Dolphins Newsletter - Spring Term 2

Welcome back! I hope that you have all had a fantastic break and are raring and ready to go! Our new topic will be ‘The Scented Garden’ this half term.

Tiptoe through the tulips as your senses discover the blooming foliage and enchanting fragrances of flowers and herbs. Round and round the mulberry bush we go, planting bulbs and seeds and then watch them grow beneath sunshine and showers. Explore the astounding world of the scented garden, but be careful, there are some wild and dangerous plants out there that do astonishing things. Don't touch them. Use the marvellous properties of plants, flowers and herbs to make an exceptional gift for somebody special. Everything is coming up roses. Why not grow your own? During our maths lessons this half term we will be looking at Number and Place Value. To support this we will be using ‘White Rose Maths’ as well as other whole school interventions such as ‘Numicon’.

During our spelling, punctuation and grammar lessons we will continue to follow ‘Read Write Inc’ to support the children and to develop their phonetic knowledge. This term your child will swim once every two weeks alternating between swimming and RE on a Wednesday afternoon. This means your child will get longer in the swimming pool.

As always if you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the team via the methods provided in this Newsletter.

Thank you for your continued support. Mr Hylton and the Dolphins Team
