Welcome to Dragonfly Class.
On this page you can find information about what we are currently learning in school and what the children can do to develop their learning at home.
Our topic this term is ‘Imagine’. We have begun by exploring dreams, and the children have created some wonderful setting and character descriptions based on a short animated film called ‘The Dream Giver’. In addition to this we have explored our most exciting dreams and we are currently turning these into a piece of fictional narractive. Despite only being back for a short while, they have really embraced this topic, and I can’t wait to see the children’s brilliant beginnings homework!

We are now using a website called ‘TT Rockstars‘ for times table homework. The children have been given individual logins which they can use to practise their times tables online. Once logged on, children should go to the ‘Garage’ section of the website. I have scheduled each child’s times tables so that they receive questions linked to the tables they are currently learning. This will be edited as their speed and the amount of correct answers increases.
If your child has lost their login, please contact the office and I will re-print their login.
In addition to this, there are some fantastic apps and interactive games to help the children with their times tables:
The children need to read a minimum of 4 days a week for a minimum of 20 minutes each time. They need to record evidence of their reading in their reading journals which will be going home next Monday. The journals must be in every Monday to be checked by the teacher.
Below I have attached links to 100 recommended reading books for years 3 & 4.
Please see the year 3/4 spelling list below. We encourage you to help your children with these spellings in any way you wish.
