Spring Term 2017

 

 

In Herons class this year much of our learning has been centred on our topic, World War Two.

We’ve been writing stories and detailed recounts about the Battle of Britain. In DT, we have enjoyed building Anderson Shelters and painting pictures of the Blitz, in preparation for the children becoming evacuees for the day and visiting Eden Camp.

In maths, the children have been learning about place value, addition and subtraction and most recently, geometry.

Our topic in science has been ‘light’, and we have learned about sources and reflectors of light (as well as bioluminescent animals!), and begun examining translucent, transparent and opaque objects as well as how light is refracted through transparent objects.

We’ve been learning World War Two songs in music (I’ve heard many a Heron humming ‘Run, Rabbit Run!’ on several occasions around school!).

The children have also enjoyed learning French with Madame Heap, and they have wholeheartedly taken part in a range of sports and games during PE.

What a fantastic start to the year Herons have had, and it’s only going to get more exciting!

Mr. Davies
