Year 1

Miss Arkless (Class teacher) Mrs Tote (Teaching Assistant)
My name is Miss Arkless. I am the class teacher for year one and joined the team here at Clover Hill in November 2017. I was originally working along side Mrs Gibson in Year 3 and also supporting year five and year six.

This is going to be a great year and we have the pleasure of having our own teaching assistant Mrs Tote, and also the support of Mrs Earl.

Moving from Reception into year one is a huge step for the children but we strive to create an exciting, inclusive and broad curriculum for the children.

We have so much to look forward to in Year 1 this year! Please feel free to catch me on the yard at any time should you need to discuss anything.
