Delightful Dolphins

Welcome to The Delightful Dolphins Class Page!

Welcome to your new classroom...

This is the gate you will be dropped off at. You will say goodbye to your grown up and Mrs Lenham will be standing here to greet you.

This is where you will hang your coat. Mrs West will be in here to help you find your peg. The boxes at the bottom are for your PE kit, but for now we can't bring PE kit into school. Instead, please come to school in weather appropriate sports kit on our PE day, every Friday.

This is inside our classroom. You will each have a tray to keep your book bag in. The box on top is to store our water bottles (please don't forget to have them labelled with your name). You may also bring a healthy snack to eat at break time.

And finally...

Hello and welcome to the Delightful Dolphins! My name is Miss Davis and I will be your class teacher in September. I have been working at Long Row for seven years now, I spent four years teaching in Reception before moving into Year One. I live in a village just outside of Belper and enjoy spending time going on adventures with my dog, Lobo, horse riding, baking cakes (and eating them!) and going to the gym. I am getting married over the Summer so my name will be Mrs Ellks when you return to school, but I'll answer to both! It'll take me some getting used to, too! 


Our aim is to ensure that children have a smooth transition from Reception to Key Stage One. The Year 1 curriculum builds upon and extends the experiences that the children have had in Reception. At the start of the year we will focus on settling in, re-establishing friendships and getting used to our new learning environment. There will still be plenty of opportunities to play, as we continue to value play highly for holistic development. 


I will be spending some time in school over the holidays to get everything ready for us to start back. When our classroom is ready, I will post some pictures on here so please check back in a couple of weeks.


I have met with your Reception teachers and they have told me how fabulous you all are, so I am really looking forward to meeting you all in September! Until then, have a fantastic summer!! 


Love Miss Davis smiley




Hello From Mrs Lenham:


Hi everyone,


I am very excited to be working with you all next year! 


I have worked at Long Row for 11 years, in lots of different classes. I have 3 dogs, Charlie, Lexi and Alfie and enjoy taking them for long walks. I love to read, bake and even enjoy ironing!


Have a super summer and I look forward to seeing you all in September. 

Hello from Miss Boot:


Hello Dolphins,

My name is Miss Boot and I will be joining you in your new classroom in September. Some of you will know me already from my Thursday afternoons with you in FS2. I am really looking forward to seeing all of your smiley faces again!


Like many of you, I live in Belper so if you see me around over the holidays then make sure you give me a wave! At the weekends, I love to go on family walks with my two daughters, Grace and Martha and our energetic dog, Missy! We also love going on camping trips and exploring new places.


I hope you all have a lovely summer holiday and I look forward to seeing you all in September.
