Here's what Herons are learning about this Summer Term

Happy 75th Birthday Elton John! 🎈

Continuing with our ‘Who Did That?’ Topic, Herons have been learning about another significant individual… The Lady of the Lamp, Florence Nightingale! We had a super exciting visit from Jackson at AS Creatives who told us more about Florence, her life and achievements. We REALLY enjoyed playing the different games Jackson had planned for us, themed all around Florence Nightingale.

Who did that?  Beatrix Potter did!


This half term, Herons have been learning all about Beatrix Potter and what she did. We have explored many of her different stories in English and used her Tales to inspire us to write own our stories! We have been sketching animals in Art and learning about the history of her life in Topic. We have even been able to visit The World of Beatrix Potter on a school trip. Herons have shown so much enthusiasm and enjoyment with this topic and I am extremely proud of all their hard work! Have a look at our Beatrix Potter learning below.



Look at our beautiful Beatrix Potter display with our own stories and illustrations! At the bottom, we created a timeline of Beatrix Potter's life.

Herons are enjoying yoga this term with Miss Becky!

Me too!

We had a great first day in Herons, learning about things we have in common! We used the wool to show how we are all connected in different ways, through our likes, dislikes, things about our families and our hobbies. 


This is us...

Shana Tova! 

We have enjoyed starting the school year by celebrating the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah! We made cards for friends and family, and then tasted the traditional honey and apples. They were sweet! We said we are going to have a 'sweet' year in Herons! laugh
