Here is a bit about me:

My name is Mr Greatbanks, I am sport mad! I love every single sport there is and I am always at my happiest when I am out in the playground having a kick around with you guys. My real passion is for triathlons, I have competed in many different triathlons, including an Ironman race! If I am not out running or cycling, I am spending time with my family. You will hear my mention my son Ezra all of the time, telling you all about our crazy adventures together.


During this year we will be working upon your prior knowledge from year 4, gaining new skills as well as mastering many skills that you will need for your future. I will be working hard to give you lots of exciting opportunities to show off your new skills through, fun learning experience like trips, class work and visitors.
