Swallows Class 2021-2022

Summer Term 2022

Welcome to the Summer Term! We hope you had a lovely Easter and are looking forward to a new term.

This term, our topic is Myths & Legends. Once again, this topic has been chosen for the wide range of cross-curricular links which we hope will really engage the children.

As it is a new term  we would just like to remind you of a few practical matters:

Show and Tell – If your child has something topic related that they would like to share we will have ‘Show and Tell’ on a Friday afternoon. ‘Show and Tell’ is a great opportunity for your children to develop their speaking and listening skills. It is important that the item a child brings in works well as a ‘conversation’ piece and not only encourages the owner to talk freely about it but also encourages listeners to ask questions.

PE – PE is still on a Wednesday afternoon with Mrs Green and Friday with Mr Colbeck. An appropriate change of clothing (school PE kit) must be worn and trainers or plimsoles should be included. The children will be doing athletics in preparation for sports day, so please ensure your child has appropriate clothing.

Reading‘Guided Reading’ will continue on from last term and any homework will be recorded in your child’s home book.

Mental Maths – We will begin setting mental maths targets. New targets will be issued every week and tested the following Tuesday. These will be stuck in your child’s home book.

Spelling – New spellings will be issued every week and tested the following Friday. These will be stuck in your child’s home book.
