There are currently 28 children in the class and Miss Ottowell is our teacher. Miss Mercer will also be teaching us too. We are very lucky to have Mrs Limb working with us every day and every morning, Mrs Harfield and Mr Still help us with our learning. Mrs Talts joins us every afternoon and Mrs Jelley will be working with small groups of children too. Mrs Searson teaches Art or DT as well as R.E on Tuesday afternoons.
