Welcome to Shackadell's Class News!

In Shackadell we have lots of fun, while we learn through our play!

We love learning lots of wonderful new things every day with our teachers Mrs Holmes and Mrs Dean and our lovely teaching assistants Mrs Lyme and Miss Heritage.

 Our teachers spend lots of time getting to know us, finding out what we know and what we enjoy doing to ensure we have a stimulating, exciting environment with plenty of learning opportunities that will challenge and extend our learning.
