Welcome to Blue Class!
I'm Miss Bowman and I am the class teacher for year 1. Mrs Baker and Mrs Tilley are Blue Class' lovely teaching assistants. Mrs Baker works Monday to Wednesday and Mrs Tilley works on a Thursday and Friday. We love working in Blue Class and learning alongside the children. There is nothing more amazing than seeing the children's personalities grow throughout the year as they develop confidence with their learning. This gives them a sense of pride and achievement which makes us all very proud to work with them. We aspire to capture the children's interests as we go along our learning journey, to ensure that they are always engaged and inspired. We aim to promote a love of learning that they will be able to take with them throughout their school journey. Together myself, Mrs Baker and Mrs Tilley make a great team as we offer different skills and attributes. Mrs Baker is very creative and often comes up with fantastic ideas to make our classroom engaging and exciting for the children to work in, Mrs Tilley is very compassionate and caring and I love to have fun and be silly sometimes. We are also very lucky to have a lovely spacious classroom where the children have access to a themed book corner and role play area depending on the class topic. Overall we aim to ensure that children receive the best education, academically and emotionally in a safe learning environment where they feel confident and happy to be themselves.
