Year 1 2019 - 2020

Miss Bill

Welcome To Year 1!


Meet Our Key Stage 1 Team

Mrs Wylde is our Key Stage 1 Leader and Y1/2 teacher. Miss Bill is our Year 1 teacher. Miss Millington is our Year 2 teacher.  Mrs Rowson and Miss Ryan are our classroom assistants.

In Key Stage 1, we will be continuing the experiences the children have had in EYFS and we will be developing their independence further.

As you can appreciate, we have lots of children in Key Stage 1. With this in mind, please ensure that all of your child's uniform is clearly labelled with their name. Whilst the children are encouraged to look after their belongings, sometimes bits and pieces go missing. If they are labelled we can return them to their rightful owners.

If you have any questions or queries, please ask our staff on the door at the beginning of the day or the end of the day.
