I do have a friend who flies small planes so he is currently teaching me how to fly a plane.
2. Which one do you prefer, cricket or teaching?
This is a tough one, as much as I love teaching I think I’m going to have to say cricket. I’ve been brought up playing and teaching cricket, coaching county teams and being captain of my local cricket club, Alnwick, we got into the final two years in succession but lost both times… Maybe I should say teaching?!
3. Do you enjoy teaching Class 3?
Now how do I answer this?! Of course I absolutely love teaching Class 3, they are such a pleasure to teach and they are all the more significant for them being my first ever class! Long may it continue…
4. Do you have any pets?
I don’t currently have any pets, no. I have been brought up with pets throughout my childhood, most recently a bearded collie called Sam, and I plan to continue this by have a dog in the future.
5. What was the best day of your life and why?
This is also a very tricky one, meeting the English cricket team, travelling in Bolivia, South Africa, New Zealand and Australia, being awarded a Civic Award, but I think I honestly have to say the first day at Langton teaching Class 3 as it’s the start of my career.
6. What is your most embarrassing moment?
Hmm, probably walking into a lecture, sitting down and then halfway through realising that I’m in the totally wrong lecture as it was all about Psychology and not PE in schools much to my disappointment. I had to get up and walk out – everyone looking at me – with my tail between my legs!
