Year 1

Hello, I am Miss Martin-Mills and I am the Year 1 teacher at Shobnall Primary School. I love teaching in Year 1 and cannot wait for another 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 playing hockey, learning new songs on the piano and reading a good book!

Mrs Barrow, Mr Attwood, Miss Walton, Mrs Traczyk and Mr Rowley will also be working with us this year!

If you would like to find out a bit more about me, have a look at the poster below…
