Willow Class 2018 - 2019

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 training as a teacher with class Willow. Last year 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.

SPRING TERM

This term we will be adventuring into the exciting topic of 'On Top of the World’. We will be starting this term off with a text by Linda Newbery called ‘The Brokenspectre’. This book is based in a mountain range where a boy called Tomas lives with his family. His brave Pappi is a local mountain guide, who fails to come home one day. Did the Brokenspectre find him? This spooky tale will lead us into exploring mountains, caves and glaciers, with a focus on the Alps mountain range. We will also be learning about those who have explored and discovered these natural formations.
