Giggles and Questions with Kacey

Hi ! Welcome back to my cheeky interviews with members of staff . This time I have a helper … it’s Jazmin !!

As Jazmin and myself are the new Ridge blog editors we will need to write an editors   letter .


Hey! It’s jazz here.This week I will be diving deep into the personality of Mrs.pike who teaches in year 6 on Monday and Tuesday and runs forest skills. Here we go…

What’s your favourite food and why?

Spaghetti Bolognese because my dad was really good at cooking it and it was the only dish I could make when I moved out

What did you do before teaching?

Well, when I was training to be a teacher I worked as a lifeguard.

If you could invite 3 celebrity’s (dead or alive) to a dinner party who would it be?

First I would invite saverouse snape to chat about harry potter, then Michael Mcintyre to make me laugh, and Adel because she seems very down to earth and she could sing whilst we are eating

If you could live anywhere in the world where would you live and why?

Canada, by the Rocky Mountains as vie been there on my holiday and everywhere I looked I smiled!


If you could play any Olympic sport what would you play?

Bobsleigh because it looks fun zooming down on that thing!!

If you could be any animal what would you be and why?

I would be a tiger as  they are very good at camo and blending in so I could hide if I needed, and they are strong!

Memory challenge!

Mrs.pike got them all right

This year instead  of the cups I am doing a memory game! I will show the member of staff 15 objects and let them look at them for 15  seconds . When I cover them up  it  all depends on how many objects they could remember.

Mr Patton remembered 14 out of 15  objects !! Impressive !




Hello, I’m Kacey. Join me while I interview and interrogate as many staff members as I can!
