Welcome back. It has been great seeing all the class back together. Welcome to the last half term! I can't believe this is nearly the end of the year. This half term our topic is 'FORESTS'. We are lucky to live near the New Forest and we are going to learn about our local forest, and then compare to rainforests around the world. With this is mind, we have our trips this week to Bolderwood. What a great way to start the half term!
What a fantastic end to the half term! The children really enjoyed celebrating our Jubilee party. This half term has been crazy, especially for our year 2s. They have had to do 4 SATs papers after two very difficult years and did so amazingly. I am so proud of the independent learners they have become. Also, thank you for the year 1s who made space for them to tackle these quizzes. It has been a brilliant topic, 'TREASURE ISLAND'. It all started with our pirates day and ended with our Jubilee party. It is strange to think that next half term is our last half term together. I hope everyone has a lovely half term and a super rest. We will see you on Monday 6th June.
Welcome back to the SUMMER TERM! It was amazing seeing the children in their pirate outfits. We have started the topic, 'TREASURE ISLAND' with a bang.
What a super half term. The children have loved learning about Africa. It all started with Kwame coming in and ended with a fantastic music concert and Easter Bonnet parade. The children loved our story 'Lila and the secret of rain' and they did a great job at retelling the story with their own changes. Along with the new playground, we have had an amazing time! We hope you all have a super Easter break. The new topic curriculum leaflet and knowledge organiser will be up soon, so please read to find out about our next topic. Don't forget that on the first day back, Monday 25th April, we are having a 'pirates day', so we look forward to seeing them dressed as a pirate for their training. HAPPY EASTER!
What a crazy way to end a crazy half term! The children have had to adapt to lots of changes this half term and seeing them do this so well again makes me a very proud teacher. This has been a fantastic half term for me seeing the children tackle learning around our topic 'bodies'. We have worked together to see what bodies need to be healthy, not just physically, but mentally. This is such an important topic and seeing the children so enthused about it, is great. I hope everyone stays safe with the changing weather and that you all have a great half term.
That is the end of the first term. I am so proud with how far everyone in class has come on with their learning. Thinking back to the beginning of September, to now, makes myself very happy. Children, you are amazing. I hope you have a great Christmas and a fantastic New Year! Please have a read above of our curriculum leaflet and knowledge for our new topic. Please go through the knowledge organiser vocabulary and discuss these words with your children. See you in January!
That is the end of the first half term. I am so incredibly proud of everyone in the class! Moving into a new year group is a huge change and they have all adapted amazingly. It has been great to see all the new learning and seeing the class work as a team. I hope you all have a wonderful break. Please take a read of the new topic curriculum leaflet and knowledge organiser to find out what we will be learning during the next half term.
What a fantastic first week! It has been great to see my new class. My name is Mr McElhenny and I am the Dolphin class teacher. We also have Mrs Jones and Miss Russell in the class.

Our new topic will start on Monday 13th and you will see the curriculum plan and knowledge organiser above this that will tell you what we will be learning and how to help your children at home. There is a meet the teacher on Tuesday 14th for year 1 parents and it will be great to see you all then. Our first homework will go out week on Friday 17th.
