Welcome to the Spring Term in The Swan class

Our whole school topic for the spring term is 'Things with Wings'.

The water birds have decided to link this to the children using their historical research skills to find out information on the history of flight and what life was like for children in WW2 during the Blitz. They will be designing paper aeroplanes and investigating what factors could improve the flight.

In science we will be investigating all things to do with sound. How does sound travel? how to change the pitch on a variety of tuned instruments and what variables will make the ultimate string phone. We will also look at insects and birds, using classification keys to identify them and our observational skills to draw them. 

The second half term will see us preparing for our Spring Production, the children will be able to decide what roles they would like to take as it is up to them to prepare the whole production. Roles will include acting, scenery production, props people, marketing and advertising, IT specialists to run the lighting and projectors and the choir.

There is so much to fit into this relatively short term, but as ever we are sure the children are ready to rise to the challenge.

 

Things to remember

Swimming will be on a Thursday afternoon for 10 weeks. Girls will need to wear a one peice costume and the boys proper swimming trunks. Children will need to have their tied up and earings should be removed for the day. Don't forget your towels!

PE is on a Wednesday afternoon and Woodland activities this year will be on a Friday afternoon.

Children will need warm, waterproof clothing and outdoor shoes for the woodland.

For PE, a white top, dark shorts, warm tracksuit bottoms or leggings, warm top and trainers or pumps. 

PLEASE COULD YOU LABEL ALL PE KIT, WOODLAND KIT AND SCHOOL UNIFORM WITH YOUR CHILDS NAME, IT IS MUCH EASIER TO MATCH LOST ITEMS WITH THEIR OWNERS IF THEY ARE NAMED.
