Year 5 Teacher

Olivia Wilson
BA in Classical Studies and French,
QTS, Postgraduate Diploma in Education

I grew up in Belfast in the north of Ireland but, since I was young, I have loved travelling. I have always wanted to come to China, and I couldn’t be more excited about living in beautiful Nanjing. 

I studied French and Classics at King’s College, London before completing my Postgraduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) at Canterbury Christchurch University.  While studying for my PGDE, I had the opportunity of completing action research projects focused on many pedagogical areas including reading skills for children with SEN and the teaching of metacognition (thinking strategies). During university, and since then, I have taught a wide range of ages and abilities in Key Stages 1 and 2.  

Outside of school, I have many interests but principally in music and the arts. Being Irish, I am a keen violinist and traditional music player and have sung in many choirs. If you hear anyone dancing a jig around primary then you’ll know who it is! 

The children in my class are curious about the world around them and excited to know what important impact they will have on it.
