This year group 6 have welcomed a very special newcomer to their class and would like to introduce Stan, our therapy dog. Stan is a Shih Tzu and has been selected to work with group 6 because of his happy, loving and calm nature.

A therapy dog is a dog that is trained to provide affection and comfort to people. Studies have shown that the presence of companion animals can improve the well-being of children and lower rates of anxiety, simply by making the environment happier, more enjoyable and less forbidding.

To welcome Stan, group 6 have created a soft bedding area in the classroom and worked really hard with Rob to build him his own kennel. We will provide more updates about Stan’s progress throughout the year.
