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 The Dinosaur That Pooped a Planet by Tom Fletcher and Dougie Poynter?

What a very funny book. Did it make you laugh? 


Dinosaurs were amazing creatures. Would you like to meet a dinosaur? How about having a pet dinosaur?

Think about what the dinosaur would be like. Think about the size, the colour, the food they like or where they would go.

Can you write about your dinosaur?

Use the sheets below to help you and do not forget your lovely cursive handwriting.

Capital Letters and Full Stops

Can you remember about full stops and capital letters?

What are they and when do we use them?

Can you spot where full stops and capital letters go?

Have a go at the sheet below and see how many you can get right.




I hope that you are continuing to read regularly. This week I will add another comprehension activity to the reading page.  Have fun!


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


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.


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.
