Introduction to our Class


My name is Miss Sheldon and it gives me great pleasure to be the new teacher of the Year 3 Koala class! I am from a city in the UK called ‘Liverpool’ known for its music- The Beatles and two great Football teams - Liverpool and Everton! I am new to Doha British School and can’t wait to get to meet my new class and have a super exciting year together. Before joining DBS I was a teacher for five years in the UK were I was a coordinator for many areas which included; Art, Geography, Mastery Maths, and most importantly Special and Additional Educational Needs. I am also very familiar with the new National Curriculum and Assessment which will enable your child to grow to be the best they can be!

You will also be taught P.E. by either Mr. Johnston or Mr. Shovelton and either Spanish by Mrs. Delgado or Arabic by Mrs. Rana/Mr. Nabih. This year we are also lucky and very excited to have Miss. Verlato in school who will be teaching you Music.

Our first topic this year will be ‘Ancient Egypt’ and I know the children will love learning what myself and Mr Flanagan have planned for them to do. This will be a primarily History based topic in which we will delve into the past discovering all about Ancient Egypt.

All items of clothing need to be clearly labelled e.g. Jumpers/ P.E. Kits. Children must have a healthy ‘snack” or fruit which they can eat during the first morning break. They will also need to bring in their own healthy packed lunch to school with a refillable water bottle. Please ensure that packed lunches do not contain chocolate spreads such as Nutella or any nut products due to allergies.

School begins promptly at 7.00am and registration closes at 7.05am. Please can I stress the importance of bringing/ collecting your child from school so that their education can be maximised. If your child arrives later than 7:05 am, they will be marked late. Active learning begins as soon as they enter the classroom. If your child is late they may miss out on something vital. School finishes at 13:30 so children need to be picked up in the classroom by their parents or designated driver.

Children must have a hat for playtime outside. We operate a ‘no hat – no play’ policy. Children without a hat will be supervised during playtime within the classroom.

During the first few weeks I will arrange an opportunity to meet with me and discuss general information or questions on how we organise homework or anything else school related.
