Meet the staff :
The Dolphin Class is taught by Miss Kinver, and supported by Miss Cox.
We are a mixed aged class of Year 2 and Year 3.
During the Autumn term, the children will use their Talk for Writing skills to learn the story of 'Billy Goat Gruff'. The children will make imaginative changes to the story ideas and then use the structures of the original version to create their own.
Later on in the term, the children will be looking at poems relating to water and the seaside.
Our topics this term is 'To the Rescue'
Throughout this topic, we will be developing our understanding of the rescue services, with a particular reference to rescue at sea and how it has changed over the years and the development from their early beginnings.The children will learn about the famous rescue by Grace Darling and the difference with equipment and resources.
This term, the children will experience dance activities in PE on Monday afternoon and on Thursday mornings. However as the weather is starting to become colder and increase rain we encourage children to still go outside and therefore please make sure children are fully prepared for this.
On Thursday mornings Dolphins Class will enjoy Outdoor Learning led by Miss Hicks.
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 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. Homework will be discussed on Fridays, but it will not be necessary to bring in the work until the date on the sheet.
Please find the homework link below:
We will also spend weekly spellings home every Friday which will be tested on Thursday morning. This will include 5 spellings and a challenge word.

Each week, Sparkle will go with a different child from Dolphins class to see what adventures they get up to.
Sparkle goes home with a diary where these adventures can be logged through photos, drawings and writing.
Sparkle will go home every Wednesday to be brought back in the following Tuesday so we can hear what Sparkle has been doing.
