Today Herons explored using different instruments, and how they can be adjusted to create different volumes and pitch.
On Friday afternoon, Herons were practicing their partner balances in Yoga.
Herons spent this afternoon conducting an investigation into magnets. The children tested different objects for magnetic properties and recorded their results in a table.
Thank you to all adults that came to our Family Cafe today! We spent the afternoon experimenting with circuits, making our own switches, and creating viking brooches.
Herons enjoyed sharing books with Robins on Friday afternoon!
Herons participated in a growth mindset workshop that taught them they can always improve at anything, as long as they are willing to put in enough time and effort. It aims to lead children away from fixed mindset thinking ('I'm not good at this'), and towards growth mindset ('I can get better at this').
Herons thoroughly enjoyed their trip to the Time & Tide museum to learn more about the vikings. Activities included training to be a viking warrior, learning about traditional viking burials, and searching for viking treasure with a metal detector.
Welcome to Herons class!
We are looking forward to the term ahead. The children are already enthusiastic about their new homework menus, and undertaking these activities, as well as spending time looking through their new 'Knowledge Organisers' for Science and Geography, will go far in supporting their learning at school. We also hope that these will give you, as parents and carers, a clearer understanding of what your child will be learning this term.
PE days will be Wednesdays (swimming) and Fridays (yoga).
If you have any quick questions please don't hesitate to see us on the playground. If you feel you would like to discuss something which will take a bit longer please book an appointment at the office.
