Our topic this term will be under the titles of What a Wonderful World’ . We will be looking at adaptation and evolution in Science, research and programing in ICT and Sikhism in RE. In PE, Year 5 are swimming on a Friday morning and Year 6 will be practicing ball games and continuing gymnastics following the sessions taught by Swavesey Village College PE teachers.
Please ensure that your child has a PE kit that is suitable for both indoor and outdoor PE. Indoor kit consists of a white T shirt and black shorts. Outdoor PE kit can include tracksuit tops and bottoms, and a suitable out door coat in case it is cold/damp.
Pens Although we provide pens and pencils for the children to write with, often they prefer to bring in their own. We encourage the children to bring in their own black pen to write with in school. We recommend a ‘Roller Ball’ or ‘Gel Ink’ pen of some kind (medium tip) and a ‘Ball Point’ (Biro) for use in planning books. Do make sure your child’s pen is clearly labelled (at home) with their name, so that it is easily identifiable. We would encourage your child to keep writing equipment in a small pencil case.
Water bottles Your child should have a bottle of water (not juice) with them in class to drink at appropriate moments, particularly during warm weather. Please make sure these bottles are clearly named. Again, suitable bottles can be bought from Emily in the office. Do encourage your child to take his/her bottle home each day, so it can be thoroughly cleaned. The children will only be allowed to fill their bottles at break times so a full bottle should be brought in at the start of the day.
