Miss Robinson

Since 2014, I have volunteered regularly as a TA whilst at University of Chester completing my Fine Art degree. I am thrilled to be a part of the team at Whitegate and feel so blessed to be teaching class Willow. Last year I completed my teaching training here at Whitegate and prior to that I worked with Year 3/4 class as a Teaching Assistant/one to one and a Mid-day Assistant. I get a lot of enjoyment from working in a school, seeing the children grow and progress, and there is never a dull moment!
Most weekends, I head over to the Llyn Peninsula, North West Wales, where I enjoy exploring the many beaches and kayaking along the coastlines. When I travel, I love to visit art galleries and museums and explore the local landmarks.

Welcome back everyone!  We hope you have had an enjoyable summer break and are ready for another exciting school year!  We are looking forward to seeing you all and finding out what you have been up to over the summer break.

This year, our first topic will be all about the Romans. We will be finding out who the Romans were, what impact they have had on our country and we will be researching some of histories famous Romans. The catastrophe in Pompeii will also be a big part of our exciting discussions, as we learn what happened in 79 AD, by following the text ‘Escape to Pompeii’.
