Welcome to the Year 1 page. I am Miss Horne the class teacher and working alongside me in Year 1 is Mrs Shoesmith and with support from Miss Jones.  We like to work closely with parents and the children to ensure that we can build a strong home-school relationship. Please do not hesitate to come and talk to us about any concerns or questions you may have. In Year 1, we hope to build the children's confidence and independency through investigations, discussions and encouraging the children to ask questions.
