Welcome to Swans 2021 - 2022!

We hope you enjoy looking at our learning on this page.


The children change their story books on a daily basis. Please ensure they bring a water bottle into school every day. Our PE day is Wednesday - please ensure your child comes into school in PE clothes and a school jumper.  


Thank you! 

Our topic has been 'Transport and Journeys' and we have been learning lots of different stories like the ones below!

This term we have been learning lots of stories and creating story maps for them so that we could use those to help us retell the stories to our friends.

Shape Hunt around the school!

In our first half term our topic is 'All About Me and My Community'.  Swans class have been very excited to become a part of The Gateway community and learning all about the school, Dartford and people who help us in our local area. Our topic is based around the books below.

The children have settled in really well to life at The Gateway and enjoy being a part of Swans class.  They have made new friends, got used to new routines and become a part of the whole school community! 

The Swans were very excited to have a visit from Kent Police and have a look around the police van.  Some of them were even brave enough to sit in the cell at the back!

Swans were very lucky to have a visit from one of the children's parents who is a Doctor!  She showed us what equipment she has in her Doctor's bag and explained how the different equipment is used.  The children were lucky enough to have a go themselves.  They then played Doctors together afterwards!
