Mr Sherman - Year 5 Leader and Class Teacher of Ash
My name is Mr Sherman. I started teaching at Merton three years ago and have loved every minute of it. Outside of school I enjoy playing basketball and watching as much sport as possible. I also enjoy going to the gym, watching a good film and reading as much as I can!
Mrs Garside - Class Teacher of Elm
I have been teaching for nine years and really enjoy how every day is different. In my spare time, when I'm not looking after my little boy, I enjoy reading and watching films. I also enjoy nail art, learning new patterns and trying them out on myself and friends!

My name is Miss Batchelor, and this is my very first year of teaching. I am already loving it here at Merton with my first class! In my spare time, I enjoy socialising with friends and swimming. I also like to relax by watching TV and reading.
