What’s more, Marisa has filmed the a wonderful video of the pupils singing a song called ‘The Lunctime Queue’ – to watch it, just click on the play icon above.

In its latest Ofsted report, Government inspectors praised the school.

In a letter to pupils, they said: “You behave well around the school and in your lessons and you look after each other very well.

“You are really good working in groups and helping each other to learn and you readily help your classmates when they find things difficult.

“Your teachers and teaching assistants take exceptionally good care of you,” they added.

Primary Focus showcases the county’s schools and on our website you can watch videos of pupils learning, singing – and more!

Editor James Mitchinson said: “Primary Focus is proving to be a much-loved part of your Derbyshire Times.

“We’re getting lots of positive feedback from proud schools and parents so if you’re a primary why not get involved?”
