Rabbits (Yr1) 2023 - 2024
Welcome to our remarkable Rabbits' Class
What makes us remarkable Rabbits?
We, of course, are cute but we like to go much deeper into how to be a group of children who choose to be kind:
Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
In Year 1 we choose to enjoy learning, being kind and respectful as we love our light to shine brightly.
Our teacher is Mrs Harrison.
Our teaching assistants are Mrs Woods and Mrs Palmer with Mrs Bougen and Mrs Hamlett.
