Swallow (Year Two)

Welcome to Swallow Class 2018/2019 with Mrs Cooke, Mrs Johnstone and Mrs Gibbin

 

We have all had a restful break and have been really looking forward to seeing all of your lovely children again. We can't wait to share some more wonderful learning opportunities as a class again this year and look forward to seeing how much the children will continue to flourish at St Nicholas. 

 

Just a few reminders:

P.E is on a Monday afternoon - we will also be running 1km a day straight after break :). 

Children need to continue to read every night and must place their books with reading records into the red box if they need their book changing.

Library will be on a Wednesday and the children will choose a book to share with someone at home.

Please make sure that all school uniform and school items are named to limit confusion and items getting lost/misplaced.

Term 5  - Powerful, Peculiar Potions!

The children have been really enjoying our new topic of 'Powerful, Peculiar Potions!'. We have just finished reading George's Marvellous Medicine and this text enabled all of the children to get lost in the story whilst exploring characters and predictions during our English lessons. We have been working hard on mastering addition, subtraction, multiplication and division within Maths and I am super proud of how confidently the children are using different strategies to solve calculations. We have had the opportunity to explore lots of Art so far this term and the children have found out about the Pop Artist Andy Warhol and also had the chance to create some of their own examples of Pop Art, thinking carefully about colour choices and the impact the colours would have on the audience.
