Year 1/2

Welcome to Ash Class!

I am really looking forward to working with you next year and can’t wait to see you all again and hear about what you have been up to.

Our PE days will be Monday and Thursday.

Meet your Teachers

Hello! My name is Miss Cotterill and I am your Class Teacher.

At university, I completed a degree in English. I love children’s books and reading. I love animals! At home, I live with two cats called Milo and Moby and a sausage dog called Louie. I love travelling and going on holiday! My favourite place I have been is Australia.

I love being a teacher! My favourite part of the job is when children have ‘light bulb moments’! My favourite colours are all pastel colours, I love light pink, purple and blue! I enjoy spending time with my friends and family and love a good cup of tea.
