Welcome to Dragonflies!

Hello and welcome to Dragonfly Class.  We are a 1/2 class and always fly high with our learning.  Our Teacher is Mrs Jeffries and our Learning Support Assistant is Miss Smith.


PE is on a Monday and a Thursday. Please ensure that the correct PE kit including shoes for outside games are always in school. Mrs Jeffries has her PPA time on a Thursday afternoon when the class will be covered by Mrs Slater and our brilliant HLTA team.


Could you help with reading or creative activities?  If you have any regular spare time we would love to hear from you.


Maths homework is given out on a Thursday and needs to be returned by the following Wednesday. Spellings are given weekly on a Friday. Please continue to support your child with daily reading and with learning their spellings. However learning happens every day at home when you talk with your child about their day and share with them some of the fantastic learning that has been happening at school.


Our door is always open after school if you have any queries.


Forest Detectives


We are really excited about the things we are investigating in our forest detective hut! Maybe we will spot an interesting garden bird as we peek through the binoculars and check our bird spotters guide. Perhaps we will be able to discover the origins of the amazing artefacts we have hidden behind our secret feelie boxes. If we are really lucky we might even catch a passing bug or butterfly!


Do you think you would be able to build a forest out of a bag of junk? That is the challenge we have on our 'tinkering table' for this topic. How can we create trees, bushes and then forest creatures out of cuboids and cylinders? we are determined to persevere and not give up. We will try and post a weekly update.

The Great Fire of London


We had a brilliant drama workshop with Ben from Tree House Theatre Company. We were able to act out the main events that contributed to the spread of the fire. If Samuel Pepys had not written everything that happened in his diary that we would not know so much about this event from 350 years ago.
