Happy New Year Heron Class! I hope you've all had a wonderful Christmas break. Please find attached the Curriculum leaflet for the Spring term.

One of Santa's little helpers came to visit us, a lovely Cow-deer! Happy Christmas Herons!

Interfaith Week - Our Judaism Workshop

Thank you for all your wonderful homework - it's AMAZING!!

A mysterious spaceship has landed! Heron Class are off to investigate......

In Maths we have been learning how to prove if an answer is correct using number lines, addition and subtraction facts and practical resources. The children loved working together to prove that they knew the answer - well done Herons!

We have been making leaf pictures of Autumnal animals in the Outdoor Classroom this week.

Our trip to We The Curious!

In the outdoor classroom Heron Class have been busy building shelters!

In Maths Heron Class have been learning how to use the greater than, less than and equal to symbols to compare numbers.

Mel Reid has been teaching us how to sew!

We have been learning how to place numbers on an empty number line.

We've been busy learning how to move our bodies in different ways to form shapes. Miss La Croix then challenged us to perform symmetrical movements with a partner.

We have been busy learning how to partition numbers into different combinations of tens and ones. The children are doing brilliantly!

As part of our topic work on Space, the children have created the most amazing pictures of the planets in our solar system. They learned how to create tones and tints using pastels. Don't they look fantastic!

In Maths the children have been very busy learning how to partition (split up) two digit numbers into tens and ones and then into different combinations of tens and ones. They've picked this up brilliantly - well done Herons!

We used our time in the Outdoor Classroom to make the solar system using natural resources.

A huge well done to everyone for having a go at their homework - here are just of few of the wonderful creations the children have been making at home.

In PE the children have been learning how to use their bodies to create shapes such at the tuck, pike, straddle and straight movements. They then had a go at synchronising their movements with a partner.

We've been busy learning how to make the numbers 1-20. The children have learned how to use place value counters and Numicon to help them with this and to help them understand what happens when there are more than ten when writing the teen numbers.

In Drama the children acted out our very special trip to the moon! We set off in our rocket, moon-walked on the moon and explored lots of huge craters before coming home again.

The children have been busy exploring their new role-play area the 'Space Station'.

Here is our Autumn Term class leaflet which will let you know what the children will be learning about in school.

General Information

Spellings are handed out on a Friday and are tested the following Friday. The spellings are based on the work we are doing in class in Letters and Sounds and on high frequency words. If you lose your spellings, there will be spare copies on the Parent's Notice Board in the cloakroom for you to take.


Children, please bring in your reading book and reading diary into school every day. Try and read to an adult every day at home for 10 to 15 minutes.


Homework is given out on a termly basis and I ask for any completed homework to be handed in on a Friday. Homework tasks will be varied and you may choose which tasks you would like to complete. Spare copies will also be available on the Parent's Board. Parents - if you're able to spend some time helping the children on their homework, that would be fantastic.


Our PE lessons this year will take place on Tuesday afternoons every week and on a Thursday afternoon on a fortnightly basis. Our outdoor classroom slot will alternate with the second PE lesson on Thursdays. Please ensure your child has their full, labelled PE and Outdoor Classroom kits in school on these days.

I would be very grateful to any helpers who would like to come in on a regular basis to hear readers and as this has a huge impact on our young readers. The children will also be busy practising their number bond facts so if anyone is free for period of time, please do let me know. Later in the term, it would also be brilliant if anyone would like to help the children learn their times tables with our '77 Club'. If you would like to volunteer to do this, please pop in and speak to me or Mrs Hague at the office.


Children, try and remember to bring in a water bottle and please remember to name the water bottle. Drinking water helps your brain to function better!


Thank you smiley
