Parrots - Foundation Stage 2 & Year 1

Our Teachers

Our Teaching Assistants

Mrs Scotney is our class teacher. She loves making our learning fun and exciting! We also have two special friends in our class called Mr Parrot and Rosie. They help us with our learning but can sometimes cause mischief in our classroom! Mrs Scotney loves singing and dancing with us during our wake and shake sessions (although her singing isn't that great!) Her favourite author is Julia Donaldson and she has LOTS of her books which she enjoys reading to us.
