Year 1

Miss Temperley (Class teacher) Mrs Tote (Teaching Assistant)

My name is Miss Temperley and I am the class Teacher. I have worked at Clover Hill for 6 Years now, starting in Year 4 then moving to KS1, where I have taught for the last 3 Years.

This Year, I have been joined by our Teaching Assistant Mrs Tote who is new to Clover Hill and has thoroughly enjoyed getting to know our wonderful children.

Moving into from Reception is a huge step for the children but we strive to create an exciting, inclusive and broad curriculum for the children of Year 1.

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