Harry Potter Day

On Thursday 24th June, Swallowfield took part in the National Harry Potter Reading event.

It is safe to say the children loved it! It was quite a surreal experience to walk down the corridors and see little wizard and witches, goblins and ghosts all learning their phonics and practising their times tables.

Throughout the day, the children enjoyed Wizardry Word challenges, making wands, creating their own Hogwarts/Swallowfield House Badges and even reading the first Harry Potter book together.

 

Thank you for all of your support from home to make this a fantastic and positive day for the children.

 

The Great Swallowfield Bake Off

The staff at Swallowfield took part in the Great Swallowfield Bake Off with some very special guest judges.  From bread week to showstoppers, we are proud to announce the entire mini-series is now available to view on our YouTube channel.

We also asked the children of Swallowfield to create their own bakes and enter photos of their bakes into the competition via Google Classroom/ Padlet.

It has been so exciting for the children to watch and bake along through the series.

Welcome back to School

We are very much looking forward to seeing you on Monday, our first day back to school for the Autumn Term. You and your children may be feeling a little anxious about the return to school after such a long time away but we would like to put your mind at ease and reassure you that all necessary steps are in place to keep the children happy and healthy as a new academic year starts up again. We have also been working hard to put together a recovery program that supports the children in the best possible way.

We would like to say a big, big thank you for all that you have done over the past few months. We know it has not been easy and appreciate your support through these difficult times.

It will be great to see all the children’s smiling faces again!

Please see attached the letter that went out on Thursday giving details on the return to school.

Swallowfield Virtual Sports Day

This is  time of year when we would have been busy practising our sports’ skills ready for Sports Day. Sadly we can’t have our traditional sports day this year but, we have planned a Virtual Sports Day for all of our children to compete in both at home and school.

There are two parts to our sports day. Firstly a competition with lots of other schools and secondly an inter-house competition for the sports day trophies and house trophy for this year. All of the activities are accessible at home or school and can be undertaken indoors or outdoors.

The Inter-schools aspect of the competition can be accessed via Primary PE Planning

Here you will find details of all the activities, short video instructions and how to submit your score.

The Inter-house competition results can be submitted on a google form – simply provide the child’s name, house and total score.

Links for both websites can be found on the attached letter.

Next week will be your chance to get practising, ready to complete the sporting challenges. Scores can be submitted week commencing 6th July.

It would be fantastic to see as many children as possible participating and we would love to see any photographs.

If you have any questions or problems please get in touch.
