Dragon Class is a Key Stage 2 class with 11 children and 4 staff. Nicola Hodgson (Teacher) is supported by Shelby, Karen and Jo. 

This term the topic is Home and Away. We are excited to learn about lots of different countries and comparing them to the UK. 

Topic Web for Home and Away.

Dragon Class visited the GAIA exhibition at Hartlepool Town Hall. The instillation is made of NASA imagery of the Earths surface. The children pretended they were on the moon looking down at Earth. We listened to real life commentary from space missions. It was amazing!!!!!

As part of our history topic, we visited Beamish Open Air Museum. We looked at all the houses from the different time periods and compared the features of the houses.

What an amazing day we had canoeing with Summerhill at Cod Beck. We had lots of fun learning how to paddle and steer a canoe!! We saw lots of wildlife including tadpoles and dragonflies.

We enjoyed doing our class assembly. We told everyone all about World Oceans Day and what we need to do to protect our planet.

Wow!! What a fantastic morning we have had celebrating the Queen's Jubilee. We dressed up as members of the Royal Family - Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince Harry and Prince Edward. Some of us were the footman and some were the Queen's horses. The whole school walked in a parade with Throston school cheering us on all the way. When we got back to school we had a picnic lunch outside and played lots of games. God Save Our Queen!!!

We have been doing lots of different activities in school and with Throston Primary to celebrate The Queen's Jubilee. Here are some photos of us making stamps and visiting Throston School to make a beautiful floral silhouette of The Queen.

We really enjoyed a trip out rock climbing with Summerhill. It was a challenge we all took on together encouraging each other throughout. After climbing up the rocks we played games and went through caves. It was amazing!! Well done Dragons!!!!
