End of year ๐Ÿฅบ

Hello again everyone This will be the last blog now as we finish for summer this weekย ๐Ÿ˜Š

It has been the strangest summer term anybody can ever remember!

Thank you all so much for your support with weekly calls, paperwork etc.

It has been a pleasure to teach all of the children this year, we have missed them very much over the past few months.

We would like to wish Olli and Subhaan all the very best as they move to their new school in September. Dragonfly class will not be the same without you!

ย We would like to wish you all a safe and happy summer, hopefully the sun will shine at some pointย ๐Ÿ˜Ž

We have included a few activities you may like to do over the summer break, have fun whatever you do, and we will see you in September.


Very Best Wishes from Sharon and Dragonfly staff.

Wind ๐Ÿ’จ

Hello everyone
We hope you are all staying well and happy ๐Ÿ˜Š

It has been very windy hasn’t it! Yesterday the fence in Sharon’s garden blew down!

Why not have a go at these wind themed activities?

Listen to the story of The Sun and The Wind

Make a fan


Get really creative and make a wind chime!


Or how about catching clouds in your living room using a fan as the wind and balloons as the clouds โ˜๏ธ


For something a little different head over to our Home Learning Site, where you will find lots of music ideas from our music teacher Bev. The latest of these is Big Top musical Adventures.

Whatever you do stay safe and have fun Dragonflies, remember you can send pictures to charman@oakwood.walsall.sch.uk and we can put these on the blog too.

Love from your teachers xx

Rainy day ๐ŸŒง

Hello everyone it is good to hear that you are all well.

It has been very wet and rainy this week so why not listen to songs and stories about the rain?

Get your wellies on and splash in puddles, that is so much fun! 

You could also make rain shakers by filling up empty cartons and packets with rice and shaking to make rainy day sounds. 


Are the sounds different if you fill one container to the top and only half fill another?

Here are some other lovely ideas..



Have fun everyone, stay safe 
Love from all of your teachers.

Sunshine ๐ŸŒž

Hello Dragonflies how are you all?

We hope you are all enjoying the lovely sunshine!

I know that lots of you have got your paddling pools out.

The warm weather is set to stay do how about lots of sunshine themed activities this week?
You could play in sand, have a treasure hunt to see if you can find anything yellow.

Can you see what Sharon has found?

On a Farm ๐Ÿท ๐Ÿ” ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸŒพ

Hello Dragonflies

We hope you are all safe and well.

Gursukh has sent some wonderful picture in of him having fun in the sun with his sister in the swimming pool and creating a water slide to cool himself down with all this lovely weather we have been having

This term we would have been learning all about People Who Help Us.

You could have some fun finding out about farms this week. Why not plant some seeds, and have fun watering them!
Just like Charlotte has in her garden.

Dig for vegetables in soil or cocoa pops, make mud pies, taste a new fruit or vegetable, songs and rhymes about farms and farmersโ€ฆ.

We have also added some craft ideas

Our music teacher Bev has uploaded some new songs onto Charanga, az well as these Y6 songs you may like to look at.


Well done to you all for being so good for your mums and dads. You are all doing brilliantly Dragonflies ! Love from your teachers ๐Ÿ™‚

Hello Dragonflies!

It was Jaydenโ€™s birthday on Friday !All of your friends and teachers hope you have a lovely day!

Our music teacher Bev has put some more songs about people who help us onto Charanga.

Nurses and doctors are helping us all at the moment.

They wear different shades of blue uniforms depending on who they are. ๐Ÿ”ต๐Ÿ‘•

We thought you might like to spend some time this week finding out about the colour blue. Here are some ideas๐Ÿ’™

How about having a blue bath ?

https://pin.it/319qU3H here is a link to make blue ocean foam soap ๐Ÿงผ

How about some blue sensory play using blue food colouring to turn the foam blue and making blue ice cubes ๐ŸงŠ.

Here is a little story about a little blue truck. ๐Ÿ“–

Who can recognise the different animals in the story ? Itโ€™s a lovely story about friends helping friend , just like all our Little dragonflies do. ๐Ÿด ๐Ÿฆ† ๐Ÿท ๐Ÿ” ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿฎ

Exploring nature ๐Ÿƒ ๐Ÿœ ๐ŸŒท

Hi everyone,
Happy VE day, we hope you have a lovely day in the sun with your families.

Why not gather dome grass, leaves, flowers and make pictures with these?

Or how about going on a scavenger hunt in the garden and collecting lots of different things.

After collecting lots of different Items on your scavenger hunt how about seeing if they float or sink.

Sharon is having afternoon tea with her family, and her new doggie!

Sherri has sent some lovely pictures of how she will be celebrating too.

Charlotte has been celebrating her birthday ๐ŸŽ‚

It was lovely to speak to your mummies this week and hear that you are all well and happy.

VE Day ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง

Hello everyone, we hope you have had a good week and managed to dodge the showers!
Here are some ideas for indoor activities to keep you busy ๐Ÿ

Have a go at making a Memory Box of this strange time, Fill it with photos, work you have done, pictures of your friends, think you like, and so on. Then put it away. When we go back to school we can all look at them!

Also next Friday is very special day. It is V E day, perhaps you can find out more about this.
You could learn the signs of the colours red, white and blue, and do lots of red, white and blue crafts.

Remember though that these are just ideas, as always the important thing is that you stay safe and happy.

If you have any more pictures you would like to send to us, please do, we love looking at them.

Stay safe Dragonflies love from all of your teachers ๐Ÿ˜Š
