Swale Class

Swale Class is home to our Year 2 and 3 children taught by Miss Morgan, with support from Mrs Brown, Miss Burrows and Miss Robinson.

 

PE

PE takes place on Mondays and Thursdays. Children should come dressed in their PE kits to reduce the amount of changing in school. They should ensure that they have suitable trainers and layers, including a suitable jacket, for outdoor PE.

 

Reading

Reading underpins much of the learning we do in school. We hear children read individually, as well as in groups or pairs throughout the week.

We will send home reading books each week on a Monday. Due to quarantine restrictions, we would appreciate it if you could send reading books into school on Fridays. Please continue to hear your child read throughout the week and write it in their planners. For older children who are reading more independently, it is still valuable to share parts of books with them, and discuss what they have read to themselves. I encourage the children to read anything and everything that they enjoy, as reading for pleasure can create a lifelong habit.

 

Maths Passports

We are asking parents to support children's development of mental maths strategies through the Maths Passports. Your child will have been given a maths sheet with ideas of activities you can do at home. They will be assessed every few weeks to monitor their progress and learn new tasks.

 

Spellings and Phonics

All Swale children receive a Spelling Practice Book to bring home each half term. We support them to investigate the spellings in school, alongside the practice they complete at home. Spelling tests are on a Monday morning. Year 2 children will also bring home additional phonics practice sheets. These are to practice at home to support them to continue to use phonics in their reading.
