Welcome to the Summer Term!
I am really looking forward to an exciting term, you will find attached a copy of the Summer newsletter, a curriculum map and a copy of my medium term plan for your information.
In the mean time I will aim to keep this page updated with all the wonderful things your children have been up to in class. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to pop in, my door is always open.
We have had an amazing day at Safewise today, learning about how to keep safe in a variety of situations, from crossing the road to knowing what to do in the event of a house fire. We have some follow up work to do, so we will be talking about safety as an on-going theme in the classroom.
Please ask your children what they have learnt today, I am sure they will have lots of safety advice to give you!
The Creation Story
We have enjoyed exploring the creation story during our whole school focus week. The children have acted out the story, created art work and on Tuesday looked at the beautiful patterns nature provides us with. We looked at the work of Andy Goldsworthy and went outside to create our own art inspired by nature. The results were beautiful and the children created their own image of the world from leaves and flowers.
Were the Vikings really vicious?
This term our topic is Narnia! Please find a parent topic leaflet and medium term planning document below ,but this may change depending on other activities or events that happen throughout the term. Lots of exciting things to come through the spring term such as a visit to the secondary school library and world book day fun and games. We have also made bands and have started writing our own songs - this has been done through singing strategy lessons (funded by SASMA) and we will also be taking part in Clayesmore's Choral day in February.
What a brilliant start to the year! All of the children have worked super hard throughout the week. They have written some fantastic pieces of descriptive writing linked to the book Journey and have worked their socks off in maths! Congratulations to Toby, Grace, Roussi, Meme, Dante, Jasmine and Sophie who have earnt their pen licence already!
Well done to all the children in Swallows class for a fab week!!
