Dolphin Class Weekly Update 11/06/2021

Welcome back! We have had a great start to our final term of the year. Dolphins leapt in to learning how to multiply 2 digit numbers by a single digit and we have used lots of practical resources to show our understanding of arrays. This has challenged our times table knowledge too. In guided reading we have been focusing our new class book ‘The Fire Maker’s Daughter’ which is starting to look very interesting. This links with our Japan themed approach we are taking for the Olympic topic this term as well as our English this week on the poetry of Japan. We investigated and began to write our own haiku poems. We are super at counting syllables which is a skill that has improved our ability to spell polysyllabic words. Ask your children the pattern to a haiku poem?
