Herons

 Welcome to Heron's Page
 
The class are supported in the 'Heron's' class by the teacher, Tony, and three teaching assistants, Tracy, Scott and Zoe.  We also have a student teacher working with us in class this year. 
 
In addition to our curriculum we undertake work on communication, behaviour and social skills.  Over the course of the week we also have access to a variety of facilities which assist our work on motor skills and sensory diets.
 
 
Key Activities
Once the term is underway and class routines are established we will commence swimming and local trips out on the school minibus.  Heron's day for a trip on the bus will be a Thursday (PM) on alternate weeks.  We are scheduled in for swimming on a Friday; this is likely do be on a rota within the class.  More details will be sent to you directly once finalised.
 
Our autumn topic is 'Water' 
 

As part of our Science work “Earth and Space” we will look at how day and night occur.  We will look at the differences between the Earth and the Moon, learning about our geographical features though story, modelling, and sensory exploration; we will begin to think about the importance of water for life. Additional themes such as “the fire of London”, and “volcano’s” will allow us to explore opposites such as hot and cold, dry and wet, light and dark.
