Welcome to Derwent!
Teachers in our class are:
Mrs Hunter – Class Teacher
Mrs Taylor– Assistant Teacher
We learn in different ways in our class including challenges.
During the week we have the following activities:
PE on a Monday with Mr Jeff. Please could you make sure your child has their PE kit in school on Monday ready for the week. We will also do PE every other Wednesday.
Restorative Circle Time with Miss Rowbotham on a Monday. This is a chance for the children to discuss the topic of the week; celebrate successes and resolve any problems.
French is taught on a Monday by Mrs Ruddle
Music is taught on a Wednesday by Mrs MCartney
Reading – Children take part in guided reading sessions daily. Because we make notes on these sessions in guided reading folders, we do not write them up in the children’s planners.
Individual reading books can be changed by your child daily. If your child keeps forgetting to change their book, please let us know. Reading is part of your child’s homework and they have a challenge to read at least five times a week. Please would you listen to your child read so that you can ask him/her questions and help them improve their understanding and fluency. We would be grateful if you could then write a note in their planner to say they have read to you.
