Welcome to Swans 2022 - 2023!
We hope you enjoy looking at our learning on this page.
Please ensure your child brings their book bag, reading book and their water bottle into school each day.
Our PE day is Wednesday - please ensure your child comes into school in PE clothes and a school jumper.
Please remember to check Google Classroom regularly for home learning, information on our current topic as well as the phonics we are learning in class.
This term we will be looking at Traditional Tales. The books above are the ones we will be looking at in detail but we will be reading lots of other stories from lots of different cultures. The children will be bringing in their own stories from home too!
We really enjoyed our Fire Safety Talk and learnt about when we should call 999 and when we shouldn't. We were very excited to try on the uniform too!
This term we have been learning all about different journeys and types of transport we can use. We learned about the Dartford Crossing too. It is important to us because it is on our school badge! We also brought in photos from home of different journeys we have made on trains, planes and all sorts of other transport!
We really enjoyed exploring the snow before Christmas! We collected it in different containers and talked about them being 'full' and 'empty'. It was great fun watching the snow melt on our hands inside and playing with the artic animal toys in real snow.
These are some of the books that we read together as a class as a part of our first topic in Swans class.
PC Rafter came to visit us at school today to explain how the Police keep us safe and what their job is day-to-day. He showed us different pieces of equipment and explained what they were used for, and we even go to go in the back of the police van in the jail cell. We really enjoyed that!
Swans took part in a whole school skipping workshop. The teacher told us how to hold the skipping rope properly and we then had to try to skip for 2 minutes without stopping! We found it tricky but persevered!
We were very excited to have a visit from the Doctor. She showed us her bag that holds all of her medical equipment and demonstrated how the different instruments worked. We even got to have a turn ourselves! Afterwards, we really enjoyed play 'Doctors' together.
The Swans were very excited for the Teddy Bears picnic! We brought in our teddies from home and they met our new friends at school. In the afternoon our families came and helped us with a teddy bear hunt and then we had a lovely picnic. It was lots of fun. Thank you to everyone who came!
