Our learning this week! 

Fri 14th September 2018

In lessons this week we have been busy learning all about Roman Numerals, Explanation Texts and Light! We even had time for some artwork. 

In Maths the year 3 children looked at the place value of 3 digit numbers and year 4 explored Roman Numerals! During English we have begun looking at an explanation text all about Towcester and have begun looking at the features. 

In the afternoons we have been looking at light in science with Mrs Brickwood, as well as creating some 3D buildings inspired by the artist 'Hundertvasser'. 

Well done to Edward who is our star of the week this week! Edward has proven how hard he can work in lessons now he is in KS2.

Welcome back! 

Fri 7th September 2018

Over the last 3 days the children have been introduced to a newly decorated classroom, a Geography based topic and have welcomed new friends. 

We had a look at the different kinds of maps, and mapped out an area of the school in the style of an ordnance survey map. The children enjoyed working outside to draft out their ideas. 

We had a look at drawing and shading and have begun to create some 3D shapes which we will use to make our very own European cityscape! 

On top of this the children have been busy and concentrating on practising key spellings and making their own network hands (to help them feel safe at school). 


Star of the week, spellings and homework will be given out next week - just a reminder that PE for our class is on Monday and Tuesday. 

A week of hard work in Herons! 

Fri 21st September 2018

In Maths this week we have been counting in multiples of 10s, 100s and even 1000s form any given number as well as ordering and comparing a group of numbers! 

In English we have started writing our class explanation text all about Northampton, the children have worked really hard on this and I am pleased with all of their ideas! We have also just started designing our own towns and cities which the children loved! I look forward to seeing them write about these next week. 

We have just stared to look at the continent of Europe as part of our Topic 'Earth Explorers!' and the children worked collaboratively to produce some epic posters. 

A huge well done to Yoann who was star of the week this week! Yoann always shows me he is ready to learn and is such a enthusiastic member of the class.
