Swifts - Year 1

Welcome to Swifts!

Something very strange happened in Swift class today.  When we came in from our lunch there was a huge red door in our classroom!  We had no idea where it came from and neither did Miss Hall or Mrs Cole.  After looking at a few pages from our new book 'Journey,' we realised the little girl from the story had drawn the door to help us with our imaginative writing.

Today in KS1 we enjoyed starting our new topic called 'Zoom!'. We took part in lots of different activities throughout the day. Our favourite activity was painting pictures of different vehicles. We can't wait for our next launch day!

There will be no homework over the Christmas holidays – enjoy the festivities with your families and maybe share some reading books.

We have been absolutely amazed at the fabulous homework in both Year 1 and 2 this term and thank you all for your continued and invaluable support.

A huge thank you to all of our families for their generous gifts and cards, all of our staff really appreciate it.

Merry Christmas to you all, have a safe and restful holiday,

We look forward to seeing you all back at school in the New Year!

Best Wishes,

The Year 1 and 2 Team​

Thank you to all who came to see the children in their Nativity this year.  We thought they did brilliantly!

We have been busy making our Christmas cards in Swift class today.  We used triangular corrugated card pieces and painted them with different shades of green paint to print with them.  We finished them with some cotton bud baubles.

This week in KS1 we took part in a Science experiment where we created our own gas. We began by making predictions about which liquid we thought would cause the greatest reaction. In order to do this we were required to place bicarbonate of soda into three different liquids to see which one would inflate the balloon. We had lots of fun :)

We have been getting into the crafty Christmas spirit!  Swift class will be selling tea light holders at the school fair for £1.50.  We started making these today, using tissue paper and modge podge (a mixture of glue and water).  We think they look really cool.  What do you all think?
