Dragonflies Year 1 and 2
Miss Bishop and Mrs Stevenson would like to welcome you to Dragonflies class! If you would like to talk to us we are friendly and approachable, and one of us will be on the playground on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, as well every afternoon.
We are looking forward to a fantastic term of learning this Autumn with our new class. The learning in class is supported by the five Building Learning Powers. We have been encouraging the children to be resourceful (busy bee), reflective (wise owl), resilient (tough tortoise), have good relationships (team ant) and be respectful to each other - linking to our school motto: Respect, Believe, Achieve!

In science we have been looking at living things and their habitats. We learnt that some small habitats are called micro-habitats and these can be home to many plant and animal species - especially mini-beasts! We went to explore our school micro-habitats and observed closely using magnifying glasses before recording our own findings.
As part of British Science Week, we have been looking for ways to reduce the amount of waste we create and ways to recycle or reuse materials. Through this, we have learnt about sound and made our own musical instruments from rubbish!
We have been investigating what makes plants grow. Everybody has come up with their own suggestions of ways to grow the best plants and now we are testing our ideas by changing one variable. Here are our results!
