Welcome to Year 1

Welcome to Year 1. In Ash 1 our teacher is Mrs Lea.  In Aspen 1 our teachers are Mrs Hives.  This year we will be exploring lots of exciting topics and we’ll share moments with you here. This is where you’ll find Year One’s curriculum newsletter and any need to know information.

Miss Lea

My name is Mrs Lea. I currently teach in Year 1 but have
taught children from nursery to Year 2. I have been a member of staff at Firs
for 9 years and really enjoy teaching and being a part of the Firs family. When
I am not at school, l I enjoy spending time with my two children where we like
to read and play creatively. My favourite colour is purple and I love eating
chocolate. Children in school describe me as fun and that I make them laugh
especially with my silly dancing. I am passionate about doing my best to help
every individual child progress well and start them on the right path to
succeed in life.

Mrs Hives

Hello. My
name is Mrs Hives and I am going to be your year one teacher. I have been a
teacher for 24 years and I enjoy teaching in the early years and KS1. I am
really excited about meeting you and getting to know you in my class. In year 1
we have lots of fun, making new friends, exploring and learning together. I
love baking, reading and teaching, especially phonics and I can’t wait to help
you be better readers and writers.  I
love spending time with my family and my two children who are growing so fast.
I have two cheeky black and white cats named Domino and Daisy and a rabbit
called Pebbles who likes to chew anything! I am looking forward to our new
adventures, learning and growing together in September.
