Welcome to Blue Class!
I'm Miss Rosser and I am the class teacher for Year 1. I am extremely lucky to be joined by Mrs Baker and Mrs Bannister, they are Blue Class' lovely teaching assistants. Mrs Baker works Monday to Wednesday and Mrs Bannister works on a Thursday and Friday. We are also joined by Mrs Curtis a wonderful volunteer to the school on a Monday and Thursday. Together we all love working in Blue class and enjoy learning and having fun together.
Blue class is the best place to be in the school, we have such enjoyable learning experiences and the children are such positive and enthusiastic young learners.
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.
We are also very lucky to have a lovely 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.
