Welcome to Shackleton Class!


Our class is named after the British explorer Ernest Shackleton, an incredible man who showed great determination and dedication during very difficult conditions.

Miss Fratczak, Class Teacher


Hello, I am Mrs Fratczak, and I am the Class Teacher in Shackleton Class. 

I love reading books, and my absolute favourite is "Matilda" by Roald Dahl.

My favourite thing to do at school is reading, history and science.

Hello I am Mrs Coombs and I am one of the Teaching Assistants in Shackleton Class.

In my class  I love reading Julia Donaldson books to the children.

My favourite book is “Room on the Broom “ because it is all about teamwork.

Mr Frankham, Teaching Assistant


Hello, my name is David Frankum and I am one of the Teaching Assistant in Shackleton Class as well as being the Art Specialist at the school.

I love to inspire creative minds, whether it be within the class, in the art room or in other areas of the school.

I love all types of art but my favourite piece at the moment is The Snail by Matisse. I like it for its simplicity, playfulness and sense of design.
