Hello and welcome to Parwich


Mrs Astell




Hello. I'm Mrs Astell and I am really looking forward to teaching you next year.  I have been teaching at St John's since 2008 and after teaching in Year 2 for the last few years, I am now enjoying teaching Year 5.  


In my spare time, I like to spend time with my family.  We enjoy looking after our two horses, Magic and Tia, as well as our cats. 

I enjoy baking cakes, reading and walking in the beautiful Derbyshire countryside.  I'm really looking forward to learning lots about you all in September.




As you probably already know, all of our classes are named after places in Derbyshire.  We are Parwich, which is a small village in the High Peak, 7 miles north of Ashbourne.  There are only 472 people who live in Parwich - less than the number of children at St John's.
