Welcome to Dragonfly Class!

Our P.E. day is Monday.
Our library day is Friday.
Our role play is now a Toy Shop. We are enjoying being the shopkeeper as well as choosing and paying for toys. We have written price labels and written orders for toys.
We loved making toys using junk! We had lots of great ideas for what we wanted to make such as a space rocket, a butterfly, a robot, an ambulance, a snake and lots more. Photographs of our toys are in our shop so we can pretend to buy those toys too.
What a busy half-term we have had in Dragonfly Class!
We started the new year by talking about how people celebrate the New Year. We watched the amazing New Year's Eve fireworks in London on youtube. We talked about making resolutions for the new year and the children thought of things they would like to get better at in 2019.
One morning a parcel arrived for us. We discovered that it was from Floppy. It had been his birthday at the weekend but he wasn't allowed to eat human food so he sent it for us to enjoy instead. Everyone loved tasting the birthday cake!
This half term our role play has been a birthday party. We prepared resources and decorations for it. We made paper chains, decorated birthday banners and wrapped boxes to make birthday presents. It's been a very popular part of our learning and lots of us have enjoyed preparing for a party, writing invitations and birthday cards as well as having a party, and of course, singing 'Happy Birthday' to the birthday boy or girl!
We enjoyed the story 'Kipper's Birthday'. Poor Kipper got into a bit of a muddle and his friends were confused when his birthday party was. He wrote to us and asked us to help plan a party for him. We thought about the party food we would like to have and wrote lists about what we would need to buy. We walked to Sainsbury's to buy the food for our party and looked around the shop to find what we needed.
Our party was great fun! We wore our party clothes, played party games, danced and enjoyed our party tea.
The Jolly Postmen and Postwomen
After we had read the story of the Jolly Postman the children chose to write letters to members of their families. They could choose who they wrote to and most chose to write a Christmas message in their letters. They then got to walk to the post box and post the letters themselves. We hope you enjoyed receiving them at home.
Children In Need Ramble
We went for a ramble around Velmead Wood to raise money for Children In Need. We had a super time and even found some puddles to splash through! We look forward to finding out how much money we have raised.
We thought about the importance of poppies and each made our own paper plate one. We could choose what materials we used to make them. It is wonderful how each one is unique and special.
