Our Classroom!

Reading area

In Class 10 we are lucky to have a large library area filled with lots of books for the children to share and enjoy. We have a library monitor who looks after the library and keeps track of all of the books. Children can sign books out of our class library and take them home to share with family and enjoy in their own time.

Our computing area

We have a computer in our classroom which children can use in lesson times and in golden times to do research to help in lessons and complete different tasks. The children have written their own e safety rules which they have promised to stick by to stay safe when using the internet both in class and at home.

Packed Lunches, Healthy Snacks and our School Tuck Shop

At SMAAA we are a healthy school and encourage all children to eat healthy snacks and lunches.
Packed lunches brought into school should consist of healthy food and snacks and should not include chocolate or fizzy drinks.
Children may also bring in a healthy snack to enjoy at break time such as fruit, cheese or toast. Alternatively children can bring in some money to buy a snack from our tuck shop. The Junior tuck shop is run by the Year 6 children and Mr Lewis. They sell a variety of snacks including cheese, fruit and water. The money raised by the Tuck Shop is used to provide awards throughout the year.
