Y1 - Miss Veney & Miss Harwood 2021 - 2022

Miss Veney

Miss Harwood



Hello and welcome to Year One. We are Miss Veney and Miss Harwood and we are the class teachers in Year One, alongside Mrs Clare who supports our class throughout the week. 

I am Miss Veney and I am excited to be teaching in Y1 alongside Miss Harwood.  I will be teaching you at the beginning of the week.  I have taught at Northway since completing my teacher training in 2015.  I trained with the North West SCITT (School centred Initial Teacher Training) specialising in Early Years education. I am extremely passionate about young children’s education believing that the right start to school life is an integral part of a successful learning journey.  I strive to embed a love of learning and believe this will encourage children to become happy learners. In our classroom each child is encouraged to learn at their own pace. They will always be supported, valued, nurtured and listened to.

My name is Miss Harwood and I will be your class teacher at the end of the week.  I have taught a lot of different year groups in other schools but you will be my first class in Northway Primary School.  I love big art projects, creating exciting stories and finding out about other places in the world. In our class you will learn to be more independent as well as learning to work well in a team. Being kind and helping each other to solve problems is a hugely important part of moving into Year One. I’m sure you will be brilliant at all of this. I promise to always encourage you to do your best, to listen carefully and to support you in your learning. As well as building your self-confidence, I will also be there to help you overcome any of your worries.

We will always be here to help you and make sure you love all the experiences in our class. We really want you to be a success and we will always believe in you!

This half term, PE lessons will usually take place on a Thursday but please make sure your PE kit is in school at the beginning of every half term and stays in school.

All pieces of clothing, including school uniform and shoes must be named. Please ensure earrings are removed or covered with plasters on the P.E. day, staff are not permitted to do this for the children.

Food and drink

Every child should have a clear plastic water bottle that they can access at any time during the day. This bottle should be in addition to a lunch time drink, if they are on packed lunches. Your child may bring a nut free healthy snack for morning play. Please ensure that the snack is in their book bag so that they do not have to find it in their lunch bags.

Healthy snack

  • Fruit
  • Bread/toast

Infants also have access to fruit provided by the school.

We have children with anaphylaxis, a life-threatening condition that is caused by a severe allergic reaction to nuts. We ask you to help us protect these children by sending snacks for your child that do not contain nuts. Thank you for your cooperation with this; it is very much appreciated by the families of the children.
