Welcome to an exciting year in Dragonflies class! Mrs Mayo will teach the class Monday am, Tuesday am, and all-day on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Mrs Thomas will teach Y4 maths on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. She will then teach the whole class Monday pm and Tuesday pm. 

 

PE

Our PE days will be a Tuesday and Friday pm. Please ensure that your child has the correct PE uniform and appropriate footwear.

 

Reading 

 

We regard reading as high importance at Peterchurch and encourage children to read at least 5 times a week and that this is recorded in their reading log and signed by an adult. Children who met this expectation will have an additional play once a week where children who need to catch up on their reading will have the opportunity to do so.

 

Times tables

Please ensure that your child practises their tables using TT Rockstars. Your child can also practise using other games/apps or orally if preferred using their homework book. This is important as the children will take the statutory multiplication tables check (MTC) in June 2024. Please see further information about this below. 

 

Spellings 

Please ensure that your child practises their weekly spellings using Spelling Shed. Your child can also practise orally if preferred using their homework book. The children will sit a weekly spelling test every Friday.

 

Please also ensure that your child has a bottle of water and coat in school daily.

Thank you for your continued support, If you have any queries, then please see us at the start/end of the school day, contact us via Dojo or through the school office. 

Thanks,

Mrs Mayo and Mrs Thomas.

A fantastic start to the Spring term with a whole week of Wellbeing focus. During the week,  we took the time to reflect on how we can look after ourselves, we explored which areas we are already doing well in caring for ourselves and what more we can do to further look after our wellbeing. We enjoyed taking part in lots of different activities including: a senses scavenger hunt, circle time games and a Lego challenge. 

Wellbeing Week Dragonflies

 

 In computing this half term, we have been looking into the journey of a computer. We have explored the basic input and outputs, decomposed a laptop and spent time learning all about the purpose of different computer parts.

 Parents/Carers visited Dragonflies for our Reading workshop. We explored different ways to promote and support learning, both at home and in school. We also gave the adults a couple of tasks to complete, which were taken from one of our recent guided reading lessons.

Please see the PowerPoint above to recap anything from the workshop.
