Musical Interlude!

Year 4 were treated to a mini concert by Hazel, who will soon be taking her Grade 3 piano. Not only did she entertain us with two of her exam pieces, but she also played us her own composition, named The Investigator! We were all incredibly impressed with her performance and wish her the best of luck in her exams.

ROMAN HOUSE TRIP

To complement our work on the Romans we went to the Roman house in Dorchester. The children had a great time exploring the remains of the Roman villa, learning about mosaics and the hypocaust system and Roman society. 

TAE KWON DO!

A huge well done to Sydney, who took part in the National Tae Kwon Do Championships a couple of weeks ago. Although he didn't win, he said it was amazing to take part. What an achievement and a great sporting attitude! Well done Sydney. We are very proud of you!

 

Welcome to Swan Class Page!

  We can't wait to take you on your learning adventure this year!

 

 

 

 

HOMEWORK

. Tasks will be set weekly for every child to complete and homework will be monitored! The children will earn rewards for completing these.

READING

We would really like you to read with your child at home (preferably at least three times a week) and get into the routine of recording any reading you do in your child's Reading Record. We will take these in on Mondays

In the back of your child's Reading Record you can now find questions to promote thinking and discussion. These are called VIPERS questions and stand for all of the vital Reading skills your child will develop - Vocabulary, Inference, Prediction, Explain, Retrieve and Sequence. 

We would like you to focus on one of these areas each week with your child and will indicate which skill it is by marking the top of the week's page with the initial letter, e.g. V for Vocabulary, I for Inference.

Other important information

Remember that we have PE on Monday and Thursday and you need to wear your PE kit into school on these days - long hair must be tied up on these days and earrings must be taped over with medical tape before coming to school. The children will not be able to take part in PE sessions if they are wearing earrings.
