Welcome to the Swifts
This term the Swifts will be consolidating everything they have been taught this year. There will be a big focus on reading and comprehension. It is extremely important that children have opportunities to read and be read to at home.
In English we will be exploring the difference between fiction and non-fiction texts. The children will compare the different features and find these in different texts. We will then focus on non-fiction texts about mini-beasts and each child will create their non-fiction book about a chosen mini-beast.
In maths we will be refreshing our understanding of addition and subtraction, and using place value to help us with our calculating. We will use our understanding of addition to help us with multiplying. We will also be learning how to read scales, thermometers and rulers.
Please ensure that your child continues to read at home every evening. There are lots of prizes for children to win as rewards for those who collect the most stamps on their reading cards. A love of reading and experience of a variety of authors is particularly encouraged across the school.
Homework will be given out on Fridays and will be due in on the following Friday. It will follow up work covered in class.
Spellings are linked to our Letters and Sounds Phonics Scheme and will also be given out on a Friday. Please learn these words and be a super speller!
A PE kit must be in school every day and kept on children’s pegs. It is recommended that kits are taken home for washing every half term. Please ensure your child has suitable footwear and clothing, especially as the weather can be cold and the grass may be damp.
