Dolphin Class (Yr 1/2) - 2018/19

Children in Years 1 and 2 are members of Dolphin Class.

They are taught by Mr Smith and supported in class by Mrs Dorr and Mrs Ives.

We are grateful to our regular volunteers who provide support in developing children's reading.

All of our classes this year are named after endangered animals.

Bottlenose dolphins inhabit tropical and temperate oceans throughout the world. They live in groups numbering about a dozen individuals, and learn at an early age the complex socialisation skills that will prepare them for future survival. Surviving on fish, dolphins work cooperatively to herd and corral their prey to the surface for easier feeding. Dolphins are susceptible to toxins, pollution, and entanglement in fishing gear. (WWF)

Dolphin Class - Reading Café - Wednesday 19th September 2018

A huge thank you to all who were able to attend our reading café.

I know the children really loved the opportunity to work alongside their family members (and vice versa).

The children created some imaginative work and we had some lovely feedback.

'We really liked the stories and being able to take part in class.'

'Love coming into class with the children - we like the classroom.'

'Lovely café - great to see the children working and interacting with the teacher and others around them.'

'Good idea, very engaging - good to see my child confident in class.'
