Year 1 - C

Welcome to Year 1 Creative Cs! My name is Mrs Guerin and I will be teaching Year 1 this year.

Year 1 have had a great time being beside the seaside but in Summer B we are now getting our wellies and binoculars on and becoming explorers of living things. We will continue to have fun with our learning and take part in practical, hands-on activities to support our learning journey. We are independent learners but have also become brilliant team players. We have had so many achievements from both home and school so far this year and we look forward to celebrating many more future achievements with family and the rest of the school. 


Please feel free to come and speak to me throughout the year should you have any questions, queries or concerns.
