Dolphin Class Year 1 and 2

Welcome to Dolphin Class     


This term Dolphin Class are undertaking A Giant Quest. We will begin by learning, exploring and writing about the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and then begin a Mantle of the Expert project (this is where we work in role as a responsible team undertaking a pretend commission for a pretend client).

For our Mantle work we will receive a request for help from the Queen of Gimli and undertake an imaginary quest to solve her problem. Along the way we will undertake some training about how to be knights, learn about how beans grow, learn how to write letters, create our own towers to reach the giant's castle, persuade the giant to lend us his magic harp and consider Jack's actions. In maths we will help solve problems linked to this, focussing on place value. What an exciting term we have ahead of us!
