Class 1 - Dragonflies 2013-14

Dragonflies Class Blog 23rd May 2014

The Dragonflies have been carrying on with their Minibeasts topic this week. We have been doing some special ‘best writing’ about different minibeasts. Lots of children wrote some super sentences and words to describe them. Lennon said ‘I liked doing the writing about a fly’.

In our maths work we have been using minibeasts to help us too. Srivatsa said he enjoyed ‘doing the maths in the Forest Area, adding on the minibeasts legs’.

We have also looked at pictograms and tally charts to record all the fruits that The Very Hungry Caterpillar ate. Alfie G, Lilly, Srivatsa and Kara all had a go at their own tally charts to record everyone’s favourite minibeasts. ‘The butterfly is the winner’, Lilly found out!


We have enjoyed finding out some facts about all the different minibeasts. Oliver N remembered that ‘butterflies are camouflaged with their beautiful patterns’. Kara said ‘I liked looking at the minibeast books with Miss Hall’ in guided reading. Can you remember what else we found out?

The Dragonflies have still been hunting for bugs in the garden area. Florence said she enjoyed ‘catching the bugs’ with the bug huts. Wesley learnt a new skill this week – ‘using a pooter’! Perhaps you could ask your child what a pooter is used for?

Srivatsa moved up to gold for his hard work all half term and singing beautifully in assembly – he helped Mrs Hindmarsh remember the words.
The children who moved up to silver this week included Oliver N, George and Louie for trying extra hard in their special writing, Oscar B and Alfie C too for good manners at lunch. Lennon, Alfie C (again!), Alfie G, Isla-Mae and Ellie moved to silver for their hard work in maths.

Finally, the Dragonflies earned themselves a special half term treat on Friday afternoon for super behaviour and filling the jar with cubes. We watched Frozen, with popcorn of course!
