Key Stage 2 - Year 4 Staff

Class 4MC


Mwelwa Coombs


Year 4 Lead and KS2 Lead

Hello, I'm Mel and this is my first year teaching at The Vaynor First school. I am very excited to be teaching in Year 4 this year and I will also be leading Key Stage 2 and English. My favourite subjects to teach are Maths, Art and English of course! I especially love making learning fun and helping our children find and nurture their passions. 

When I'm not teaching, I love spending time with my husband and our son. We love gardening, painting, making music and taking care of our indoor plants together. I am originally from a country called Zambia and we love to travel there every few years.

Diane Williams

Hi, my name is Diane and I have a lovely husband and two wonderful daughters. I joined The Vaynor in 2016 and currently work in Year 4.  

I love any form of music, singing and theatre and belong to a large vocal group. I also have a passion for any historical and love exploring other countries and our own beautiful countryside.

Sophie Thomas


Hello, I’m Sophie and I moved from Wales to teach at the Vaynor in May 2014.  I live in Stratford-Upon-Avon with my lovely son and we love to watch films, one of our favourites at the moment is The Lego Movie.

In the classroom, I love using ICT to get the children excited and using a variety of apps to enhance their learning. I am pleased to take on the role of Computing co-ordinator across the school and share my experiences of using technology in the classroom.

I really enjoy working with such a friendly, hard-working team and I'm looking forward to being in Year 4 again this year.
