Spring Term

This term our Whole School topic is 'Bright Sparks'! In Herons class our topic lessons will link together History, Science, Art, and DT. We are going to be finding out lots of information on famous Bright Sparks such as inventors, artists, and explorers. We are also going to become Bright Sparks to investigate and explore different materials in Science, complete an exciting DT project and also create some detailed artwork!


What an amazing day we had at Imagine That in Liverpool! We had lots of fun exloring, playing, imagining, experimenting, building and discovering! We watched a science show that was full of surprises as we learnt about the power of bubbles! We also painted colourful fridge magnets, made strawberry scented bath bombs and even made our own gooey, sparkly slime that we were able to bring home! 

Kung Hei Fat Choi!

Today we have enjoyed learning all about Chinese New Year! We discussed what Year of the Rat means for 2020 and looked at the different animals for different years. Miss Woods was born in the Year of the Tiger! In the morning, we made animal masks and role-played the famous zodiac story, 'The Great Race' to each other. In the afternoon we made our own Chinese dragon out of scrap materials in our classroom! What a fun and busy day we have had!
