Welcome to Swallow Class at Greenleas Derwent Road. Both myself, Miss Roche-Jones (Class Teacher), and Mrs Chapman (Class Teaching Assistant) are pleased to welcome you to our class page. Please come and talk to us to discuss your children's celebrations and achievements. We are happy to answer any questions that you may have. Please find below a photo learning journey that shows some of the exciting activities we have been getting up to.
In Science Swallow Class have had great fun investigating materials. They were put into teams and had to design a parachute and capsule to protect their egg! We then tested the capsules and parachutes by dropping them from the climbing frame. Take a look at the photos and guess which team were the winners!

Which is the best material for protecting my egg and returning it safely back to Earth?

Healthy Humans! 

In Science we have been thinking about how to stay healthy. Swallow Class investigated what happens to our bodies when we exercise! We also looked at how germs are spread and what we can do to prevent us from getting ill. After much deliberation the winner of our 'Wash Your Hands' poster competition was...Katie Jacobs! The runners up were Caelan Adams and Blake Ellens. smiley
