Hello Swifts!

How are you all? Mrs Ryder, Mrs Ashworth and Mrs Hoddinott have really missed seeing you but it has been so lovely to receive all your emails and photos letting us know what you have been doing at home with your families. We are so proud of you and the learning you are doing.  It looks super fun, especially when you have learnt outside!  We have been very lucky that the sun has been shining so much.  We also know you are missing your friends but we have been hearing how you are speaking to each other by video calling each other too. How super and it is such a lovely way to keep in touch! 

 

We are now at the beginning of Term 5 and we have lots of lovely home learning activities planned for you all to enjoy. Please spend time making memories with your families and when you have time don't forget to email us to let us know how you are and what you have been doing.  We really look forward to hearing from you and to seeing your home learning photos.  If your grown-up says it is ok you can become a famous Swift and star on our webpage! 

 

Remember we are always here for you Swifts and don't forget stay home, stay safe and have fun!

World Book Day our books we shared

World Book Day our books we shared 2

Evil Pea visited our Classroom and Supertato had to save the day! Traps were made, vegetables freed and writing inspired! We made Supertato to help save the day!

On our first day we read a beautiful story about friendship, being kind and how to treat each other.  Stick and Stone became friends and helped each other when Pine Cone was unkind. It all ended happily! We created some wonderful art work using natural resources; they were so beautiful to look at.

World Book Day - Stick and Stone

Welcome Back to Term 4!

 

Wow! Where has the year gone! We cannot believe we are in Term 4 already but the children have grown in so many ways. They have definitely built their resilience to learn and they are showing us how they can work independently and also as part of a team which is wonderful! 

 

We are so looking forward to welcoming Spring as although it hasn't been the coldest of Winters it has been very wet and windy! Hopefully we will have some warmer, sunnier days learning inside and out with new challenges to help us develop our Minster Learning Muscles and be the best we can be!

 

Thank you for all your continuing support to help the children learn at home too. Reading regularly impacts greatly, not only on their progress but their confidence too. The children's developing phonic skills are really helping them to read and write and we can see this every day.  We are so proud of the progress the children have made so far. Keep believing you can Swifts!

 

We are looking forward to our book days this week. On Thursday our focus will be on friendship and we will be encouraging lots of discussion around this as well as some lovely craft activities. On Friday we will be donning our capes and masks (even the adults) and becoming Super Hero's for the day. We have no doubt that with super teamwork we will save the vegetables from the Evil Pea!

 

Please remember to catch us if you need any advice, or your child or yourself need support. Also remember to keep sharing any exciting news or achievements with us.

 

We are looking forward to a very Happy Term 4.

Swift Class Teachers

There was a cave in our classroom today!

The sign said "Do not enter". We tried so hard to write "Can I come in?"

Happy New Year Swifts!

 

We hope you had a wonderful time over Christmas and time to rest too!

 

We can't believe it is Term 3 already time has flown!  We can't wait to continue our learning experience with your children; they are always so proud of their achievements, which is wonderful. We do like to spend time exploring and learning both inside and outside so can you ensure your children have their warm coats, hats and gloves (with names) please.

 

We look forward to a fun-filled term with your all.

We had great fun in the forest this afternoon!  We learned about keeping safe and we listened so well to follow the rules whilst we were playing and exploring. We loved to climb the hill and we climbed in the trees.  Some of us made a huge fire and toasted marshmallows (leaves on sticks); we made a den and we were brave enough to try to travel over the rope bridge.  We can't wait to visit the forest again! Such superstars Swifts!  Well done!

We found pumpkins with numbers on!

Wow Swifts, you have been in school for a whole term already! We are very proud of how you have all settled. Lots of you are now coming into class independently, which is amazing and we will continue to encourage this independence next term. 

Thank you grown ups for coming in to create and write your hopes and dreams for your child this year; it was a very special time to share.

We hope you and your families have a very enjoyable two week break and we will see you back at school on Monday 28th October.

 

Happy Holidays!

Well done Swift Class completing your first week of having a lunch at school! You have been so brave going up to the hall to have a school dinner and choosing what you would like to eat.  You have also visited the big playground where you can run around and have fun.  We are looking forward to seeing you all next week for the whole day - how exciting!  Have a lovely weekend and see you on Monday.

20th September 2019

Wow what a wonderful week Swifts! You are so settled and are learning the new routines of school. Some of you are coming into Swift Class happily without an adult which is super! Lots of you are changing into your wellies by yourself and you have learned where your carpet spaces are. Well done we are so proud of you.  Next week the children are staying for lunch and it will be so helpful if they can know if they are a school dinner or packed lunch on Monday. Please do not worry we will be there to support them in the dinner hall and out on the playground. Have a lovely weekend everyone.

Dear Swift Class

It has been wonderful to meet you all and get to know you this week.  You have been superstars!

We have been very impressed with how kind you are to each other and your lovely manners. You are making us very proud of you already.  Don't forget grown-ups, if you have any questions for us, our door is always open.  We look forward to seeing you tomorrow!
