Key Information

Class Charities

Determined Dias (Mrs Marsh and Mrs Tillett) - Derby City Mission 

Helpful Hudgells (Miss Peake) - Children First Derby


Class Books

Each term, the teacher will read at least one book aloud to the class. If your child would like to bring in their own copy of the book to follow as the teacher reads, they are more than welcome to but this is not an expectation. For this term the books will be:


Mrs Tillett – Beetle Boy by M.G. Leonard

Miss Peake - The Lost Magician by Piers Torday

Mrs Marsh - A Pinch of Magic by Michelle Harrison


PE Days

Determined Dias will be going swimming on a Thursday throughout Advent 1. Helpful Hudgells will go swimming after half term, during Advent 2. They will need to bring swimming costume/shorts and a towel.


PE will also take place for both classes on a Wednesday afternoon and a Tuesday afternoon (when they're not swimming). Children should come to school in their PE kits on PE days. Earrings MUST be taken out before the session.
