Squirrels

Living and Learning with Faith, Friendship and Fun

Welcome to Squirrels Class

Homework

The Year 1 class are called Squirrels. The class teacher is Miss MacMillan, and our class teaching assistants are Mrs Hebbes and Ms Axon.  We also have Mr Barber, a Schools Direct Student Teacher.

It will be great to get to know all of the parents so please feel free to come and say hello on the playground at the end of the day!

We have PE on Thursday and Friday, so please could children come to school wearing their PE kits. Homework will be set weekly on Friday and is due back on the following Wednesday. We look forward to a busy, but fun-filled year of learning. 

The children are now in Key Stage 1 and their learning will be different to their experiences in the past but we are extremely confident that the children will rise to the challenge.
