'Be Kind, Work Hard'

Welcome to Swifts class  

Welcome to the Swifts class web page. 

Mrs Isley, Mrs Davis and Mrs Luttrell-Marler are looking forward to all our new learning opportunities in the Summer Term.

Summer Term 2

English 

At the beginning of this half term, we are going to continue focusing on non-fiction writing like we did last half term. We are going to look at persuasive leaflet writing and we are going to write a leaflet encouraging people to visit Hunstanton, the seaside town that we are focusing on in Geography.

 

Later on in the half term, we are going to focus on the book, Clean Up! by Nathan Byron. This is a story set at the seaside, focusing on plastic pollution at the beach. We are going to use the story to improve our writing, as well as creating different types of texts, for example, posters and postcards, to raise awareness about plastic pollution at the beach. 

 

Phonics

We will continue to learn phonics in Summer Term. Some us may be re-taking the phonics assessment. 

Please find below the PowerPoint from the phonics meeting on 21.4.2022.

Maths

 

Measures

 We will continue our learning about measures at the beginning of term, looking at mass, capacity, temperature and length. We will learn how to read different scales and to compare the different types of measurements.

 

Position and Direction

We will also learn about position and direction, learning about different turns, such as half turn, quarter turn, three quarter turn, using our previous knowledge of fractions to support us with this.

 

We will also continue to consolidate all of the learning we have learnt in Maths over Year 2, to ensure that we are ready for more maths learning in Year 3.

History and Geography

       

This term, our topic is 'Seaside Holidays'. We are going to learn about features of the seaside in the United Kingdom and Kenya. We are going to focus on Hunstanton as a seaside resort and compare it to a seaside resort in Kenya. We will also learn about the continents and oceans of the world, as well as focusing on map and atlas work. We will also learn about seaside holidays in the past and how Victorians in the UK experienced seaside holidays compared to seaside holidays in the UK today.

Science

During this term, we are going to focus on the topic Animals, including Humans. We are going to learn about the life cycles of humans, as well as animals such as the butterfly. We are even going to have some class caterpillars which we will watch them form a chrysalis and turn into a butterfly! We are also going to learn about the basic needs of humans and animals (food, water and air), as well as learning about the importance of exercise, healthy eating and hygiene. 

 

Homework will be set online on Fridays using Seesaw and will be due in the following Friday.
Spellings will be handed out each Friday and will also be set on Seesaw. Please learn these words and be a super speller!
