Lovely Week with the Swifts!

We’ve had a lovely week in the Swifts. We are all getting very excited about the Nativity Play, the children are working really hard and the songs are sounding wonderful.

The children have impressed me with the facts that they have learnt from ‘The Big Book of the Blue’. I hope they have been sharing some of these at home. The Year one children have written some fabulous under the sea fact booklets and the Reception children have been using their phonic knowledge and amazed me by writing about their favourite sea creature.

We have started a new book this week called ‘Peace at last’ and the children have really enjoyed getting to know the story and the characters. We have been thinking about places where we could go if we wanted it to be peaceful.

Well done to the children who have received Mathletics certificates over the past couple of weeks, you have clearly been working very hard.

Well done Swifts, keep up the good work!

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.
