Year 1 - York
Hello everyone and welcome!
My name is Ms Ahmed and I am York Class’ teacher.
York Class is an exciting place to learn!
In our class, we have thirty enthusiastic, talented and hardworking children, who are supported in their learning by an outstanding Year 1 team: Ms Akram and Ms Latifah, dedicated teachers and very supportive parents.
Our class values of willingness, ambition, resilience, respect, enthusiasm and never giving up, permeate the life of our school, with staff, pupils and parents working and learning together, sharing a common aim for all our children to be the best that they can be in our journey of building tomorrow, today.
I hope our class page gives you a flavour of life in York Class!
With best wishes,
