Y2 Topaz 2017-2018
Welcome to Topaz! My name is Mrs Iqbal and I am the KS1 Phase Leader and also lead Maths across school along with the Maths Team. I am also a member of the schools' Senior Leadership Team. I love teaching Year 2, and enjoy teaching all subjects, especially History, RE and Science. I also work alongside Ms Wade who supports learning in the class and with groups of children for further interventions.
I joined Cheadle Heath in 2015, and I have been teaching since 2005. I am very passionate about the job that I do, and I love the fact that everyday is a different day. When a child understands something and has that 'light bulb' moment it makes me smile! I am a very reflective teacher and often think about how I can teach certain aspects of the curriculum in a more creative or active way. I love the approach of having a carousel where children rotate around activities whether it is English, Maths or Topic. I am constantly researching different aspects of the curriculum, and I even took part in a teacher exchange programme with the British Council a few years ago where I travelled to Irkutsk in Siberia!
I am a keen traveller and often go on holidays abroad with my husband and son. As a family we have visited many beautiful places around the world that include Dubai, New York and many countries in Europe. I also enjoy cooking, baking and spending time with my family.
