Spiritus Ad Surgere - Let Our Spirits Soar High

Year 1 - Dragonfly Class

Welcome to Dragonfly Class, our teacher is Miss Stevens

Happy new year & welcome back!

Our Term 3 history enquiry is 'How have toys changed?'. We will be thinking about the toys that we love now and comparing them to the toys children played with in the past. We will learn how to identify changes in toys and how to sequence toys from different periods of time using a timeline. We will also practise using language relating to the past.



Forest School

During Term 2 the children will have the opportunity to learn in Forest School on alternate Friday mornings.  Dragonfly Forest School dates for Term 3 are the 12th January, 26th January and Friday 9th February.


PE days will be Mondays (indoors) and alternate Fridays - non forest school days (outdoors). All children should have a PE kit to change into. It should include a named 'house' T-shirt, shorts/jogging bottoms and a pair of plimsolls/trainers. No earrings should be worn on PE days.

Reading and Homework

Year 1 children are developing their reading skills, and it is very important that they read regularly. Each week they will bring home a phonics reading book that will help them to practise the phonemes (sounds) they have been learning in their phonics lessons. They will earn dojo points for every day they read at home during the week. Please aim to read with your child for 10 minutes every day. Book bags with reading books should be in school every day.

Home learning is given on Fridays and should be completed and handed back by the following Thursday. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please come and talk to me at the beginning or the end of the school day or send me a message on Class Dojo.
