Fabulous first week back!

What a wonderful first week back after a lovely break. We started off by celebrating Diwali and the children created some fabulous Rangoli patterns. They created some lovely clay diva’s and tried some yummy Indian food. I was very impressed with what the children tried and enjoyed!

We got our passports out again and flew with Spaldwick Airlines to Brazil in South America and the children are looking forward to learning more about the carnivals, Brazilian food and the Rainforest.

We had our first PE session with specialist coach Vicky Leighton which the children thoroughly enjoyed. PE days are now on Wednesdays and Fridays.

Changes to our PE sessions

Now that the Christmas play is getting closer, our PE slot on a Monday will be used for rehearsals. This means that the Swifts will only have PE on a Tuesday afternoon for the next 3 weeks. Please make sure that they have their PE kits in school all the time.

On another note, just a quick reminder to bring back the letters for the Christmas play, regarding tickets and the creche, so that we can do our best to get you all of the tickets that you ask for.

It’s nearly half term Swifts!

WOW! What a brilliant first half term we have had Swifts! You have all worked incredibly hard! I hope you all have lots of rest over half term and come back nice and refreshed!

Mrs Field has kindly asked if the Swifts could practise logging in and out of Mathletics and Purple Mash independently over half term. This will make the Swifts learning time in our ICT sessions longer!

One last thing!! On THURSDAY (19th October) the Swifts are going to go on a Harvest Welly Walk! Please can you make sure your child brings in their wellies and a coat on Thursday. 🙂

Thank you!

Miss Allan
