Welcome back to Term 4 Swallows!
We have had a lovely week. We wrote some fantastic rhyming poems inspired by the magical story Leaf and also performed Some One by Walter de la Mare.
Our PE days are still the same. Gym is on Monday afternoon and Netball is on Tuesday morning with Jody. Please send your child in with the correct PE kit. Please make sure your child has trousers and not shorts due to the weather.
In Maths, we have been exploring place value and getting really confident at identifying tens and ones in 2 digit numbers.
In Writing, we have been retelling our 'Defeating the Monster' story from Roald Dahl's The Twits.
We have also been practicing writing in the past tense and using a range of conjunctions!
Muggle Whump's monkey gang and the birds are teaching Mr and Mrs Twit a lesson.
Take a look at our wonderful writing!
In Science, we have been hands on using observing and classifying inquiry skills: exploring the properties of different materials and classifying objects in our environment by their material.
