Herons

 
 Welcome to Heron's Page
 
The class are supported in the 'Heron's' class by the teacher, Tony, and four teaching assistants, Tracy, Scott, Rebecca and Jenny.  This year the 'Herons' are a mixed key stage 2 group of pupils in years 4 and 5. Our autumn topic is "Wild Weather".
 
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 be able to once again engage in some of our activities which have not be possible over the last couple of years.  Heron's day for a trip on the bus will be a Thursday (am) 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.
 
On the Farm
Our spring topic is 'On the Farm'.  In class we will be looking at the stages of life for humans and other species and considering their habitat. We will learn about the animals which live on a farm and use our senses to explore different fruits and vegetables that can be grown.  We will make a comparison of modern farming in England to farms in other parts of the world and farming in ancient Egypt.
