Giraffes & Crocodiles


Teacher: Mrs Cross

Welcome to the Giraffes & Crocodiles Class!

Early Years is your first step into an amazing learning journey through Brookside Academy. This year will be full of lessons and fun activities helping to learn about phonics and early reading, maths and much, much more. A particular highlight will be a trip to Wookey Hole Caves in the summer term.
