Welcome to Dragonfly Class!
Staff in Dragonfly Class
We are lucky to have excellent, hard-working staff in our classroom. Mrs Dowd is one of our teaching assistants and she will be in class every morning to support the children and their learning. Miss Cole will also be supporting the class every morning.
The children are able to change their books on when they come into school on their allocated day- These days are below. Before they do this, both books they have read previously needs to have be recorded into their yellow reading records. When your child changes their books, Mrs Dowd will be checking their reading records for 5x reading. Every time your child reads 5 times a marble is placed in our jar. When the jar is full, the whole class will get a treat!
Book Changing Days:
St David- Monday
St Patrick- Tuesday
St George- Wednesday
St Andrew- Thursday
Please ensure all uniform, PE kits, bags, hats and scarves are named. We endeavour to return as much as possible but without names this makes returning lost things really difficult.
Drink and fruit
Your child will need to bring in a named water bottle each day. We are able to refill the bottles if needed.
