Welcome to Herons with Mrs Scott, Mrs Jones and Mrs Maunder. We are settling well in to Year 6. In Herons we have high expectations of ourselves and each other and are always striving to be better learners; throughout the year we will be working on our resourcefulness, resilience, reflectiveness and reciprocity.
In English this term we will be writing a science fiction story; our second unit will be a newspaper article about Hurricane Irma. After half term we will write narratives with flashbacks based on the short film The Piano. We will end the term by writing non-chronological reports. In mathematics our key topics are place value, calculation and fractions.
In year 6 this term the children will be learning about Climate, including climate zones and weather around the world. After half term we will focus on history and the fascinating Tudor period.
In Science our topic is Animals including humans; we are learning about the circulatory system. Our second topic is Light, including how we see.
In Herons we are very lucky to have Mr Jackson, a specialist coach, teach Multi-skills on a Friday afternoon. On a Wednesday afternoon Year 6 are taught drama and music by Miss Dalton.
