Welcome to the Dolphins class.
Join in our learning!


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

This half-term our topic is Potions! Please visit the curriculum page to see what we will be learning. 


In English we are learning how to write effective sentences in a range of narratives. We will be basing this on the story of George's Marvellous Medicine. Within our English lessons the children will have key experiences to help enhance their learning. We started off our instruction writing with making our own potions!

In Science we have been learning about plants and trees. The children were thrilled to plant their own trees in the Autumn term. After the holidays, the children were extremely excited to go into our outdoor learning space and look closely at different plants and trees using magnifying glasses. They even took rubbings using crayons and paper to look at different parts of the leaves and bark. 

 In Maths this half-term we are learning about multiplication and division. We have been using lots of resources to show equal groups and how they can be written as repeated addition and multiplication sentences.

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.
