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 my favourite thing in the world, especially with my beautiful labradoodle Alfie and in the company of family or friends.
Being a little bit competitive, I love watching and playing sport. I played hockey, badminton and rounders at high school and continued to play hockey and badminton at university. I still play rounders in a summer league and play badminton when I can but right now, I’m focusing on walking and going to the gym. I also love watching football at the weekend and I get really engrossed with big sporting events such as the football world cup, the six nations and the Olympics.
I love all things Harry Potter or Disney related! I could talk for hours about Harry Potter and Disney takes me back to my childhood, watching the classics on VHS 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!! Snakes… not as much of a fan!
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.
