Welcome to Sheppard class

Welcome to Sheppard Class

We are a mixed Year 1/2 class who have a very exciting year ahead. 

Our class teacher is Mrs Murt, and we have support from Mrs Rogers, and Miss Stasik throughout the day. 

Reading is a big focus this year to improve our phonics, fluency and writing. We would appreciate it if you could read with your child daily to ensure they are making progress.

Please follow us on Twitter to find out more about what is going on in our classroom.

If you have any questions, please get in contact with me through the school office.

Thank you

Mrs Murt
