Well done Derwent Class! The children earned 25 Class Points for their great work and behaviour. Friday 16th February was their reward day with indoor den building, dodgeball, climbing frame and a film. We had a lovely day.


We have a new member of staff in class.

Miss Tayla Myles is a student teacher from Derby University, who will be working along side Mrs Coote in Derwent Class for the next seven weeks.

Reading in Derwent Class and at home.


We are having a big push with our reading this Spring.

Every child reads in a Guided Reading Group once a week with Mrs Coote, Miss Myles, Miss Oates or Mrs Collins.

They also have at least one individual read with a staff member and most children read at least once more with a volunteer. 

We're also reading lots of non-fiction books about Vikings, and enjoying some comics for a bit of lighter reading. Our Class Novel is "How To Train Your Dragon".


You can really help by listening to your child read their reading book regularly at home.  Please record this reading in your child's planner: children with 3 or more home reads in a week get a merit on Friday and could be our Reader of the Week.
