Dragonflies, Dragonflies we know who we are... Dragonflies, Dragonflies reach for the stars!
Finding our wings
We have been working hard this week to learn lots about one another. To explore our classroom. To get to know our new teacher Miss Perkins. We have been writing a class and playground charter.
Everything we have been doing is to ensure that Dragonflies are one big family that care and look after one another.

What makes a good Scientist...
This week we have been learning what a good scientist looks like. We are very excited to get stuck into our first science topic in year 3.
Travelling inside Non-Fiction...
Today we did the impossible. Today we took our learning to new realms of possibilities. Today we became literary heroes and used magic to travel inside non-fictions books based around Dragonflies to immerse ourselves in the text. It wasn't without risk but we were up to the challenge lead by our dragonfly chief!
All our traveling and hard work paid of as we managed to gather enough research to write our very own Non Chronological report about Dragonflies.
Maths Place Value
We have been working our maths brains by embracing all there is to know about place value! We are living, breathing, even dreaming... about place value. #knowwhatyournumbersworth
Shakespeare pops in...
O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo? Shall i compare thee to a summers day? Those are the iconic words we heard today as Shakespeare decided to use our classroom to write his next big play.
Even though some of us did think Shakespeare did have a certain resemblance to our very own Miss Perkins... we embraced the day and got to work learning all there was to know about Shakespeare from the very man himself!
We learnt about Shakespeares life, his work, his family and even the impressive amount of words he created that we still use today!
Our First Marble Treat
After working our socks off... we finally earned our first marble treat! We decided as a family to spend our treat making paper crafts. We made lilies out of tissue paper, dragonflies from card and astronauts from paper.
Dragonflies have once again been delving into the maths world using resources to help them such as diens to add and subtract 1, 10 and 100 from any number.
Bar, Bar, Barrrrr modelling
This week we have been learning something new! We have been using bar models in maths! Bar models are really important to help us represent number sentences in a more pictorial way.
We have been perfecting our sketching skills using our recent visit from William Shakespeare as our inspiration. Taking a scene from one of his well known plays Macbeth, we have tried our hand at sketching one of the three witches. #topiclessonsareourfavourite
