Welcome to Year 5 - Maple Class

Class Teacher: Mrs Lucy Dines

This is my second year at Redhills, after relocating back to Devon from Reading. Having grown up in Devon, I could not wait to come home and be close to the sea and my family again.


Teaching is a true passion of mine and I get so much enjoyment out of watching children thrive and immerse themselves in learning. I firmly believe that a child’s time at primary school builds the foundations for their future. At the heart of my classroom is a passion for fostering a life-long love of learning, to be able to send out the next generation with the confidence and aspirations to enjoy challenge and cope well with uncertainty and complexity. Throughout my teaching career, I have been lucky to teach in Year 5; have spent 4 years teaching Year 6, last year was in Year 3 and am now back in Year 5. I am also the KS2 Literacy Lead and oversea the running of the school library.


Outside of school, I am a keen skier and relish any opportunity in the winter to travel to the snow. I am also a lover of baking as well as being a huge Disney fan.
