Year 5 Staff

Mr Sherman - Year 5 Leader and Class Teacher of Holly

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!


Mrs Nouwens - Class Teacher of Ash 



Mrs McDonald - LSA 

I have been a part of the Merton Junior team for 4 years now and I love it! I have been an LSA for 9 years and I love the challenges it brings. My boys take up all my spare times with their hobbies and interests. We even manage to adventure out bike riding, running and even growing our own fruit and vegetables.


Mrs Wheeler - LSA across Year 5 & 6


I am excited to be joining Merton Junior School and look forward to the year ahead. Outside of school I enjoy spending time with family and friends and especially baking with my little boy! I also love travelling and visiting new places from the Cotswolds in England to Dunn's River falls in Jamaica.
