Welcome to Swallow Class!

Summer 1 

Welcome back for Summer 1 children. Please remember to keep reading everyday at home. Do not forget to check seesaw for new learning posted every Wednesday.

This term we will be reading 'The Tunnel' by Anthony Browne and 'The Bear and the Piano' by David Litchfield. In maths we will be leaning all about shape, space and measure and our Science learning is about plants and their basic needs. 


Please do continue to support your child with reading 1:1 at home each day! This is vital to ensuring that they do not fall behind. Seesaw homework will be sent out each Monday to be completed over the week. 


If you need to contact me regarding anything, please phone/email the school office.


Best wishes 

Mr Thompson
