Meet your teachers
Hello I am Mrs Fearn and I am the Nursery Lead, I started working at Aston Lodge in 2020 and really enjoy welcoming new families to Aston Lodge Primary. I have a strong interest in special needs and believe early intervention is key.
I am looking forward to getting married in October 2022 where my name will officially change to Mrs Fearn.
In my spare time I love to bake and go on long walks with my two teenage boys. I love to travel to new places and have holidays down south.
Hello, I am Miss Woodger, and I am an apprentice Teaching Assistant here at Aston Lodge FS1. I have been here since September 2020 and have enjoyed helping all children achieve the best they can as well as gaining my experience for the future!
In my spare time, I love exploring new places with my family and going shopping with my friends. I also love cooking and am always trying new recipes!
My favourite time of year is Ramadan and Eid where I can celebrate with my close family and friends and cook traditional meals for everybody to enjoy.
I look forward to meeting you all in September and helping you on your journey whilst at Aston Lodge.
My name is Mrs. Moore and I am a teaching assistant in Key Stage 1. I have worked at Aston Lodge for 13 years.
In my free time I love spending time with my family, I love family holidays especially to Cornwall – it’s my favorite place to visit. I also love to be creative; I enjoy painting, baking and crochet but my favorite way to relax is reading. I have two dogs and I love walking with them in the woods.
I love working at Aston Lodge, getting to know all of the children is a privilege. I am really looking forward to working with you in September.

For Nursery, the children will need to bring a bag with a spare change of clothes, a water bottle and outdoor clothing such as a waterproof coat and a pair of wellington boots.
For children staying for lunch, they will be accompanied in the dining hall between the hours of 11.30-12.15pm. Hot dinners are available for a fee of £3.18 per day. Children can bring in a home-made packed lunch for a fee of £1 per day for lunch time supervision.
Every Friday the children will engage in ‘Challenge Friday’ where they will spend the morning completing challenges set by Super Ted. As a reward for completing all the challenges, the children will receive treats from Super Ted.
In Early Years we consistently engage in baking activities and ask parents to make a small, voluntary contribution of £3 per year for the cost of resources.
Phonics in Nursery
In Nursery, children enjoy learning Nursery Rhymes and Voice Play songs. Rhymes sensitise a child to the individual units of sound that make up a word. The rhythms present in Nursery Rhymes help children to remember the words, exercising their auditory memory skills.
In Nursery, we follow the Twinkl Phase 1 Phonics SSP programme from the Autumn Term until the Spring Term. The purpose of Phase 1 is to develop children’s listening and communication skills. including their vocabulary, to prepare them for reading and writing in the next phase/level.
If children do not fully develop these skills it can mean that they may struggle to hear the individual sounds in words which can mean children find it much harder to spell and blend sounds for reading.
During Level 1 children will develop their listening and communication skills through 7 aspects:
- Environmental sounds
- Instrumental sounds
- Body percussion
- Rhythm and rhyme
- Voice sounds
- Oral blending and segmenting
In the Summer Term, the children will begin the school’s Phonics scheme
Read Write Inc, in-line with the rest of the school.
