My name is Mrs Martin. I absolutely love working at Quinton Primary School and teaching Year 1. In Year 1, we do a lot of work on Phonics to improve the children’s confidence and to develop a love of reading. One of our class mottos is: ‘Reading it the key to everything’. We also enjoy developing our writing skills as we begin to write at length. I love seeing the children gain confidence in themselves as they progress through the year. We are very lucky to have an outdoor area which we use to enhance the curriculum, for example by growing fruit and vegetables.
