Year 1

Welcome from Miss Barker!

Hello and welcome to the Year 1 Class Page!

I am Miss Barker and I am the Year 1 teacher at Shobnall Primary & Nursery School. I am passionate about teaching and learning and I enjoy teaching the curriculum in a creative and engaging way. I aim to create a positive learning environment where children feel inspired and in love with their learning. 

Mrs Jamil, Mrs Shannon, Mrs Traczyk and Mr Attwood will also be working with us this year!

  • The school day starts at 8.55am and finishes at 3.30pm. The total time this amounts to in a typical week is 32.5 hours.
  • Children are encouraged to come into school independently.
  • Morning messages can be passed on via an adult who supervises the gate.


Weekly children will receive;
