Swallows Year 1

The Swallow’s Class Warmly Welcomes You All


It has been so lovely to meet you since the new term began last week and to get to know the children. They are doing so well and have all settled happily. We have been having lots of fun learning about Sharing a Shell, creating our own maps in Geography and practising writing our numbers and letters. 

The Swallow’s class teacher is Mrs Westrop. We also have three Teaching Assistants, Mrs. Merriman, Mrs Jamal and Mrs. Clarke. One of the most important parts of our learning is reading and phonics. It is vital that children read at home too and all children are expected to read at least 5 times a week at home with an adult. They should have their reading book and reading record in school every day. On a Monday they will be checked to see that they have done their 5 Reads at home and they will then be a Star Reader. Books will be changed on Mondays and during the week as necessary. There is a box to leave them in in the morning.

P.E. lessons are on Monday and Wednesdays. Please also ensure their uniform/PE kit is named as it is so much easier to locate clothing! Please ensure your child has a water bottle at school each day with water in and not squash/sugary drinks.


Parents/carers please feel free to discuss any concerns you may have, if it needs a longer discussion we can book a phone call for a suitable time so the conversation doesn't have to be rushed before/after school!  


Thank you very much for your support so far. I look forward to a great year together.




Useful websites for home-learning
'YouTube Kids' is an app you can download on Apple devices that is safe for children to use. It has lots of educational videos for children to watch. Our topic this term has been the Three Little Pigs so the children could see if they can find the story and retell it.
