Welcome to the Dalmatians class page. Here you can find up to date information about the MAGIC learning that your child will be taking part in during our topics. We have lots of fun learning in Dalmatians and have many MAGIC moments every day. To strengthen our links between home and school we have included some useful links below to provide key information and opportunities for children to continue their learning at home. Share them with your child and ask them to show you all of the fabulous learning that we have been doing in school.
