Southill Primary School

"A caring, family school"

Years 3 and 4

Welcome to Swifts Class.

Hello and welcome to Swifts!  Our teachers are Mrs Read and Mrs Hoster and our teaching assistant is Mrs Buttigieg.  Our classroom is bright, well-resourced and learning is always fun!  We have a designated ‘Reading Jungle’ and a wonderful outdoor space, which is attached to our classroom.  We use this to extend our learning, particularly in the spring and summer terms.

 We enjoy English and Maths every day. Most of our subjects are taught through an exciting thematic approach.  This year our topics are: ‘Ancient Egyptians’, ‘Wondrous Water’, ‘Extreme Earth’, ‘Transport Yourself’, ‘Riotous Royalty’ and ‘The United Kingdom’.

We have a PE lesson once a week usually on a Wednesday.  Please ensure kit is in school at all times as sometimes we do extra PE sessions and participate in sports festivals.  We are encouraged to read with an adult at least four times a week at home.  Our homework consists of weekly spellings and times tables.  By the end of Year 4 all learners are expected to know their times tables up to 12 x 12.  Below you will find some useful documents including our ‘Spelling Booklet’ for the current term so that you can support us at home.

As Year 4s, we take on lots of exciting roles of responsibility through our monitor jobs. We all get chance to be Sociable Swifts, helping others on the playground in a variety of way. 

We have  PE at least once during the week. Please ensure kit is in school at all times as sometimes we do extra PE sessions and participate in sports festivals.
