Herons class

Miss Thompson and Mrs Nadeau

Welcome to Herons with Miss Thompson and Mrs Nadeau. We are delighted to be back and looking forward to the term ahead. We hope to make the children’s final term at Manor Court as brilliant as possible. 


In English, we will be continuing to focus on grammar and spelling each day. We’ll be reading some brilliant texts to inspire our writing: Wonder, Cinderella, The Highwayman and Macbeth. Spelling, grammar and handwriting will be a daily focus. 

In Maths, we’ll continue working on arithmetic and problem-solving daily. As we have now covered the whole Year 6 curriculum, we will be consolidating key concepts and revising these with a range of activities and investigations. We’ll also be learning about maths in a financial context to give it a real life context.  


In History, our topic will be Crime and Punishment from the Roman era to the present day. We’ll use this as a way of recapping all the different time periods we’ve learnt about throughout our time at Manor Court. In Science, we’ll focus on ‘Evolution’ for the first half term and in the second, we’ll learn about ‘Living things and their habitats’. Our Geography topic will look at the Americas and we’ll contrast areas of the Americas with locations in the UK and Europe, honing our map skills while we do it.  

We’ll also be busy in the other subjects: in Computing, we’ll be learning about spreadsheets and computer systems; we’ll make burgers and learn about seasonality in DT; and we’ll focus on change and transition in PSHE. PE will be twice a week and will include swimming this term.  


Weekly Maths and English homework will be set and collected on Tuesdays and children should read 5 times a week.
