Swifts

Summer Term

The Swifts will start the Summer term by exploring ”Farm to Fork". This is a fantastic topic which looks closely at how our food is grow, produce and shipped out to us. We will look at farming in detail and changes that have occured whilst at the same time growing and examining plants. This topic also follws the story of Wilbur, the excitable little pig in the story "Charlottes Web"

The second topic for this term will be led by the children so watch this space!

 

English will follow a two weekly cycle, with Big Writing at the end of the second week. We will focus on a range of genres throughout the term. These will be: report writing, a detailed description, poetry and an information text. The genres explored in English will always have links to the topic and the reading that we do in the classroom so as to maximise learning and provide links for the children.

 

Learning in maths will help the children develop their  understanding of fractions, time and geometry. Please keep supporting your child with their knowledge and recall of the times tables (2,5,10,3,4 & 8's).

 

The Swifts will enjoy many science investigations which will be linked to our topic and the children will be encouraged to explore the world through these investigations. This term, we will be examining plants and how this grow.

 

In PE, on a Wednesday afternoon , Miss Kee will focus on athletic skills in preparation for sports day, whilst on Monday or Tuesday Mr Green will contnue to develop children's understanding of core skills related to game situations.

 

The Swifts are really lucky to have Mrs Ward working in our classroom alongside the children. She will support the children in their learning. Mrs Payne will be available in the playground before school to pass on any messages and then she will work in the classroom in the afternoons.
