Rock Relics and Rumbles: The attached Knowledge Organiser contains all of the key learning the children will be covering in the topic up to Easter. a copy will be sent to you in the Home Learning books.

Happy 2023!

I hope that you all had a good break. My thanks to those who were so kind as to give me a present. My family certainly enjoyed the seasonal spirit of sharing the consumable items!

Our topic for the Spring Terms is Rocks, Relics and Rumbles.

In the Rocks, Relics and Rumbles project, the children will learn about the different layers of the Earth, including plate tectonics and their potential effects on the Earth's surface. They will investigate different types of rock to learn about their uses and properties. They will also investigate soil and fossils, including learning about the work of Mary Anning. They will have the opportunity to use maps to learn about the lines of latitude and longitude and a compass to learn about the cardinal and intercardinal points. They will also learn about volcanoes, earthquakes and tsunamis and the long and short-term consequences that these can have.

English and Maths

Our foci for maths will be multiplication, length and perimeter, while in English we will be focussing on a fiction text in the first Spring Term and a narrative in the first person for the second Spring Term.

Our multiplication facts will concentrate on the combinations which have scored the least well on TT Rock Stars for the chosen table or tables for the week. A printed version of the multiplication facts of the week will also be in the children's Home Learning books.

Thank you for all your support and I look forward to seeing everyone on Monday 31st October.

Welcome to the 2022-2023 academic year

A big welcome to the children in Year Three and the two new members of our class. For those of you who are new to Dragonflies, I endeavour to post the spellings and tables for the week by the end of Sunday. This year they will also be included in the children's home learning book, which will be sent home every Tuesday and we ask that they reappear in school by the following Monday. I will also be including a home-learning activity which will usually linked to our topic for the term. [It is Invasion, by the way.]

As you will see from the newsletter, children will be wearing PE kit on Mondays and Wednesdays. from Monday 12th September Dragonflies will be going swimming. More on this during the week.
