Dragonflies and Swallows


Welcome to the Dragonflies and Swallows area

During the summer term, Year 4 Dragonflies had the wonderful opportunity to work with Miss Irving and take part in Forest School lessons. The children worked on various skills including how to weave using sticks and twigs. The children thoroughly enjoyed using natural materials such as vines, leaves and flowers to create patterns and shapes on the loom.

We loved celebrating Eid in school with our Eid celebration day! We had a delicious meal with our friends and some special guests, and played party games in the afternoon.

Some Year 4 children took part in the Bikeability scheme, and have achieved their Level 1 or Level 2 Award. For some children, this was their first chance to ride a bike and we were so impressed with their resilience and determination!

Year 4 took part in a pedestrian training scheme called ‘Stepping Out’ which is designed to train and provide children with basic road safety skills. The children had the opportunity to use their training to cross roads safely.

As part of their design process for creating an illuminated decoration, Y4 have been investigating the different types of switches that can be added to an electrical circuit. We then made our own push switch and toggle switch.

Y4 Swallows presented their learning on Ancient Egypt to their friends and families in April. They thoroughly enjoyed sharing all of their amazing facts, including how pharaohs were mummified, why the Nile was so important, and why pyramids were built.
