Welcome to the Heron Class 2018-2019

18.10.2018       Super Splash Heroes!

We had so much fun this morning watching a pantomime by the Super Splash Heroes.  We learnt about how important it is to save water.  One thing we can do is to turn off the tap whilst we are cleaning our teeth.  We also found out that we can get a free 'water saving pack' by requesting it on the Essex Water website.

27.09.18 - We were lucky enough to have a member of the fire service in today to tell us about the great fire of London and to give us some fire safety tips.  We even got to try on a helmet!

17th September - Please see note below RE: Tapestry

September 19th 2018

Today we went for a walk to Ballard's Walk. We noticed lots of interesting things along the way. 

We saw bus stops, road signs, zebra crossings and shops.

We also saw the special Remberance Bench.

Today we had golden time in the Reception outdoor area now that the builders have gone! (07.09.18)

We learnt to sketch and have begun to paint our self portraits.

The Great Fire of London!

Teacher (teacherone) on: HERONS

Today we watched our buildings burn. It was very windy just like in 1666!

The fire spread very quickly. We used our senses to help think of how people in 1666 might have felt.

Measuring - heavy and light.

Teacher (teacherone) on: HERONS

Today we have been weighing objects and comparing them to find out which object is the heaviest. As a class we decided which object would be the heaviest then we compared them. We were very good at this! We knew the glue stick would be heavier than the whiteboard pen.

Then we used cubes to calculate how heavy it actually was. Harrison correctly guessed that the pen would be 3 cubes heavy.

In the outside area we had to order some bags of objects from heaviest to lightest. 

At home have a go at estimating how heavy something might be. Compare objects and see which one would be the lightest and which would be the heaviest. Can you order the items too?

St George's Day

Teacher (teacherone) on: HERONS

Today is St George's Day , he is the patron Saint of England.  So we celebrated by writing about how brave he was to say "No" to the emperor. St George refused to hurt Christians as he was a Christian too.

We have been thinking how we can be brave .

Everyone enjoyed a special snack in the afternoon of cream,jam and scones or different kinds of cakes! They were delicious...

PE - Using the apparatus.

Teacher (teacherone) on: HERONS

We used our upper body strength to climb the ladder to the apparatus. We thought about how we could do this safely.

Some of us could climb high through the hoops.

PE - Travelling across the apparatus.

Teacher (teacherone) on: HERONS

 

Today in PE we travelled across the apparatus in different ways. Sometimes we used our arms to swing across, others used their bodies to slide across and some climbed across. We thought about all the different ways we could use our bodies to move.

The history of Flight

Teacher (teacherone) on: HERONS

 We have been learning about the Wright Brothers and about why they are famous. We found out that they made lots of different gliders before they invented the first powered aeroplane. Everyone made paper aeroplanes and adapted them just like real inventors. Then we all flew them! Whose aeroplane flew the furthest?!
