This half term our Christian Value is LOVE.


We are a happy, family school with strong Christian values. We all work together to promote a love of learning where children succeed and reach their full potential. We hope you enjoy your visit.Hanley Swan Primary School is part of the Hanley and Upton Educational Trust




This week's book is The Snail and the Whale - a much loved classic that shows us a restless young snail who has ambitions to travel the world.The other snails think she should stay put, but she puts out a call for a 'Lift wanted around the world'. Eventually her call is answered by a great big grey-blue humpback whale! It is an inspiring story, written by one of our favourite authors, Juila Donaldson. We will learn about rhyming words, similes, adjectives, nouns and have a chance to be creative. Please send photos! 


The Snail and the Whale Plan

Read Write Inc:

Each day the Read Write Inc team post sound videos on their youtube channel.

For our children they can revise Set 2 and learn Set 3.


NEW DAILY FILMS - These are slightly more challenging, but worth a watch. They are based on set 3 sounds and are words that are 'longer'. My advice would be to watch the video with your child and pause each word to give them time to sound it out.
