Welcome to Swifts class
Welcome to the Swifts class web page.
Mrs Isley and Mrs Davis hope you all had a lovely Christmas break and are looking forward to lots of new learning experiences during Spring Term in Swifts class.
During this term we are going to use our understanding of addition to help us with multiplying. We will look at ways to represent, read and interpret different groups. We will also explore the relationship between multiplication and division. Later on in the term, we will look at different fractions and how we can find equal parts of shapes and numbers.
For our topic we will learn all about different journeys and types of transport. The children will be involved in a range of activities which think about different types of transport and who invented them. We will explore transport in history by looking at Henry Ford and the Wright Brothers. The children will be making a vehicle in pairs during D&T lessons. They will explore and experiment with different materials to see how to later construct the vehicle. Shoe boxes would be greatly appreciated for this task.
Homework will be given out on Fridays and will be due in on the following Friday. It will follow up work covered in class.
Spellings are linked to our Letters and Sounds Phonics Scheme and will also be given out on a Friday. Please learn these words and be a super speller!
Please ensure that your child continues to read at home every evening. There are lots of prizes for children to win as rewards for those who collect the most stamps on their reading cards. A love of reading and experience of a variety of authors is particularly encouraged across the school. We will change reading books on a weekly basis.
A named PE kit must be in school every day and kept on children’s pegs. It is recommended that kits are taken home for washing every half term. Please ensure your child has suitable footwear and clothing, especially as the weather can be cold and the grass may be damp.
