Welcome to Dragonfly Class!

This is a Geography unit studying Kenya in Africa. The class will learn about life in Kenya, what animals are found in Kenya and compare life there to life here.
Staff in Dragonfly Class
We are very lucky to have Mrs Delahoyde in our class. She will be supporting the class with their learning every morning.
The children are able to change their books when they come into school on their allocated day (as allocated in their reading records). The children should have read 5 times each week, during their book change day, either me or Mrs Delahoyde will check that their reading record has been filled out and signed.
Please ensure all uniform, PE kits (and individual items), bags, hats and scarves are named. We endeavour to return as much as possible but without names it 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. Your child will receive a fresh piece of fruit or vegetable daily for their mid-morning snack. If you would like your child to have milk please contact the office for further details.
Homework will be set on Edshed each Friday to be completed by the following Friday. Spellings will also be sent home on a Friday and the following Friday the children will do their spelling test, please ensure spelling books are in school each Friday for this.
If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me either through the school office or email me at email@example.com
