Well done & thank you Dragonflies!

As our first week back draws to a close, I’d like to say a huge well done and thank you to all the Dragonfly children for making our first week so full of fun whilst being very productive! We’ve learned the continents and oceans with balloons, designed art for the village Homegrown Show and written pages of stories whilst cracking some tricky Maths! You’ve all been fantastic in settling in with our new rules and ways of working. A special well done and welcome to Elliot and India who have had settled in beautifully. Thank you for making my week such fun and I look forward to seeing you on Monday (school uniforms due to photographs please) for another week of getting back to it. Happy weekends to you all!

Miss Whit ☺️

Ps. No set spelling or topic homework this week but do try  and get back into the swing of daily reading and record in diaries.

Dragonfly Class – the last day!

Well – you’ve DONE IT!! It’s been the most bizarre end to our year but we’ve finally made it to our summer holidays. So for today, as we always would, I want you to have FUN!

Some ideas:

🌟 Write a letter to your future self! What advice would you like to give yourself for September? What kind of things do you think it would be worth remembering on your first day back? What have you been proud of and what would you like to achieve next?

🌟 Create a piece of art that shows something about you right now; perhaps things you’ve been doing or something to reflect your feelings.

🌟 Bake / cook something to celebrate your final day!

🌟 Enjoy a walk where you can think about all the things you have achieved at Ruyton (you might need a very long walk to remember them all!)

🌟 Watch your favourite film or listen to your favourite music 🎶  I’m loving Moana at the moment!

🌟 Turn off your computer screens… challenge yourself to go make some memories!

Thank you for giving me such a lovely year of teaching. I’ve got such happy memories teaching you all and you’ve just added another year of reasons why I have the best job in the world. I can’t wait to see you all become Owls in September; have a happy, healthy and fun-filled summer and I’ll see you soon.

Lots of love,

Miss Whit xx

 

A message for our Year 5’s

Hi Year 5’s – we wanted to say a huge well done to all of you for everything that you have achieved this year.  You have all been utterly amazing and we are so, so proud of you all.  We are missing you all dreadfully but are looking forward to a time when we can be back together in September.  We know you will be awesome Year 6’s and will continue to make us proud.  Have a fantastic break and we will see you soon

Dragonfly Class – Wednesday 15th July

Good morning all,

Today we will be holding the Year 6 leavers assembly online; I will say a big “good luck” to our Year 6 from you all! I am sure they are all looking forward to their next step and starting Year 7 – the Purple Bubble in school are looking so grown up!

We’re missing you very much in school this week – it is probably my favourite week of the school year but it is not the same without a class full of Dragonflies! I’d love to hear some of your summer plans? I currently plan to pick up my guitar again (which I haven’t practised in ages) and hopefully get away camping with friends 🤞 fingers crossed the sunshine comes back!

Here’s today’s activities:

  1. SpellingsHere are the word mats for each year group in KS2. This week I’d like you to gain confidence in the Y3/4 one then if you’ve cracked many on this list, start to look at some Year 5/6 words.

In Orange Bubble we are going to make a wordsearch with them!

Dragonfly Class – Friday 10th July

It’s Friday! Well done for logging in for another week and I hope you have lovely things planned for the weekend 😊Exciting news yesterday to hear recreational sports will be coming back – I’ve got my fingers crossed I’ll be playing netball again soon… What sports do you look forward to getting involved with?

Here are today’s activities:

2. Maths:

For Friday’s fun challenges, you can spend your time on TT Rockstars or exploring Number Gym.

4. English: ..

 

Writing Challenge!

As we near the end of the term, I’m going to set you a writing challenge each day  to try and produce different types of writing linked to genres we have covered in Dragonflies.

Watch this video:

Rio Olympics

Challenge 5:

Can you create a short story linked to the video… it could involve dialogue between the characters or a cliffhanger ending! Good luck.

Other ideas:

  1. Topic (Ancient Greece – Olympics!)

For a final project have a look at the links below; one shows you examples of Ancient Greek vases – you could carry out your own research to find out more about them.

Can you design your own Greek vase in this style? I’ve attached a template to help you if you need it.

T2-H-4645-Greek-Vase-Olympic-Photo-Pack_ver_1

Have a super weekend, missing you all very much.
