In Swallows you will find Miss Harding and Mrs Woolnough along with Year 3 and 4 children. We are determined, hard-working and kind and are looking forward to the numerous learning opportunities both in class and outside of the classroom this academic year. Please keep your eyes peeled on this blog as we will continue to update it each week.
Autumn 1: Our Wonderful World: Part I
This half term we are focusing our learning on the continent North America with a geography focus. Children will learn about differences in physical and human geography in the United States of America, recognise key words associated with climate and get to learn about the Titanic through our text ‘Kaspar the Prince of Cats’. In our science we will be focusing on sound and are looking forward to an up and coming class trip to Norwich Castle linked with this – more details to follow. In maths we will be developing our knowledge of place value and begin to recall some of our times table facts. Take a look in the useful information section to find more details about this half term and remember if you have any questions please ask.

Another fabulous week with lots and lots of amazing learning. We’ve been working really hard in maths looking at number lines, counting up and down, partitioning and have started to develop our reasoning skills too. In English we are becoming much better at retelling our class text ‘Buffalo Nation’ and look forward to sharing it with you at the Harvest festival. We’ve been lucky to have brownies and cookies bought it and the children have thoroughly enjoyed sharing all aspects of their home-learning. Please remember to bring in reading records every day and home-learning should come in on Thursdays.

Wow – we’ve finished our first full week and what an amazing week we’ve had. We have begun learning our class text ‘Buffalo Nation’ and have even wrote poems about buffaloes. Today, we enjoyed our first music session and completed our second swimming session. We’ve enjoyed sharing Mollie’s delicious American Themed Cakes and no doubt there will be lots more amazing home-learning next week.
Friday 6th September
We’ve completed our first few days of this academic year and what an amazing few days we’ve had – well done Swallows. We started looking at our topic ‘Our Wonderful World’ and made our own sky-scrappers for our own New York City skyline as well as dream-catchers and tee-pees for our Talk4Writing text ‘Buffalo Nation’. All children have now gone home with a curriculum overview, and home-learning and spellings will be coming out next week along with dates for the parent welcome meetings.
