Welcome to Swallows where we are inspiring learning together.
We are a mixed Year 1 / 2 class with 21 children. Mrs Adamson teaches on a Monday and Tuesday with Mrs Howlett teaching the rest of the week. Mr Green supports the class in their learning every morning of the week. We are very lucky to have Mrs Plummer volunteering in the classroom two mornings a week. We have two PE sessions a week, these are on Tuesday and Thursday.
By delivering exciting opportunities to meet every child’s need, fantastic learning takes place, which the children are very keen to talk about to visitors to the classroom. We are passionate about children being able to move when they are learning and regularly take brain breaks. The children are truly inspired to be active with the use of GoNoodle. Within the classroom, children are challenged in their learning and understand that we have to persevere to succeed.
An example of a daily timetable
- Early morning work
- Guided Reading
- Topic work
We feel it is essential to work together as teachers and parents/carers to ensure the best for each child. Through meetings, regular newsletters, home reading books and our class tweets on Twitter parents/carers can keep up to date with what is happening in Swallows. Homework, spellings and reading books are regularly sent home to help with this partnership.
