Team Dolphin (Y1/2)
Welcome to Dolphins Class
Welcome to Team Dolphin!
Miss Kaiper and Mrs Fulcher are proud to work with Team Dolphin. We are always doing lots of exciting things in our classroom, and hope to keep you updated with any new information about our learning, so keep checking back in. We also post lots of photos of our learning on Twitter, so make sure to follow @DCOEPS .
In Team Dolphin, the children worked together to create their own 'Golden Rules' at the start of the year. The children decided that it is important that we are kind to others, we keep learning and always try our best and we listen carefully and follow instructions. We should care about our learning environment and do our best to keep it tidy. We also try hard to respect other people and their opinions, and give praise where it is due.
We also work hard to grow our minds using our learning powers, because we know that we have to challenge our brain to make it stronger. If we are struggling, we know that it is not that we can't do it, we just can't do it YET.

This term, our topic will be “London’s Burning!”. We will be learning all about life in the 1600s, comparing our lives to the lives of people in the 17th century. We will be learning about the events which took place during the Great Fire of London, alongside researching significant people from the Stuart Era. In Geography, we will be learning about the human and physical Geography of London, and comparing this to the human and physical Geography of the other capital cities of the UK.
In Science, our topic this term is “Animals including Humans”. We will be learning to name and locate parts of the human body, and begin to make suggestions about what some parts of the body do, as well as name the 5 senses and the part of the body they are related to; and explain how we use each of our senses.
This half term, our RE focus is “What do Christians believe God is like?” We will be using stories from the bible to help us build a picture of the Christian belief of God as the Father, and talk about the ways Christians believe God cares for us.
