Welcome to Shark Class!
Miss Lyndley will be teaching Shark Class all day Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, plus Friday morning.
Mr. Warren will be teaching on Thursdays and Ms Elsworth on Friday afternoons.
PE for Shark Class will be Monday and Friday mornings so please come to school in your PE kits on those days. Bring something warm to wear over the top on cold days and bring a change of shoes in case your trainers get a bit wet or muddy. We will be outdoors for both PE sessions. Earrings should be removed on these days or, in the case of new piercings, they should be taped over.
I am excited that we will have Forest Schools every Wednesday. The children should wear their wellies for this and may bring jogging trousers to wear for it once the weather gets colder and the ground gets muddier. They should also have a warm waterproof coat.
We will be going outside at breaktimes as much as possible so please make sure you have a named coat and named pair of wellies in school every day. We all know how unpredictable the British weather can be.
For the first few weeks we will take things slowly as you get to know your new class and teachers. We will start off with activities based on the lovely book "Here We Are" by Oliver Jeffers as well as looking at the St Andrew's values of love, trust and perseverance.
