Welcome to the Heron Class!

We were very excited to wave Miss Coulthard off before her wedding day. We look forward to seeing lots of photos when she returns after half term!

In maths this week we have been using positional and directional language. We have been directing the beebots and each other! We have used mathematical language such as 'left, right, above, below, backwards and forwards.' 

We have been continuing our work learning about our local environment. We went on a mini beast hunt. We found lots of creatures. The children noticed that we found most creatures hidden away under logs and pots. We enjoyed using the website .  This is a great resource for finding out about different creatures. 

We had great fun learning about snails today as part of our science. We have been looking at different animals in our local environment. We learned lots of snail facts and found 5 different snails!

We enjoyed learning about 3D shapes today and played a fun game. We had to describe the shapes for our team to guess. The children did really well!

The Easter Story

We had a lovely time on our Easter egg hunt today. We worked as a team to hunt for 30 eggs! Max and Joshua were in charge of counting. Max let us know how many eggs we had left to find. When he counted 26 he knew we only had 4 more to find.  You can have lots of fun with maths!

30th March

What a great return to school we have had Herons.  We have enjoyed learning the story of Peter Rabbit and making our own Rabbit Fact-files.  

we hope you have a wonderful Easter.

Autumn Dancing

Autumn in the Heron Class


We have been learning about Diwali. We made a Rangoli pattern. We learned about the Hindu God Ganesh. 

The Little Red Hen

Our new talk for write story is The Little Red Hen. Today we began to learn our story so that we can tell it to our friends. We also painted some of the characters in the story. 

Our class pets

We would like to introduce our new class fish. We voted to name them Rosabella and Beauty. In science we have been learning about how to create an aquatic habitat for them. We have learned how to look after them. Today we tested their water to make sure it was clean and safe for our fish. We also cleaned the filter as it was very mucky! It is very important that we wash our hands with soap after looking after our fish. 


Herons have been practising counting this week. Have a look around and see if you can collect some autumn leaves, conkers and acorns. Can you put them into groups and count them?

Autumn time also means Forest School for us!

We enjoyed our first session despite the wet weather. We found bugs, climbed trees and drank warm hot chocolate.
