Welcome to Swift!
We are a mixed class from years 3&4 and you will find us in the the hall corridor.
Our teacher is Mrs Wellon and our teaching assistants are Mrs Jones and Mrs Khatri.
This year Swifts will be swimming on Wednesday mornings in Terms 1 & 2.
This term the children will be learning about the Romans. There will be a strong emphasis placed upon cross curricular links between History, Art, English and Computing.
In English the children have already undertaken an archaelogical dig, writing recounts and newspaper reports about the dig. (photos to follow shortly)
In History the children have already learnt about the formation of Rome and the Roman myth about 'Romulus and Remus'. They enjoyed re-enacting the story taking on the parts of Romulus, Remus and the She-wolf.
In History ,English and Computing the children will go on to undertake their own research about an area of Roman life that interests them, using books and the internet as sources of information (please see the links below). They have already used Ipads to create a mind map and break their research idea into sub sections. In Computng they will learn about wikis and how to share information on them and evaluate the reliability of such sources of information. Their research information will then be used to create an information text in English and to create a Wiki in Computing .
