Rosen Class (Year 4)

Our teacher is Mrs HiGGINS and our teaching assistants ARE Mrs Jolley and MRS BELL




After researching different poets, we held a class vote. The children pretty much unanimously voted for our class to be named after Michael Rosen. Reasons for this included how much they enjoy the poems he writes and his personal stance on supporting schools and education.

His fight against Covid-19 in the current pandemic also blew our minds. After spending 47 days in intensive care, he returned home and the first thing he did was start writing a new book for children: Rigatoni the Pasta Cat. We say he is TRULY inspirational.

Check out his you tube channel and personal website here:





To help with communication during this time we have set up our class page on Marvellous Me.

Marvellous Me


This is being used to set homework, pass on messages and share how marvellously your children are doing in school.

If you have had any trouble accessing the site please contact Mrs Higgins for help.
