Welcome to the Johnny Duddle Unit. Our Unit is named after the author we are studying within our first topic ‘Open a Book’. Johnny Duddle writes, and illustrates, some fantastic books for children, hopefully by looking at his work we will find some inspiration for our own writing.
The Unit is made up of 2 mixed Year 1 and 2 classes taught by Miss Miller and Miss Burrows. We will be supported by Miss Coot, Ms Rahman, Mrs Worthington, Mrs Evans, Miss Ross, Mrs Bloszyk and Mrs Hare.
