Swift Class

Swift Class

Swift class combines Year 3 and Year 4 children. The class is taught by the very skilful Miss Swain who is supported by Mrs Mikkides, who supports the children in their learning. 

Funky Forces Curriculum and Homework Map

Swift class had a great time at the dodgeball tournament. They worked together superbly and we came first in one tournament and second in the other. Well done everyone!
Egypt Day was fantastic. The children learnt loads of facts about Ancient Egypt, measured like the Egyptians and took part in a mummification ceremony. Everyone behaved exceptionally and we even crowned our new Pharaoh!
Mrs Day visited us to teach us all about our muscles. We had a great time looking at the models and trying different exercises to see which muscles we were using.

Making Cartouches

Swift class made their own cartouches out of clay this afternoon. They had to roll out their clay, cut out their shape and engrave their name in hieroglyphics. They look fantastic!

Our Orchestra

The children created their own instruments as part of their homework. We learnt about how instruments make sound and how it travels to our ears. Then, we create our own music piece.

Kentwell Hall

Our trip to Kentwell hall was amazing. The children behaved incredibly and had a fantastic time experiencing life as a Tudor.

Tudor Artefacts

Learning about flowers

As part of our science topic, we have been learning about the different parts of the flower. We we have learnt why each part is so important and dissected a flower to see if we could find them all.

Our Class Assembly

Thank you for coming to our assembly last week. The children loved sharing their work.

Our visit to Duxford Air Museum

We had a great time at the Air Museum yesterday. We learnt lots about how planes work and the similarities and differences between old and new planes. We went on Concorde and even saw a spitfire doing tricks in the air. It was a fantastic day.

A Pilot came to our School!

Viking Day

Our Viking Day was great. The children really enjoyed the making shields, decoding runes and drumming. What a great way to end our topic!

Library Time

We are Scientists!

We have been learning how to be a scientist. We have learnt about conducting a fair test and making predictions and soon we will look at writing up our experiments. 


Swift class had an amazing time at our dodgeball tournament. We didn’t win but we tried our best and had loads of fun. Rocco even got to demonstrate infront of all 5 schools. Well done everyone!

Class Assembly

Swift Class really enjoyed sharing their work at the class assembly. They have loved learning about the Stone Age and Iron Age this half term. We hope you enjoyed it too!
