Wake & Shake

This year I have introduced Wake & Shake, which all children from Reception - Year 6 take part in. The infants do this in class each morning before phonics and the juniors take part in a whole school session in the hall at 8:50 before the registers are taken. This enables the children to get rid of any morning jitters and be fully focused and ready to learn as well as keeping fit and active. We use GoNoodle for our sessions.
