Swallows Class 2021-2022

Spring Term 2022

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

We would firstly like to extend a very heartfelt thank you for the gifts we received at the end of last term. We count ourselves very fortunate to have such generous families as part of our school and class community.

This term, our topic is South America. 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. This first half term the children will be doing gymnastics in the hall, however after half term break the plan will be to start using the field again for PE lessons, so please ensure your child has appropriate clothing such as jogging bottoms, jumpers, gloves and light waterproof jackets.

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

Mental Maths – We will begin setting mental maths targets again from Tuesday 11th. New targets will be issued every week and tested the following Tuesday. These will be stuck in your child’s homebook.

Spelling – We will begin setting spellings again from Thursday 13th. New spellings will be issued every week and tested the following Thursday. These will be stuck in your child’s homebook.
