Year 1

Meet the Team

1M – Miss Minton and Mrs Milne 

 

Welcome to Team Year 1!

Hi I am Mrs Akhtar, I began my career at Mill Hill in 2016. I have always worked in Year 1 as it is my favourite year group as we really see the children begin to shine. I have a daughter, who is 5 which helps me to understand how to help her learn and I have a cheeky cat called Yeezy. I have the pleasure of  working alongside Mrs Perry, who worked at Mill Hill back in 2006 for 8 years. She then left to pursue a career in care, but recently decided she wanted to make a comeback and joined the team in January. She has 2 sons who she loves spending time with.

Hi I am Miss Minton, I have worked at Mill Hill for 15 years and have worked across both key stages in that time. I was so excited to move back to Year 1 LAST year, as it is one of my favourite year groups where we watch the children make so much progression in such a short time.  I am passionate about the children having a fun filled creative curriculum planned for them to make them life-long learners. I also run the Eco Warriors committee where we have been awarded the Green Flag from Eco-Schools. I have two gorgeous children; Jackson and Sophia, and a mad dog called Daisy. I am joined by Mrs Milne who has worked at Mill Hill for 23 years. She has worked across every key stage and loved every minute. She has spent the majority of her time in KS2 working with and supporting children with SEN. She is extremely passionate about children’s emotional wellbeing and has studied to the holistic approach to Mental Health. She loves to research any subject that makes us feel good. She is very excited to be working in Year 1, she is sure we will have lots of fun.

This year, our PE day is on Monday. Please make sure appropriate PE kit is in school on that day. This includes the purple Mill Hill t-shirt. It is important the children take part in the sessions. Please see our uniform policy for more details.

In school we use Bug Club and monitor reading on a daily basis. We change our reading books every Thursday. We also monitor homework on a Monday, so please ensure children bring these to school on the appropriate day. We love to see all the amazing work they do with you at home.

We are so excited for all of the learning opportunities we will get to share with the children this year and we try to make it as fun filled and creative as we possibly can.

Our Humanities Topics This year:

Autumn- Toys and The Circus

Spring- Castles and Dinosaurs

Summer-  Where I live and the Seaside

 

Our Science Topics This Year:

Autumn- Animals Including Humans/ changing Seasons/

Spring- Everyday Materials/Changing Seasons

Work hard, dream big and never give up."
