Mrs Mills is the teacher in our Year One class. Mrs Hinchliffe teaches on a Tuesday afternoon and all day Friday. Our PE day is Tuesday.

Class Saint

St George. Patron Saint of England. Feast day is 23rd April. 

St. George was raised a Christian and always wanted to be a soldier. When he was old enough, he joined the army. The leader of the army decided that everyone in his army must worship him and the Roman gods instead. George refused. Knowing that he would soon be arrested and executed, George gave all his money away to the poor and prepared himself for death. 

St George, pray for us.
