Hayesdown First School

Striving for excellence together


Welcome to Rabbits’ Class

Our Class Teacher is Mrs Julie Turner

Our mainĀ  Teaching Assistant is Mrs Sara Kelly

We also have a variety of other support adults who work across Year 1 and the rest of the school available at times for different children. The main additional Teaching Assistant is Mrs Abi Bahadoor who works in Badgers and Rabbits each morning.

Year One is the most exciting place to be if you are 5 or 6 years this year and ready to learn!

We love phonics which helps us to read and write. We are great at counting and use our skills to order numbers. We are explorers and scientists finding out about the world through science and project work.We have discovered that if it looks good, people want to see your work so our secret mission is to show our work on the Golden Boards in the school hall.
