Have your say

There is just one week left to get your entries in for this year’s Scarborough News Teacher of the Year competition.

This is your chance to let everyone know why your teacher is top of the class.

Every year, we give youngsters from across Scarborough the chance to tell us about those special teachers who go the extra mile.

Entries have been pouring in - but there are now just days left to tell us about your top teacher!

Nominations so far include Mr Clayton, of St Martin’s School, who was voted for by Benjamin Walters Hardy, age seven.

He said: “Mr Clayton is the best teacher in the whole world because he is fun. He lets us make giant catapults in the playground.

“He has taken us canoeing, sailing and treasure hunting.”

Frank Denham, seven, of Cayton Primary School nominated Mrs McCulloch, saying: “She’s the nicest teacher I’ve ever known.”

Mrs Grimmett, of Lindhead School, was nominated by seven-year-old Hannah Sellers-Drury, who said: “I think my teacher teaches me really well.

“She taught us about the Great Fire of London and it was really exciting.

“I also like it when she teaches us maths, because she makes it hard but fun!”

Olivia Carson, 10, voted for Miss Chapman, of Seamer and Irton CP School, saying: “For one of our art days we started making Anderson shelters and Miss Chapman spent her own money to buy things such as model shrubs and gravel to make our shelters even better.”

You can write to us as an individual or class, but there must be only one nomination per pupil for each teacher.

Include the entry form with your letter. We will publish a supplement featuring all nominations, with pictures of the children and their classroom heroes.

The winner will receive a framed certificate and a special day out for their class.

The closing date is Friday June 14.
