Year 5 Staff

Mr Sherman - Ash (Year 5 Team Leader)

My name is Mr Sherman. I started teaching at Merton nearly 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 possible!


Miss Summers - Holly

I am in my second year of teaching at Merton Junior School and still feel very fortunate to be teaching in one of the new classrooms, Holly class, in Year 5. I already love working at Merton and am very excited for the rest of the year! Outside of school I like to watch lots of films and also stay fit and healthy by exercising and cooking healthy meals. My weekends are normally very busy with visiting all my family and friends who are now living all over the country.


Miss O'Flanagan - Elm

This is my second year teaching at Merton and I am really excited to be spending it in Year 5. Outside of school, I am a member of a competitive cheerleading squad competing all over the country throughout the year. I also love to watch the Great British Bake Off and try out some of the (easier) recipes


Miss Thane – LSA Year 5

I'm in my second year of working at Merton Junior School, this being my first year as a Year 5 LSA but I have worked with children for over 16 years and I am thoroughly enjoying being part of the school.  I have two young children, so any spare time I may get is usually taken up by them.


Mrs McDonald - LSA Year 5

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.
