Viola Class

Welcome to Viola Class

Hi my name is Alistair Drysdale and I am the Viola Class teacher. It is my fourth year at St Werburgh’s and my 5th year in teaching; though I have been working in education for nearly a decade. I love teaching in Year 1 as the rapid progression the children make is very fulfilling and the days are never dull! I believe the classroom should be a place of exploration and investigation where children feel safe and secure to take risks and believe that strong relationships between student and teacher form the foundation of great learning. This year we have many exciting adventures for the children to take part in, from visiting the Aerospace Museum and Blaise Castle to investigating an alien crash landing. We are a friendly team in Year 1 so please feel free to pop your head in and say hello or request a meeting if you ever need to speak to any of us.
