Top Table: Isaac and Lukas     Praise: Arnold

What a fantastic half-term we have had. Swallows have loved working with their student teacher, Miss Cooper and Miss Thwaites has loved her first half-term with Swallows class. It has been a priviledge working with the children and seeing how much progress they have made so far in such a short space of time. The children have produced some fantastic final writes based on our book 'The Dragon Machine'. The stories created have been exciting to read and the children have really shown off the skills they have developed. WELL DONE, SWALLOWS!


Week beginning 28th February 2022:

We will continue to complete our spelling tests on a Thursday and our times tables test will take place on a Friday.   


Please note that our PE day this week are on Monday. Please come to school in your PE uniform as usual on this day.

There is lots happening on the first week back after half-term.

World Book Day will take place on 2nd March where the children can come dressed up as their favourite character or in pj's.

New story focus in Writing- Major Glad, Major Dizzy by Jan Oke



Read Write Inc

You will have noticed this week that your child may have changed RWI groups or come off the scheme to move on to Pathways to Read. If you have any concerns about how your child is progressing with their reading, please come and speak with me so that I can share more personalised strategies. 


Please spend 10 – 20 minutes reading each day. This can be a combination of Read Write Inc and bedtime story books. Please remember the importance of your child listening to YOU read during this time too. 


For the next two weeks we are going to focus on spelling contractions. It is crucial that the children learn to join the letters accurately and where an apostrophe is the letters either side of it cannot be joined.

This week’s spellings to be quizzed on Thursday 3rd March are listed in your blue reading diary.


Times Tables 



Please complete your times tables work sheet for this week. Some children have now moved on to learning their 5 x tables! Well done! If you would like your child to progress quicker, please access times tables rockstars to support their times tables knowledge. 


Please also use Hit the Button and choose the 5 x table facts to help prepare for our 5 x tables test which lots of children are now working on.  https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button
