Dragonfly Class – Monday 1st June

Good morning Dragonflies!

I hope you’ve had a fab week staying safe in the sunshine. I don’t know about you, but I’ve been outside constantly! I’ve enjoyed some lovely long runs over half-term and on Saturday set myself a challenge of completing a half-marathon (that’s 13.1 miles) which took me 1 hour and 50 minutes in the morning sun. I felt very proud of my achievement so rewarded myself with the biggest ice cream I could find 🙂 We also set on the job of building a fence for my chickens who have been VERY naughty… Ginger has decided she’s a house chicken (constantly found at Briar’s bowl), Road Runner has taken to following Ginger into the house too whilst Shirley & Bassey have taken it upon themselves to dig up my flowers in pots! So they’re having a sturdy but roomy run made at the bottom of the garden. I look forward to hearing some of your updates this week – I’ve no doubt there will be some fun Dragonfly stories to tell!

To start your day, why don’t you check out Newsround and catch up on what’s been happening? I watched SpaceX being launched on Saturday and saw the International Space Station pass over shortly after – did you see it?

Here are your learning activities for today:

  1. Reading:  Grab a book and lose yourself for 20 minutes! Then, can you create a picture of one of the characters?

2. Spellings: Access the link below for your year group and learn the set list. You could print the handwriting sheet OR present it in your Homework Pack.

Finally, complete the sheet then mark it but try and work out where any mistakes you made came from using the asnwers.
