Dame Ellen Pinsent School

Class of 2018/2019

Welcome to Monkeys class page.  Our class teacher is Mrs McCluskey and our wonderful teaching assistants are Michelle and Hollie.  On a Friday Sandra teaches us.

We have had a wonderful start to the new school year and have enjoyed getting to know each other.  We all know our school golden rules and are working hard everyday to demonstrate our school values.

The School Music Service

Phil comes in every Tuesday to work with us. 

Jo Jingles

Jo Jingles has been visiting up on a Friday. We have sung lots of songs about our topic 'Food through Stories and Song'. The children really enjoy these active music sessions. 

Contact us

If you would like to discuss anything about your child's time in school, please contact us. This can be through their home school books or if you would like to speak to us directly, please call school and Mrs McCluskey will phone you as soon as she is not teaching. 

In our topic we have read stories and sung songs about food. We have read and written about The Very Hungry Caterpillar in English. 

In maths we have counted the caterpillars.

In topic time we have done vegetable printing and matched fruit and vegetables to colours. 

We have read the story of The Gingerbread Man and then we made our own!


Monkeys have been working with Phil from The Music Service every Tuesday morning. They have been learning about rhythm, timing and drumming skills.

Music Sessions

The children are really enjoying the sessions and have showed progress since they started in September. The sessions will continue throughout the year, which is great news for the Monkeys.   

Hickory Dickory’s Playhouse

On Tuesday 11th December Monkeys went to Hickory Dickory’s Playhouse. We had a fabulous time, running around climbing and going down the big slide. If your child is not on many photos, it’s because I could not catch them!
