Hi everyone! My name is Miss Holt and I am the Year 6 teacher at Holy Souls.
I absolutely love being in the outdoors. Walking in the lovely countryside or somewhere scenic is one of my favourite hobbies, especially with my labradoodle Alfie and in the company of family or friends. I have recently bought a road bike so I have enjoyed seeing our lovely countryside on a set of wheels.
Being a little bit competitive, I love watching and playing sport. I played hockey, badminton and rounders at school and I still play rounders in a summer league and play badminton when I can. I also love watching big sporting events such as the football world cup, the six nations and the Olympics.
I love all things Harry Potter or Disney related! Looking back at when I was at primary school, the Harry Potter novels began to be published and became a series of books that I have read several times even into my adult life. Disney takes me back to my childhood, watching the classics with my Dad; the Lion King and Pocahontas were always my favourite.
I absolutely love animals, especially dogs, turtles and koala bears.
I have been really lucky to actually swim with turtles and hold a koala bear!
Finally, I also love to read, especially in the summer holidays when I have plenty of time. My favourite books are Harry Potter (of course!) and I’ve enjoyed reading Emma Carroll’s historical novels.
