Welcome to the Swans' Class page!
Hello and welcome to the Swans' class page. I hope you are all well and find all of the information you need. If you cannot, do not hesitate to contact the office with a message and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
This year in Swans we are very lucky to have Mrs Daley and Miss Mothersole with us everyday.
Our PE days will be on a Tuesday (outside) and a Thursday (inside) so please ensure that your PE kit is in school on these days. We would advise bringing the kit in on a Monday and taking it home on a Friday so that it is in all week just in case we have to change days suddenly as can sometimes happen.
This week we are looking forward to learning about:
English:We are really excited to be starting a new narrative topic this term. It is based upon a book called 'The Lost book of Adventure.' We will continue our topic by writing an explanation text to help explorers survive in the wild.
Year 6 are learning about algebra.
Year 5 will be continuing with their fractions unit including adding and subtracting them!
Our current 'Learning Means the World' topic is 'Come Fly With Me America.' We will be learning about the traditions, history and culture of different areas in America, focussing mainly on the United States. We will be covering Music, D and T, Geography and History in this half term.
Spelling homework will be set weekly, culminating in a weekly spelling test on a Friday for most children. The test will be a dictation and year 6 should focus on this element of the test in more detail as they have learnt the words before.
Weekly reading and maths questions will be set on One Note which the children will be able to access online at home as they did for home learning last year.
Star of the Week:
Last week's star of the week was Imogen for fantastic Maths work.
Last week's Dojo winner was James. James can often be found doing the right thing and has taken on his role of being one of the eldest in the school incredibly well. He is a shining example of a role model for other children to follow!
