Year 1

Welcome to Year One!

We are so excited to meet all of you and welcome you into our Classes! Year 1 is a busy year as we start to work more independently and spend longer on tasks given to us.

 

Our teachers this year are Miss Jones in Beech Class and Miss Dorman in Cedar Class.

We are supported by Miss Ismail and Mrs McCool

 

We will be adding lots of pictures of our exciting activities as the year goes on to show how much we are learning every single day.
