Swifts, we've had a brilliant first half term! I am so proud of you for everything that you have achieved.
This week, we all went green for CAFOD to raise money for families and communities overseas. We also finished writing our adventure stories and researched the man who invented the World Wide Web - Tim Berners Lee!
I hope you all have a wonderful half term and stay safe and well,
'World Space Week'
Wow Swifts, what a wonderful week we have had. Excitingly, this week was 'World Space Week'. On Monday, we celebrated this with a live lesson, where we heard from Professor Brian Cox and even got to design our own moon buggy! We have also been focusing on this in our Book Talk lessons, where we learnt about the astronaut Mae Jemison, who became the first African American woman in space.
You also did a fantastic job performing our poem 'The Door' in our outdoor assembly on Thursday afternoon. I was extremely proud of you all and it was wonderful to watch all of the other classes in the school perform too.
Please continue to read every day at home, using BugClub online or physical books, as well as trying your best to learn your times tables and spellings.
Challenge: Can you put this message into Morse Code - Have a great weekend Swifts!
We've had a great week in Swifts. This week, we have begun our new topic 'Lightning Speed'. Please see last week's Curriculum Newsletter for more information on what we will be learning.
We have watched the story for our new visual literacy unit 'Soar' and begun learning our story map. Ask your child at home if they can tell you what happens in the story. We've also been very busy learning about all the different ways people used to communicate, going back as far as cave paintings!
For homework this week, I would like you to learn the attached poem 'The Door' by heart. On Thursday, we will be virtually performing it in front of the whole school to celebrate National Poetry Week.

What a fantastic 2 weeks we have had in the Swifts. We have been doing some wonderful things! Our story we have been focusing on was 'The Promise' by Nicola Davies. We have learnt how important Green Spaces in urban areas are and we have had some very passionate conservationists in our class who have created some beautiful posters. They have all made me the proudest teacher!
Attached is this half term's Curriculum Newsletter which contains details about what your child will be learning.
