Barrow Hedges Primary School

Don't Eat the Teacher (Settling into School)

In this section...

When we start at Barrow Hedges Primary School, it's so exciting as there is so much to learn! We read the story 'Don't Eat the Teacher!' which helps us to understand and follow our class rules.

This theme helps us to learn about our class rules and to be school ready! We learn to listen, walk indoors, use a quiet voice, share, be kind and to look after our toys so we can all feel happy and safe at school.

We listen to the story carefully and discover that the sea creatures forget the school rules. We need to learn the rules to show them what to do! 

We learn that we must listen to the teacher. In the story, Sammy Shark forgot the rule his mummy told him. She said, "Don't eat the teacher!" Sammy didn't listen and gobbled the teacher right up!

We teach Sammy Shark to be good at listening.

We learn that we must walk in school. In the story, Sharon Shrimp ran around so fast she fell over and bumped her head. We teach Sharon Shrimp to be good at walking indoors.

We learn that we must look after our toys and use one toy at a time. Colin Cod threw a toy and hurt Sharon Shrimp in the story. Oh dear! We teach Colin Cod to look after our toys.
