Welcome to Year 1’s Class Page
My name is Mrs Millington and I am the class teacher for Year 1. I am also the Phonics, History, Geography and Global subject leader.
Mrs Eadie is our class teaching assistant on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday morning. She is very passionate about music and can often be found singing her way through school!
Home Learning – May 2021
The worksheets that will be needed for each lesson are underlined. You can click the underlined words and the document will open. You can either print the document for your child to write on, or if you do not have a printer then you can display the worksheet on the screen and they can write their answers on a piece of paper. Please ensure your child does not complete their sheet until after the zoom session.
