Welcome to the Dolphins class.

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 usually on a Thursday afternoon however this half-term we are fortunate enough to have Inspiration Tree on a Tuesday. Please ensure your child has both an indoor and outdoor P.E. kit for these days. 



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 English, we have been writing non-chronological reports on 'Big Cats'. The children have researched and gathered lots of information ready for their independent write. Here is some of their ideas displayed in the classroom.

Science Week!

Science Week! 1
Science Week! 2
For Science week, the children thought about different scientific journeys that happen everyday and how they can discover Science through their own lives and experiences. They thoroughly enjoyed creating a variety of paper transport and discovering whether they could make it fly!


Maths 1
Maths 2
Maths 3

 In Maths we have been learning about fractions! The children have been recognising, naming and fractions of amounts and shapes. 

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.

The children have been fortunate enough to create community links with Larchfield Manor. They played games and had great fun with some of the elderly.
