Welcome Back…You are now in Year 1!
Mrs Park is the class teacher in 1.P. We are very lucky to have three super Learning Support Assistants across Year 1 called Mrs Begum, Mr McDonald and Mrs Riley.
We look forward to what this year has to offer and are very excited for the next adventure this school year.
Our aim is to create a happy and fun learning environment for all children. We want children to enjoy coming to school, to gain new skills and to share our love of learning together.
Below you will find some information you will need for the school week.
