Meet the staff :
The Dolphin Class is taught by Miss Kinver, and supported by Miss Cox.
We are a mixed aged class of Year 1 and Year 2.
During the Summer Term, the children will be using our Talk for Writing Skills to learn and act out the story of 'How the Tortoise got his shell' The children will explore the story and the main character which in turn they will make imaginative changes which will help them to write their story
Later on in the term, the children will be writing labels, list and captions. The children will recognise the purpose of a poster, write captions to include extra information and write descriptive phrases using interesting and carefully chosen vocabulary.
Our topics this term is 'How things change?'
Throughout the term we are going to think carefully about what you were like as a baby. Look at the differences in your body, compare foot and hand sizes and make a class display. Consider how to investigate what we can hear in the playground.
We are going to explore the historical concepts, vocabulary and representations through exploring the ways in which life has changed over the time of our parents, grandparents and great-grandparents. Develop a chronology of domestic life, clothes, transport, communication methods, toys and books, food and music. Experience a school day as it would have been in the 1950s and create Acoustic Telephones.
Think about the rituals and routines of contemporary lives. Contrast these with those of parents and grandparents, prompted by the questions of ‘Little Mouse’ who lives in the corner of the classroom!
This term, children will have PE on Monday and Thursday afternoons.
On Wednesday afternoon Dolphins Class will enjoy Outdoor Learning led by Mrs Butterworth.
On Friday afternoon, the children have the chance to choose a library book to take home and share.
At the beginning of each half term the children will complete at least TWO activities from the grid. Written work must be presented neatly in your homework book. Creative work can be presented in any way of your choosing. Homework will be discussed on Fridays, but it will not be necessary to bring in the work until the date on the sheet.
