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.
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.
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!
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.
Our trip to Kentwell hall was amazing. The children behaved incredibly and had a fantastic time experiencing life as a Tudor.
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.
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!
Our Viking Day was great. The children really enjoyed the making shields, decoding runes and drumming. What a great way to end our topic!
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!
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!
