Welcome to Swifts class
Welcome to the Swifts class web page.
Mrs Isley and Mrs Davis hope you all had a lovely Summer break and are looking forward to lots of new learning experiences during the Autumn Term in Swifts class.
In English we will be reading traditional stories from different cultures. We will read a story called Hansel and Gretel. Next, we will read Baba Yaga and we will compare the characters from both stories. We will look at what is similar and different, describing the events and the characters. We will later use these stories to help us write our own story.
This term, Swifts will be investigating numbers and simple calculations using addition and subtraction. We will be learning to record the calculations by writing a number sentence. We will think about numbers which are bigger and smaller and we will learn how to partition numbers into tens and ones. We will learn the strategy of counting on.
This term, our topic is 'All About Me' and we will learn all about ourselves and our families. We will think about what we look like and use words to describe ourselves, for example, ”I have brown hair.” We will also learn about the different family members and how they are related to each other and we will put this into a family tree.
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.
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.
