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 Beth.  This year the 'Herons' are a mixed key stage 2 group of pupils in years 4 and 5. 
 
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.
 
Keeping House
Our spring topic is 'Keeping House'.  In class we will be looking at the way that humans live, what we need to be comfortable and how we can keep safe in our homes.  Some of us will think about how we make energy for our houses and consider the technology we use.  By looking at other countries and times gone by we can compare different types of home.  We will think about forces and how they can help us.
