Year 1 

Mrs Cathryn Crilly


My name is Mrs Crilly and I teach Year 1 and 2. I absolutely love being a teacher and I feel very privileged that I get to spend so much time with such wonderful young people. My classroom is full of fun, creativity and imagination. I love to sing everything at the top of my voice and you could probably hear my classroom from very far away! I also enjoy sharing stories about my dog Jasper who can sometimes get himself into trouble.

I love to encourage children to believe in themselves and that they are capable of anything if they work hard enough at it. Our learners in year 1/2 are engaged and enthusiastic which makes it an absolute pleasure to come into work every day!

I have led Digital competency and well-being as subjects throughout the whole school so I spend lots of my time fixing any ICT problems people have and working on how we can best support our learners to be confident, happy and motivated.

Miss Debbie Daniel

Teaching Assistant

My name is Debbie Daniel and I am a Teaching Assistant based in Year 1. I have worked at Ysgol Bryn Collen for 11 years and enjoyed every year spent working at this vibrant and happy school. I am passionate about working with Foundation Phase age children and my calm and nurturing personality brings out the best in all learners. I enjoy working with the children developing their early reading skills and love seeing the swift progress they make. My favourite activities are craft and forest school. I develop the classroom and I am always busy making it an engaging and exciting place to learn.

Mrs Ronnie Medri

1:1 Teaching Assistant

My name is Rhonwen Medri and I'm a 1:1 Teaching Assistant currently working in the Year 1/2 Class at Ysgol Bryn Collen. This is my fourth year assisting and supporting a little boy's learning across the curriculum. I find my role extremely rewarding as I see the children progress and develop their skills, knowledge and understanding. I enjoy all aspects of my role, in particular visiting our forest school and engaging the children with Outdoor Learning. I also supervise the breakfast club ensuring the children have a healthy, balanced and positive start to their day at Ysgol Bryn Collen.
