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.

Our exciting new topic this term is 'Plants and Growth'. This will involve learning about our natural environment, identifying common and wild plants, trees and what they need in order to grow. We will also have a go at growing plants of our own.  The topic will be supported by texts such as the traditional tale of Jack and the Beanstalk.
