Mystery Reader!
Key Stage One will be starting ‘Mystery Reader’ from January 2019.

The aim of ‘Mystery Reader’ is to show children that adults love reading too so we would like to invite parents, grandparents or other family members to come into their child's class to read a children's story. This could be a book you particularly enjoyed reading when you were growing up, a current children's book brought from home or a book selected from the school library. The children will not know who is coming into their class for each session so it will be a surprise when their reader arrives.

We will be having ‘Mystery Reader’ sessions on Mondays, 2.50pm-3.10pm. If you would like to come in to be a mystery reader then please speak to Miss Bond or Miss Windle to book your slot.

We look forward to seeing you and hearing your stories!

We had so much fun at St.Pauls Cathedral. We got to explore the cathedral and dress up as fireman, Samuel Pepys and King Charles. We also climbed 257 steps to the Whispering gallery!

We were told about a spotting of a dinosaur here at Cookham Dean! We decided to go on a dinosaur hunt to investigate....

We had so much fun on our school trip to the Natural History Museum. We got to see the bones of all the dinosaurs we have been learning about and learn lots about Sophie the stegosaurus!
