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 Ahmedabadi.
We will be adding lots of pictures of our exciting activities onto Class Dojo as the year goes on to show how much we are learning every single day. Please make sure you are registered on www.classdojo.com
