Dolphins 2021-2022

We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. It has been great to have the children back. However, they have come back to school to find a huge problem. Mr McElhenny has had a very unhealthy Christmas and has become very unhealthy. We are going to have to think about what he needs to do to become more healthier. We will work towards producing a fitness DVD. Good luck children, Mr McElhenny needs you!

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!

We also had a surprise guest after the recorder concert. Safe to say the children were very happy!

What a busy week this has been! We have performed the Christmas play four times and then finished the week with a recorder concert. I was able to watch the recorder concert and I felt incredibly proud of my class. They have come on so much from September! They are all amazing!

Well done to all those who attended the football festival! You represented our school for the first time in two years.

We had a wonderful trip out to return our Bog Baby to his natural habitat! We were sad to say goodbye but know that it was best for our Bog Baby!
