Welcome to Delta!
Hello, my name is Miss Dunning and I am the class teacher. We are a mixed ability lower KS1/2 class with 8 pupils. We are supported by Miss Sage and Mr Burquest, who will be leading our interventions, supporting and motivating us to become the best learners we can be!

Optimism is the way you see and think about what is happening around you and to you. It is looking for the good in each situation. It is expecting things to go well. It is thinking good thoughts even when things are going bad. It is having hope and faith. It is believing that you can make things better. At Hope we believe that this mindset will support and motivate our pupils.
On launch day the children took part in a variety of activities that showed them, that they have the power to be optimistic. Throughout the current term we will give the children opportunities to put this into practice. Allowing them to understand 'If I try, I can'.
Each term we will focus on another core value that supports us in becoming well rounded, life-long learners.
Children learn to love the sound of language before they even notice the existence of printed words on a page. Reading books aloud to children stimulates their imagination and expands their understanding of the world. It helps them develop language and listening skills and prepares them to understand the written word.
Even after children learn to read by themselves, it's still important for you to read aloud together. By reading stories that are on their interest level, but beyond their reading level, you can stretch young readers' understanding and motivate them to improve their skills. We are more than happy to supply families with books to read at home. As the year progresses and the children become more confident we will be sending home reading records to document their reading and ensure the children are making expected progress.
Our goal is to motivate children to want to read so they will practice reading independently and, thus, become fluent readers.
All pupils receive interventions which are based on individualised learning plans. These support and adhere to their individual needs in both curricular and non curricular activities. Interventions ensure that all children are embraced into our school and are given opportunities to build relationships and progress in their learning. As a school we use Read Write Inc. to support early reading and writing. This is a multi-sensory approach that has proven very successful and pupils really enjoy.
All pupils will also receive sensory sessions in our sensory circuit room, every morning to help settle pupils into the school day.
A homework planner (please see below) will be given out at the beginning of each term so that you can see what is expected during that time. Pupils can pick any activity to complete each week as homework, in any order. They must bring one piece of completed homework into school every Monday.
Miss Chloe will be returning to Hope School this term. Delta will be attending aerial ninjas sessions once a week to learn new moves and improve their core strength and balance.
The children will also be receiving an additional PE lesson on a Tuesday. During this lesson the children will be give opportunities to build their hand-eye coordination, gross motor skills and team work abilities.
