Year 1

Welcome from Miss Brewin-Woodhouse!

Hello, I am Miss Brewin-Woodhouse and I am the Year 1 teacher at Shobnall Primary & Nursery School. I love teaching Year 1 and cannot wait for a fun filled year of exciting learning opportunities and supporting our children in acquiring new skills. Our curriculum in Year 1 is engaging, interactive and most importantly, fun! Outside of school I love walking my two dogs Lottie and Ludo, eating scrumptious food and dancing all kinds of styles!

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