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:
In our current 3-week genre we are learning about information texts. We will be learning more in-depth about the end of the war, and turning this information into a text. We will then write our own information text on a topic of our choice!
Swans class are learning about place value and the four operations this week.
Year 6 are learning about problem solving using the 4 operations in mathematics, moving onto learning more complex methods of arithmetic such as long division. Year 6 will also be learning bout square, cube and prime numbers.
Year 5 are starting to learn about addition and subtraction with numbers higher than 1000. We will be also subtracting higher numbers.
Our current topic is Art where we are continuing to learn about World War 1. We have been studying the form of poppies, and will be recreating our own using clay.
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 Evie. She has shown great perseverance in maths and was the only year 5 to answer a very tricky question correctly! Keep up the good work Evie!
Last week's Dojo winner was James. James can often be found doing the right thing and has taken on her role of being one of the eldest in the school incredibly well. She is a shining example of a role model for other children to follow!
