Dolphin Class Weekly Update

01/12/2023

Dolphins have let their musical side shine through this week in Topic. On Monday, we learned about musical instruments that were played in Swing music and the families they belong to. On Tuesday, we got to have a closer look at some of the instruments in each family, with lots of children having a go at playing the different instruments. A definite favourite was unfortunately the drums, which we are not sad to see the back of in Dolphins. Then on Wednesday, we had a go at collaboratively creating our own rhythms and performing these to the rest of the class. 

Over in English the class has finished their unit on The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, which was a very popular unit for the children. Throughout this week we have been writing the dialogue for when Lucy first meets Mr Tumnus and on Friday we progressed onto our long write. In the long write we created our own narratives, going through a portal into another dimension. 

In maths, we have been looking at the most effective methods for addition and subtraction. We have investigated many different ways throughout the week and used a range of resources to support our learning.
