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.

Letโ€™s learn about the colour Blue ๐Ÿ‘•๐Ÿ‘”๐Ÿงข๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿฆ•๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ”ต

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

Have a lovely week everyone and stay safe, love from all of your teachers ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿซ

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.

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

People who help us and Transport ๐Ÿš˜

First of all thank you to my amazing team for the lovely birthday video ! I have had a lovely day so far opening my cards and presents.

I am looking forward to my cake too ๐Ÿ˜Š

We hope our little Dragonflies are all keeping well, it was lovely to speak to your mummies this week. You have all been making the most of the good weather and staying active which is so important.

This is our first week of the Summer term, our topic is People Who Help Us and Transport, maybe you could have a go at some junk modelling, and make a lorry or an ambulance?



Lorry drivers are getting our food to the shops and the people who drive the ambulances are taking poorly people to hospital.

You could also think of ways of helping your mums and dads

Take care everyone and we hope to see you all very soon. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐ŸŒž๐ŸŒˆ

It has been lovely to speak to your mums and dads, and to hear that you are all staying safe and happy. ๐Ÿ 

It’s good to hear that you are staying active and have managed to enjoy the sunshine. โ˜€๏ธ


We have been busy thinking of other ways you can keep busy, here are a few Easter and spring ideas. ๐Ÿฃ
