Swallows are a Y4/Y5 class with a total of 28 pupils, it is a really lovely classroom with very understanding teachers. Our teacher is Miss Grant and we are supported by Mrs Whitcher and Mrs Rogers. The classroom is decorated with tips about learning which encourages us massively. We are all very kind to one another and are a class of caring, respectful children who work well as a team.
Last term our topic was Crime and Punishment, it was very fun and fascinating, we learnt about the history of how they treated people, and the common crimes. We had a detective who came into our class to do a workshop and teach us how to take fingerprints and solve a crime.
This term we are learning about our local area, we are going on trips to Chew Valley Lake to collect data and information ready to help us with our work in class; this includes map work and field work in Geography, watercolour painting in Art and learning about plants in Science.
We do PE on a Tuesday and Wednesday, so far we have learnt hockey, rugby and dance skills. Last term we also participated in Tennis and Badminton. Our 'Gonoodle' page helps us keep active and use up our energy.
When we are well behaved and get on with our work we earn ourselves a brownie point, if we fill the tray we get a prize. We also gain housepoints for our colour team, we earn these by being kind or doing great work. When we collect 25 housepoints we get a certificate in celebration assembly. Star of the week certificates are also handed out for outstanding achievements throughout the week.
