Meet Our New Teachers
Off the Page is delighted to welcome Ian Agnew and Patrick Nielsen to our teaching staff.
Ian joins us from Abbey Meadows Primary School in Cambridge, where he was known for the imaginative ways he engaged his pupils. One class created an immersive Viking museum where the children created battles, told sagas, built model longhouses and taught writing in runes.
Patrick previously taught at Meridian Primary School in Comberton, where he led the KS2 Forestry School. He, too, created in-school museums with his pupils, exploring eras such as the Stone Age, Romans and Tudors. While studying the Vikings, he and his children went so far as building a longboat and burning it in a traditional funeral!
We are thrilled to have both of them join our team.
