Welcome to Swans Class

We plan and deliver an exciting integrated curriculum.


Our Curriculum is a structured framework of half termly themed Learning Units for each primary school year group. It covers Foundation subjects, RE and Science and is fully mapped to cover the National Curriculum requirements.


This approach allows teachers to be creative whilst providing them with the support and framework that is needed for a consistently delivered and planned whole-school curriculum. This ensures that the National Curriculum is being covered and that our learners and teachers go home every day excited and buzzing about their day.


Please see the knowledge organisers below for more detailed information on our topic. 



Each week your teacher will upload, on this page, the spellings for each year group and the homework for the week or term. Additionally, reading will be set on Rising Stars each week. Please aim to read every night for around 15-20 minutes. 


Spellings will be set on a Friday and tested in class the following Friday. 


Homework will be set on a Friday and will either be weekly or termly and will be set on Purple Mash. 


Homework for week ending - 25th September to be completed by 9th October- 2 weeks.
