WELCOME TO YEAR 1

 

In Year 1 our teachers encourage us to reach for the stars and always try our best.

Our Year 1 Team: Mrs Power, Miss Swift, Mrs Carpenter, Miss Jones, Mrs Carrol, Mrs Hincks and Mrs Lawson.

We hope to become super readers but we need your help. Please try and read with your child every night. Really focus on asking questions about their book as this will help them with their reading comprehension.
