Gedney Drove End Primary School

Sweden

Welcome to Sweden Class

Class Teacher: Miss Buck

This term our topic is Heroes and Villains. We’ll discover some truly heroic heroes and heroines from the past and some villainous villains along the way. We’ll explore how it feels to do good things and bad and how we, perhaps, can be heroes just for one day.

P.E.

P.E. is on a Monday and Tuesday. Please ensure your child is dressed in the full and appropriate (indoor and outdoor) PE kit with them on these days, including our federation hoodies. Children with long hair should have their hair tied up, and any watches or jewellery need to be removed. Swimming is on alternate Mondays. Please check the newsletter for dates.

Homework

Weekly homework will be given to the children on a Friday and must be handed in on the following Thursday. Reading should take place every night (this can be to an adult or independently).

In the first week of each new term, children will be given a creative topic based project homework task. This task is often set to be completed over a 5 or 6 week period. This has proved to be a great opportunity for the children to immerse themselves in their learning and extend their enthusiasm for learning beyond the classroom. The children are able to show and celebrate their creativity when we show our final results in a homework display at the end of the term in the classroom for parents and carers see.

If you have any queries or questions throughout the term, please do not hesitate to make an appointment.
