Welcome back to Term 5 Swallows!

Hope you had a lovely Easter holiday!

We have had a lovely first day back doing Athletics on the field, exploring volume and capacity in Maths using water and containers and acting out the story of Jack and the Beanstalk!



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.
