What's happening in Derwent Class?


Welcome to existing and new pupils and parents to the Derwent Class page. Here you will find useful information about what is going on in the classroom, homework tasks, educational visits, copies of letters, timetables, dates and so on. I try very hard to keep it up to date but please let me know if you can't find the information you need.

We also like to share good news about how our pupils are doing and show you photos and examples of our great work. So do check out this page on a regular basis. 

Reading Books

Try to listen to your child read at least 3 times a week-it really makes a difference to their progress in reading and accessing other areas of the curriculum.

Please bear with us as we get to grips with new systems around changing reading books, which includes quarantining the book on return. When your child has completed their book we will change it as quickly as possible but it may not be immediate. If they bring the same book home, please re read it with them, or discuss the story, or read another book from home. 


Our PE is on Friday afternoon. Please send your child to school dressed in their PE kit every Friday.


Homework day is Friday. I will set a spelling and times tables activities and the children need to complete them by the following Friday. To avoid paper passing between home and school,  homework tasks will be set and marked using the Purple Mash platform. The children are familiar with this and use it regularly in school. If you have problems accessing the site please let me know so I can make alternative arrangements. 


Derwent Class are really enjoying using the ipads. We use Times Tables Rock Stars and Purple Mash to support skills development across the curriculum. We're also using Purple Mash as a basis for our computing skills learning.  Please encourage them to visit these sites at home and try out different activities-not just the set tasks. Cards with log in details will be sent home during the first week back.
