Welcome to Swifts Class!
It has been lovely to get to know everyone at the start of our new term. Our new Swifts have settled into school really well and we've been very impressed by their resilience and enthusiasm.
Our Swifts' teaching team is Mrs Martin and Miss Long (Tuesdays) and we have teaching assistant support at different times from Mrs Drew, Mrs Howe, Mrs Newman and Mrs Taylor.
There are lots of exciting topics coming up this year. We begin with London: Then and Now, looking at buildings and life in London nowadays then moving back to 1666 and the Great Fire of London. Future topics are Who made that? Let's find out! (inventors and inventions), Footsteps in the Snow (journey stories) , Hola Mexico! (comparing a part of Mexico with our local area), I spy nature (plants and bugs) and Buckets and Spades (learning about the seaside.
We will be trying our very best to honour our school and class rules: Be Respectful, Be Ready, Be Safe.
One of the most important parts of our learning is reading and phonics. This is a big focus in school and it is vital that children read at home too. We expect each member of Swifts to bring in their yellow Reading Record on a Tuesday showing that they have done their 5 Reads at home and they will then be a Reading Champion.
Thank you to all parents and children for making the start of term so fantastic and we look forward to a great year together!
Mrs Martin and Miss Long
