Lynda Fulop teaches our youngest pupils, the Otters, in Reception and Year 1.
Here is everything you ever needed to know about Mrs Fulop!
Q: When did you start working at Heytesbury Primary School?
A: I began working at Heytesbury Primary School near Warminster seven years ago in September 2005.
Q: What do you think is the best thing about Heytesbury Primary School?
A: The best thing about the school is the people…from the children, parents and families to the staff and governors.
Q: Where is your favourite place in the school?
A: I love my classroom. In the morning, it is quiet, tidy and seems to me to be waiting for the day to begin. Then the children arrive and there is noise with adults and children chatting. As the class settle down it becomes calmer. If I take a minute to look round I see busy children learning. At the end of the day the evidence of the children’s efforts are everywhere, notes, letters and homemade books at the writing trolley, wobbly constructions on the table and paintings drying on the washing line. All of which indicate a satisfying day in the classroom.
Q: What is your favourite food/film/music etc?
A: It would be easier to list the food I do not like but more important to me is the people with whom I share the food. I enjoy cooking a Sunday roast and sitting down after a busy weekend to eat with my family. One of my favourite films is Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, which was released in 1969. Going to concerts and gigs is one of my hobbies and I enjoy lots of different music from BB King and Van Morrison to Adele. This summer I saw McFly in a free concert at Hyde Park, great fun.
Q: How would you describe the children at Heytesbury School?
A: The children are unique individuals. I love their enthusiasm for learning and new experiences. This is demonstrated in their willingness to play sports of all kinds whither they win or lose. It is also reflected in their talk and questioning within the classroom. They care for each other whether that is through looking after a friend in the playground or something much bigger like Izzy’s Garden.
Q: If you won the lottery, what would you buy?
A: I would spend the money on two new cars, one for myself and one for my husband.
Q: If you had to sum up Heytesbury Primary School in three words, what would they be?
A: “Caring” “Learning” “Team”
