Mrs Phelan & Mrs Jackson
Key Stage 1

We are a class of Year 2 children and our teachers are Mrs Phelan (who works Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday) and Mrs Jackson (who works Thursday and Friday). Mrs Jackson is the Design and Technology co-ordinator and Mrs Phelan co-ordinates French. In our class we are supported by Mrs Hussain who is a Higher Level Teaching Assistant. She also does some class teaching.

Dentdale works closely with Ribblesdale, especially for our topic work and school trips.

We have a great covered area adjacent to the classroom so we can work and play outside in all weathers.

We get homework on Fridays. This includes: spelling; mental maths facts such as number bonds, doubles and halves and times tables; and also relating to our topic work. We hope that the children will read at home as often as they can. The class take library books home and need to return them for the following Wednesday (or before!).

In Dentdale we aim to teach everyone how to join their handwriting.

Everybody has promised to try to follow our Class Charter, so that Dentdale is a happy, hardworking, caring and safe place to learn and play!
