Homework Task

We have been talking about chronology in our topic lessons – the prefix ‘chrono’ meaning time. We have ordered pictures of different time periods in history and talked about how we find out about the past.

Task: We would like the children to produce a timeline of their life – from birth to present day, mapping out all the key/important dates they have experienced. You can add information and even some pictures or photographs. Please could children bring in on the last week of half term (date beginning 19th October). You might like to talk about the parents timeline and how these overlap with your children – do you share any of the same key dates? Did you look back on these events with the same opinion or remembering the event in the same way?

Week beginning 21.9.20

This week we have implemented a new rewards system for the children. They will be receiving Dojo points for good work, teamwork and helping one another. Once they reach a multiple of 10, they will get to choose a small reward from our prize box.

As the weather is likely to change over the next few days so please ensure your child has appropriate clothing. They may need a change of socks for after PE.

Week beginning 14.9.20

We have had another brilliant week in Swallows class. The children have been continuing their work on place value and securing their understanding of numbers to 1000. In English they have completed their first piece of writing of the year. They enjoyed their first music with Mr Cooper and are making great strides with their topic work. In science they have begun their new topic on light. Look out for some extra homework linked to this coming soon, this will be in your child’s home book.

Week beginning 7.9.20

This has been an amazing week in Swallows class. We have been really pleased with the way that all the children have settled in so well. They have had to adapt to a new class setting and taken everything in their stride. Well done especially to Year 4 children who have been incredibly mature and supportive.
All the children have impressed us with their enthusiasm for learning and obvious background knowledge on so many interesting subjects.

We are really looking forward to the coming weeks when we can work together sharing and working alongside each other.
Your children have proved to be unique but are have shown us how well they work together.
We think this year will be great fun!

Welcome to Swallows 30.8.20

We hope you are having a wonderful summer holiday and are looking forward to welcoming you to our new classroom in September. 

You might notice that some things have changed since you were in school but there is no need to worry about this. You will soon get used to the ‘new normal’ and all the staff are here to make sure you enjoy your time at school.  

When you come into school on Monday 7th September Mrs Weathers will be there to greet you and you will need to walk into our classroom via the back door. You will then need to put your bag on your peg, your packed lunch on the trolley and go straight to wash your hands. Mrs Connor will then help you find your seat and explain the activity. When everyone has arrived, we will begin the day. 

We have lots of exciting things planned for this term and we can’t wait to share them with you. There will be lots of learning happening and also lots of fun on the way too.  

Enjoy the rest of your summer holidays and we will see you very soon. 

Mrs York and Mrs Weathers
