Welcome to the spring term of Heron Class!
I hope you all had a safe and wonderful Christmas and a happy new year with your families. We have had a fantastic start to the Spring Term and Heron class have been super excited to learn and play together. We are ready for a busy term ahead.
This term we will continue to work with Fred frog to learn new sounds. We will apply these sounds to read and write. I am so excited to read some new books with the children. As mathematicians we will be focusing on numbers to 20. We will learn about tens and ones before using this knowledge to add and subtract.
We will start humanities focusing on ‘Nurturing Nurses’. As historians we will learn about significant nurses including Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole.
As scientists we will be exploring the four different seasons and using our enquiry skills to record observations that we can see.
During RE, Herons are learning about our community and the wonderful people within it. As artists we will apply our learning of colour to complete printing focusing on the artist Joan Miro.
This term we will continue our discovery learning in the afternoons. We will use our discovery passports and clipboards to complete provision tasks linked to our learning through play.
We are so excited to share our learning with the rest of the school and to our families and friends as we enjoy our year as Herons.
