Welcome to Swifts class
What we do in the Swifts.........
In the Swifts, the children are involved in a range of different learning experiences. Often the class topic is linked with our English focus. During many of the lessons, the children are practicing reading and writing. Please work with your children at home to practice their reading and writing.
In English we will be reading the story 'The Little Polar Bear'. We are going to focus on understanding the events that happen in the story and why they happen. We will use ideas from the stories to help us write a series of different sentences. We will be working on using a range of punctuation, lots of adjectives to add description and conjunctions to further extend our sentences.
This term the Swifts will be using their knowledge of numbers and addition and subtraction to assist with counting and using money. We will also use our understanding of additon to help us with multiplying. We will also explore the relationship between multiplication and division. Then we will move onto to using different equipment to measure objects.
Journeys and Transport
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. 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.
Thank you for your on-going support.
