Elm Class 2017 - 2018

Mrs Ross

Mrs Ross

I am thrilled to be working at Whitegate C of E Primary School teaching Elm and being part of the wider community. Although this isn’t the first time that I have worked at Whitegate, prior to starting my teacher training I volunteered in the classrooms and worked as a midday assistant. Since completing my training I have been teaching in Cheshire for 10 years. I am passionate about teaching and like to make learning fun and exciting for all the children.
Outside of school I enjoy walking, swimming and reading. Music is also a passion of mine, although I am not an expert musician, I love listening to all genres of music and thoroughly enjoy attending live performances.



Class teacher - Mrs Ross (sross@whitegate.cheshire.sch.uk)

Teaching Assistants - Mrs Rowland, Miss Barlow and Mrs Feast



Our exciting new topic this term is 'Oh I do like to be beside the seaside!' This will involve learning all about living by the sea,, seaside holidays, seaside animals and visits to the seaside.  The topic will be supported by the texts 'Harry and the Jaggedy Daggers' and 'Jack and the Flumflum Tree'.
