Welcome to Year 1!

Year 1 has two teachers; Mrs Hodgkinson and Mrs Emery. We also have the fantastic Mrs Westlake working with us too!

We have had a great time so far in Year 1 and we are excited for our Summer term ahead. Whether you are learning from home or in school, we will make sure we have lots of fun and work hard!
