Swift Class wc 29th June

Wicklewood Primary School Swift class Year 2

Hello Wonderful Swifts,

You are all working so hard, keep it!

Every Monday I will set your phonics, English and maths work for the week. All the resources you need will be at the bottom of this webpage. Don’t forget to look at the ‘family challenge’ activities on the website as well. The maths and English activities are the most important things for you to complete, but you may enjoy one (or more) of the family challenges.

There is a video message from me on the school website on Monday morning to start the week. Parents/carers can email me at swift@wicklewood.norfolk.sch.uk with any questions, and you can send me one piece of work a week that you are proud of. All emails must be from a parent email account. I will continue to provide feedback on your Purple Mash work. Thank you for your happy song suggestions….

Swift class ‘Happiness’ playlist:

  • Happy by Pharrell Williams
  • We’re all in this together from High School Musical
  • Don’t stop believing By Journey
