Dragonfly Class Monday 11th May


Good morning everyone!

I hope you all enjoyed the VE Day celebrations on Friday in some way; it was a pleasure to see houses decorated with bunting and flags as I enjoyed my morning run – true British spirit! Otherwise I’ve been lost in a book this weekend… it’s one of those books that I can’t put down and I’m totally lost in the story all about children in World War II. I hope you’re all getting the chance to get stuck into some good books too!

This week we are going to begin with a focus on Florence Nightingale whose birthday Is May 12th. She is particularly significant at the moment with the Nightingale Hospitals being built in her name… I wonder why she is so important?

Here are your learning activities for today:

It’s research time! One of the skills we practise in Year 4/5  is note-taking – developing the ability to write key points down which can be used at a later date.

I would like you to make your own Florence Nightingale ‘notes’ page – remember, it doesn’t have to look pretty, but you must be able to read what you’ve put and be prepared to produce something using your notes tomorrow!
