Manor Primary School

Welcome to Swans Class

Your teachers are: Mrs Armstrong and Mrs Mason

We plan and deliver an exciting integrated Connected Curriculum.

Our Connected Curriculum is a structured framework of half termly themed Learning Units for each primary school year group. It covers Foundation subjects, RE and Science and is fully mapped to cover the National Curriculum requirements.

This approach allows teachers to be creative whilst providing them with the support and framework that is needed for a consistently delivered and planned whole-school curriculum. This ensures that the National Curriculum is being covered and that our learners and teachers go home every day excited and buzzing about their day.

Spring Term - We're Going on a Bear Hunt!


This half term we have been learning about bears. Bears from nature, stories and songs. We have learned in geography where bears live and spent some lessons looking at China the home of Giant Panda's. In History we learned how the teddy bear got its name and who invented the first teddy bear. For Design Technology we became toy manufacturers and made our own teddy bears. Some pupils made teddy bear puppets. We all enjoyed learning a new skill.

Autumn Term 2 - London's Burning

Last half term our topic was called ' London's Burning'. We used our historical enquiry skills to learn about why we celebrate Bonfire Night each year. In addition, we learned about the Great Fire London and investigated what happened on that fateful night of 2nd September 1666.

Swans also used their food technology skills to investigate, design and bake bread. It was delicious. In PSHE we learned about fire safety and discussed what we would save in an emergency.

Keep a look out in the classroom for some of our work.
