Hello and welcome to Diamond Class. My name in Mr Hinksman and I am the class teacher as well as the school’s deputy head teacher. I’ve been teaching for 12 years now but I started at Rishton Methodist Primary School 2 years ago. I absolutely love teaching and have wanted to be a teacher since I was 7 years old. It was always going to be that or a footballer playing for my beloved Blackburn Rovers but it became clear quite early on that I wasn’t going to be able to do that so I pursued my passion for teaching instead. Outside of school, I still love playing football (even if it is just for my local team) although as I’m getting older, I do struggle to do this as often as I used to! Aside from football, I spend my free time with my wife and little boy, visiting new places and meeting up with friends. Helping me out in Diamond class is the fantastic Mrs MacMillan who does a wonderful job as the class teaching assistant. We are both looking forward to a successful year in Year 6 this year!
