It is amazing to be in Swallows' Class - my favourite thing in the class is all the kind people. The thing that makes it special being in Swallows' Class is that it is fun to learn!
Welcome to Swallows
Moving from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 2
If your child is moving from Year 2 to Year 3, please note that your child will no longer receive a free piece of fruit or vegetable at playtime. Alternatively, you may send in a healthy snack for your child to eat at playtime.
Lunchtime is a little later, running from 12:30-1.30pm.
Your child will no longer have an afternoon break time, but we ensure the children have plenty of opportunities to have active breaks throughout the day and we regularly go outside for the Golden Mile.
Reading : Your child will take home their school reading book each day. We ask that they spend time reading at home each day and record their reading within their Reading Record book. We ask that your child brings their reading book and Reading Record book to school each day. They can do tests on Accelerated Reader after finishing their books.
Spellings: Children in Year 3/4 will need to know how to spell the common exception words for their year groups. These can be found online and will be given to all children.
Timetables: Children should be practising their times tables regularly. Children in Year 4 will complete an assessment at the end of the year.
PE (PE kit)
For this term, Swallows' Class will have their PE lessons on a Monday and Tuesday. Please make sure that long hair is tied up on PE days, and earrings, if worn, are removed. On PE days, children will need to come into school in their PE kits and remain in them all day.
Trips and Visits
The Autumn term will see us learn about Egyptians. We will incorporate an Egyptian day into our learning with a visit from History off ht Page. In Year 3/4, the children have the responsibility of being Eco monitors, so in Summer, they attend a residential at Stibbington Centre.
Year 3/4 Production: Each Spring, Year 3/4 produce a play of songs and performances, in which all children across the Phase take part. Please don't miss it!
