That is the end of the half term. This is our first full half term in a long time and the children have been amazing. I love this topic because the children reflect on what is going wrong in our world and are then inspired to make a difference. Plastic pollution and the bee population declining is a serious problem and the class have wanted to help change this. We now have one half term left. The curriculum leafleat and knowledge organiser are above, so please have a read and talk to your children about the keywords and what they mean.  We hope you all have a great half term. Don't forget that the first day back is a dress up day. An email has been sent out about what to wear. See you in June!

What a great way to end our topic, 'Wonderful World'. We started the day having a chat from Helen about swifts, and how they migrate from Africa. We also had Caroline in, who spoke about our concerns for our local area. She also taught us how to make 'seed bombs', which will help the bees in our local area. The class have been brilliant this half term and so inspired to make the world a better place. We then finished the day by reusing objects to create new ones. are amazing!

DOLPHINS....WE HAVE A PROBLEM! We went for a walk around our beautiful area and found some things that caused us to be concerned...RUBBISH! We will now need to write a letter to our local council discussing what we have seen today.

World maths day: We had a great day enjoying maths, maths and more maths. The children looked fantastic in their maths outfits! Thank you all for your donations. WE LOVE MATHS!!!!

Dolphins, I am so proud of you. This term has been very, very different. I haven't seen you guys for most of this term and half of this half term. You have had to move onto online learning and did so amazingly. In one of the toughest times, you guys were so resilient. I hope you all have a brilliant time over Easter. Please try to keep on reading daily on Bug Club and listen to those bedtime stories. I am looking forward to getting back to school and carrying on your learning journeys!

I just would like to say how proud I am of the Dolphin class. This year will be a year that we will never forget and the children have gone through so much throughout 2020. However, they have been such brilliant learners through both half terms and have all made such amazing progress as learners. I hope you all have an amazing Christmas and a happy New Year. Thank you parents and carers for your continued support this year. I look forward to seeing the class back in school on Monday 4th January.

We are really proud of our children. We have been learning about Remembrance and the importance of remembering. We stood perfectly for the two minute silence. Thank you for all the donations we have received for the poppy appeal through the Royal British Legion.

WHAT A BRILLIANT DAY! Lisa from 'Creature Teachers' came in and spoke to the class about beared dragons, milk snakes, barn owls and other animals. It was such a fantastic opportunity for the class. All the children came out full of new information. Thank you Lisa for today.

Welcome back! It has been great to have a full class back! My name is Mr McElhenny and I am the Dolphin Class teacher. We also have Miss Mole and Mrs Jones who are the class teaching assistants. The children have been amazing, coming in and learning all the new class routines. I have enjoyed getting to know my new class and they have all settled in beautifully. We are going to hold a virtual 'meet the teachers', so next week we will let you know when this is online. This will give you advice about reading, homework and other questions normally asked at this time of the year. If you have any questions before then, we can chat before or after school outside the classroom door. Please have a read of our curriculum leaflet and knowledge organiser, which has been emailed to you, to find out about our new topic next week. I will put them above this paragraph and send them out on paper.
