Ms Gallie, who is originally from Cornwall, is in her second year as a teacher at The Willow Primary School, Tottenham.

She said: “I really enjoyed visiting Downing Street, and it was interesting to see inside. We were well-looked after, the Prime Minister made a speech to thank teachers for the work they do.

“I’m really enjoying teaching at The Willow School. The staff are lovely. I definitely want to stay working within education.”

At the moment, her class are focussing on writing fiction. She said: “We’ve been doing a lot of writing activities and a lot of collaborating and sharing stories. I’ve been having huge expectations of them.”
