Dear families,

We hope you've had a reading-filled week? We've spent a lot of this week doing arts and crafts, and baking! Miss Buchanan taught us how to make butterflies and bookmarks out of origami. It was a lot of fun, and the colouring in calmed us down when we felt like we needed a walk! Maybe you could try?

Miss Belcher has baked a huge chocolate cake - have you done any cooking with your families?

Thank you for completing lots of tasks - we love it when you email the school your learning. 

Keep washing your hands and keep safe indoors, Unicorns.

Miss Buchanan, Miss Fitrat, Miss Belcher and Miss McMaster

Messages from the Staff

Can You Help?

Do you have knowledge or resources about our project?

Could you give some time to come into class to help with reading?

If anyone would like to come into class for a regular session to hear children read, then please let one of us know.

To help develop Green Dragon’s knowledge of Geography, and International Mindedness, each year group will learn about a different country in the world every half term.

We will call the United Kingdom ‘our here country’ and one other will be ‘our there country’.

We will be learning about French schools and how they differ from ours, and how its Geography compares.

If you have any items from or experience of France, please do let us know!

Please do encourage your child to learn about France and then to come in and teach us.

Thank you!
