Herons is the year 3 class which is the first class in Key Stage 2. It is taught by Mrs Potter and assisted by Mrs Jones.
In lessons, we build on the work of Key Stage one. At times we work independently, but working with partners and groups is also very important. We enjoy investigations in maths and science. Our history and geography topic work sometimes includes visits and role play when we dress up, for example as an ancient Egyptian, and experience what life would have been like at a particular period in the past.
Children are offered the opportunity to begin learning the violin in year 3. We have class music lessons led by Inspiring Music in which we learn other instruments. This year we are all learning the clarineo for a term.
Homework in Herons is a weekly learning log in which children are asked to practise skills learned in school and research new areas of topics. There are also multiplication tables to learn for weekly tests. We also have spellings to learn each week. We ask that you read and discuss your school reading book as frequently as possible. Please bring your reading book to school each day.
Please ensure that PE kits are always in school and a waterproof coat and water bottle is brought each day.
The children may have the opportunity to attend a 3 day residential visit to 'Stibbington Outdoor Centre' in March, where they experience a range of science, geography and Eco activities.
