Vivien Hunt


Viv has worked in the primary sector for 14 years, initially working in Upper KS2, later in KS1 and more recently in Early Years as a class teacher in Reception.

For many of these years she was responsible for the maths planning, but her real passion was and is supporting children to learn to read. During her time as a class teacher, she has taught reading in a variety of ways but became convinced of the power of 1:1 and very small group teaching for all children, but particularly those children experiencing difficulties in reading or comprehension.

Viv is committed to outdoor learning, having seen how much children enjoy Forest School. The charity’s Wild project is an exciting new addition to its establised programmes, combining the excitement of outdoor learning with books about wildlife and the environment. Viv has always loved reading and is thrilled to have the opportunity to continue to share this love with children.
