Year 1

Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I have been a teacher for 6 years and all of those years I have taught in Year 1 (it’s the best!) I am in charge of Art across the whole school because I really enjoy it! We do lots of great Art in Year 1 and you also get to learn about famous Artists – how cool! I’m also in charge of Music at school too! I really love spending time outdoors; going on long walks, not so long runs and I especially love spending time at our Forest School! In Year 1 we spend some time together at Forest School and even have a fire with marshmallows (yum!) I love when the weather is hot and enjoy going to the beach for fish and chips and ice cream! I also love going on holiday abroad in the Summer with my family and my friends and making lots of fun memories! I have a really fluffy cat at home called Nala, she is a bit of a tinker! I also have 2 older sisters and 1 older brother. They all have children, so I have 8 nieces and nephews so far! I love spending time with them. We do lots of different things including visiting the farm, going swimming and riding our bikes!

We have lots of fun in Year 1 and you learn loads too (win win!) I am so looking forward to meeting you at school and making lots of lovely memories together if you are in my class. We will have a great year!

Hi everyone,

I’m Mrs Croll and I am really lucky that I get to be your teacher when you come into Year 1!


Since you may not know me yet, I just wanted to tell you a little bit about myself! I’ve been a teacher for 6 years now and I can honestly say it is the best job in the world! I was actually inspired to become a teacher from my teachers I had whilst I was at primary school! Maybe one day in the future, you will look back and think about the fun you had at Burnopfield Primary School and you may also decide to become a teacher! How cool would that be!? I have been a teacher in year 3, year 2 and now in year 1 and I must say, Key stage 1 is definitely my favourite! Half of the time it may not even feel like ‘work’ because you will be having so much fun at the same time! I love reading stories and all sitting together on the carpet enjoying books! It is one of my favourite times of the day!


Outside of school, I have a little doggy called Mila. She’s a miniature Jack Russell and I’m sure you will hear lots of stories about her when you’re in my class! I love taking her out on long adventures and finding new places to go walking. I love being outdoors – it’s great! I also love it when the sun is shining and the weather is hot!

I know moving classes and getting a new teacher can seem quite scary and you’ll probably feel a little bit nervous too, but I promise we will have an AMAZING time in year one! Our year together will be filled with lots and lots of fun and laughter… and learning of course!

I look forward to seeing you all soon!
