Miss Thompson and Mrs Stoker
Welcome to Herons with Miss Thompson and Mrs Stoker. 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.
Our expectations and standards continue to be high and we know the children will be doing their absolute best to show pride in all their work as well as being kind and responsible members of the school community.
Our enquiry question this term is, ‘How have different species adapted to their place in the world?’ We’ll learn about ‘living things and their habitats’ and ‘evolution and inheritance’ in science. In geography, we’ll learn about climate zones, vegetation belts, biomes and climate change as well as learning about longitude and latitude on maps.
In English, we’ll continue to revise grammar terms daily. We’ll also read The Garbage King by Elizabeth Laird and Wonder by RJ Palacio, which will hopefully lead to some positive discussions about starting at a new school.
In maths, we’ll be applying our maths knowledge from the last year (and all the ones before) to some real-life contexts and we’ll be carrying out some fun investigations.
Later in the term, we’ll be working on our play (no spoilers yet though!) and we’ll also be enjoying our enrichment week which includes an art project, cooking, tie dye, some incredible pancakes and a residential with a whole range of activities to have a go at.
It’s going to be a wonderful term!
