Yellow Class 2023 - 2024

Mrs Swallow

Yellow Class Teacher

Dear All,


Welcome to Yellow Class! I hope you find the following information useful. 


The staff in Yellow Class are: Mrs Debbie Swallow 0.5, Mrs Lacy 0.5 and Miss Butler (full time). 


This term our Topic is Discoverers - we will spend the term learning about the different continents and oceans. We will also complete an indepth study on Kenya. We can not wait to get started. Please see our Long term and Medium Term Plan for further details. 


Reading  - Reading for now, will continue as it did last year for the children. They will be heard read three times a week as part of a guided reading session. Some children will also read individually with an adult. Reading is such a vital part of your child’s learning so please read at home with the children; ten minutes a day really does make all the difference. Please write in your child’s reading diary so we know that they have read. They can then move along our reading stars – one star for every time they read. If the children read 5 times in a week they will get a sticker on a special bookmark.


Spellings – Spelling rules and patterns are taught on a daily basis in Yellow Class. There is no weekly spelling quiz.


Homework – will cover a variety of different subjects. Homework will be given out on a Friday and is due in on the following Wednesday.


PE and outdoor learning - PE will be on a Wednesday. Children will need to come to school in PE kits every Wednesday. When we do outdoor learning we will send an email and text reminder. On these days children will come to school in home clothes and bring wellies and waterproofs. 

Snacks – Please send snack in a SMALL container or just with your child’s name on. Remember we are a Nut Free school. Children can also bring money for snack. 


If you have any queries/ questions then please see either Mrs Swallow or Mrs Lacy on the gate. You can also ring school on 01270 906120 or email us on


Kind regards,


Yellow Team
