Welcome to the Dolphins class.
We plan to have a great year!


General Information


Home Readers

We aim to read with the children as a guided group at least once a week to aid in word recognition and phonic skills. We then read as a whole class each day to develop stamina for reading. The children also take part in written comprehension and inference to develop understanding.


Phonics and Spelling

The children are streamed into phonics groups based on their phonic level. They will then receive and be quizzed on specific spellings based on their learning that week.


Mental Maths

The children will also receive Maths Homework with their spellings each week. We encourage parents to practice specific Maths skills as they will also be quizzed on these once a week.



Our P.E. day is on a Thursday afternoon. Please ensure your child has both an indoor and outdoor P.E. kit.



Our current slot is on a Thursday afternoon. We are currently looking for a parent helper to assist us with Library. If you feel you can spare some of your time, please come and speak to myself or Mrs Irvine. 

Our Learning

In Maths this term we have been learning about place value.

On a Friday the children are allowed to bring in a book of choice for our weekly Reading Challenge. This is to help build stamina for reading.
