Welcome to Swift!

 

 

We are a mixed class of children from FS2 (Reception) and year 1. You will find us in the the hall corridor.

 

Our teachers are Mrs Wilson (Monday - Thursday) and Mrs Saunders (Friday), and our teaching assistants are Mrs Fielding and Mrs McGrath.

This page will updated throughout the term. We will put all our important information here. There are some recommended websites further down the page but to begin the year we want your child to simply enjoy being in our class. We ask you to chat with your children about their day as we join you in your school journey and make learning fun and exciting.

 

We want to encourage you to read to your children and with your children as often as possible. Regular counting in ones for FS2 children and in ones, twos, fives and tens for Year One will support their maths and opportunities to write at home are always benefitial. However remember they have had busy days at school - so if you can only fit on one thing before they are too tired, please read!

Transition to Year 1
