Year 1 Yew Class

Welcome to Yew!

Welcome to Yew Class. I am the proud year 1 teacher, Mrs. Payne. Together with Miss Anker and Miss Cowell, we have the great job of supporting our class to become incredible, enthusiastic learners. We are a busy class of 28, and we have lots of tremendous children who run in daily with huge smiles. I believe that this is down to the exciting curriculum and subjects that we teach. This year some of the areas of learning we will be covering are 'Where in the world are we?' in geography, 'What is my history?' in our history lessons, and 'Animals, including humans' in science, to name but a few. It is great seeing the children become eager, confident and independent learners. We always aim to keep that enthusiasm growing.
