Year 6: Swifts

 

Welcome to Swifts Class

Here you will find lots of useful information about our class and our curriculum. Please feel free to browse all of the different links and enjoy all of the exciting moments from our year captured on camera!

Be sure to return soon as we update our pages on a regular basis.

It's amazing how quickly the year goes but don't worry, we've still got plenty of things to enjoy in the last few weeks!

 

We are currently developing their writing portfolios as we can assess these later in June. It's really important that children attend school regularly to ensure they have a wide range of completed pieces so we can assess them fairly and accurately. 

 

We're also taking some time to enjoy our school surroundings through some Random Acts of Wildness such as nature art, tree identification and mini-beast hunting.  You can see photos of us having fun further down this page.

 

You've probably noticed that rehearsals have started for our end of year production: Ali Baba and the Bongo Bandits.  These run much more smoothly when children know their lines so please help them to practise at home. See key dates for performance details.

 

Finally, an important part of this term is preparing children for their next school.  As well as taking part in transition days, children will have the opportunity to discuss any worries in circle time and plan for practicalities such as how they will get to school!

 

A good way to stay more up-to-date on what's going on in school is by following our twitter account: @LCPS07

 

As always, do come and see me if you have any questions or would like to come and help in the classroom.

Useful Information:

Our PE days are:

  • Thursday (gymnastics)
  • Friday (hockey)

Please ensure that your child has their PE kit in school on these days.  Please ensure that ear-rings are removed and that long hair is tied up on these days.  It would be very helpful if all items of clothing could be named.

Random Act of Wildness: Nature Mobiles

Going Wild! The Wildlife Trust have set a challenge to get children to spend more time in nature. Here are some beautiful, natural creations inspired by Andrew Goldsworthy.

Cooking Club

It was lovely to join Swifts Class for their final session of Cooking Club. They were making bread and butter pudding and it was great to see them working together, following the recipe and navigating the kitchen.  We are very lucky to have been able to use the fantastic facilities at LECA.  I'm sure the children will agree that it was much easier than dashing between the classroom and the kitchen and trying to do the washing up for 20 in one sink!  A huge thank you to Mrs Cameron and Mrs Wicker for giving up their time and running such a successful club.  I do hope the children have enjoyed it and that they continue to cook at home - I am always happy to try some of their work!
