Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!


Hi, my name is Miss Gittins and I'm the lucky lady who gets to be the Year 1 teacher! On this page you will find a snap shot of the lovely things we do in class as well as some useful information and links too. Every day is full of exciting things to discover, interesting things to do and the joy when a little person learns something new or realises they can achieve something they thought was too tricky.
