Dolphins have had another busy week! Here are some of the games and videos we have enjoyed using.

Literacy:

In literacy we have been practising using expanded noun phrases. We’ve been trying hard to remember commas in a list, capital letters for proper nouns, subordinating conjunctions and to use a posh, expert voice for our informative sentences.

Maths:

We’ve been learning about the coins (up to 50p). We have been making amounts to buy things from our shop, and we have also been solving some money problems.

Science: 

We have been learning about life cycles. We loved watching the caterpillar turn into a butterfly and the frog spawn developing into an adult frog.
