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 Spring Term, the children will be using our Talk for Writing Skills to look at how we write recounts. Children will be using their own experiences about their Christmas Holidays, we will then look at our whole school trip to the theatre to watch the pantomime 'Dick Whittington'. After that we will be using our imagination to write a recount about the Wright Brothers and thier first flight.
Later on in the term, the children will be writing poetry using the senses looking at the poem "Night Noises in the City".
Our topics this term is 'How high can we Fly?'
Throughout the term we are going to learn about the invention of powered flight and how it has changed people's lives. We will be learning about Orville and Edgar Wright, the two American brother, inventors and aviation pioneers and what made them famous.
How has the Wrights Brothers changed people's lives over the past 100 years we wonder?
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 in Year 2 will need to complete at least TWO activities from the grid and the children in Year 1 to complete at least ONE activity from the grid. Written work must be presented neatly in your homework book. Creative work can be presented in any way of your choosing.
