Year 1 - Miss Patino 2018 - 2019

Miss Patino

Y1 teacher KS1 manager

Hello, my name is Miss Patino and this is my first-year teaching at Longton Lane. I am delighted to be teaching Year 1 this year, and leading Key Stage 1 here at Longton Lane.

Year 1 is a busy, exciting and challenging year filled with many changes as the children move from Foundation stage into Key Stage 1. We have designed an exciting and engaging curriculum that will bring out each child’s creativity. As a Year 1 teacher, my aim is to make learning fun, and provide a happy, secure and challenging environment so that each child will reach their full potential and become confident and independent learners. I am very lucky to be teaching an enthusiastic class that enjoys new challenges and practical learning experiences. We are also very lucky to have our learning assistant, Mrs Myers working with us.

Thank you for visiting our class page. I hope you find this to be an invaluable resource to keep up to date with all the exciting and wonderful things we are learning about in Year 1 this year.

If you have any worries or concerns please, do not hesitate to come and see me at any point during the year.
