This half term our Christian Value is KINDNESS.


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




Have you read Princess Mirror Belle and the Dragon Pox? It is another story by Julia Donaldson.

 In the story Ellen looked in the mirror and saw her reflection.

Can you have a look in a mirror and take a close look at your reflection? What do you see? How do you look?

Can you draw a picture of your reflection and then label the picture with the parts of the body and some adjectives? Do you remember what adjectives are? We use adjectives to describe things. You might have blue eyes or brown hair.

Handwriting Activity



I hope that you are continuing to read regularly. This week I have added another comprehension activity to the reading page. It has three different levels. You can either choose a level or work through all three during the week. Have fun!


New reading books added to the 'reading' page with updated weblink to Collins 'Home Readers'.


Continue to read and handwrite the high frequency word activity from last week.


Book Trust have a selection of books to read together and listen to online... 


Do not forget the wonderful 'Alphablocks' as well - you can access these through YouTube or BBC Iplayer.

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.




Read and Hold a Sentence 1 (from 15th June): reading and writing practice. Remember that when we write we use cursive writing. Every letter starts on the line (apart from capitals).


Read Red Words 1: These are high frequency words that are not phonetically plausible.


EXTRA 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.
