Heron Class is a Key Stage 1, mixed year one and two class of ten pupils with mixed ability and differing needs.  We are a young class in the early stages of learning about school and life.  We approach our class topics and activities with enthusiasm and inquisitiveness. We engage in a sensory ‘hands on’ element to our learning.  We work in collaboration with Speech and Language therapists (SALT) and physiotherapists to develop our communication skills and gross and fine motor skills.

Our class rules of which we remind ourselves of each day are:

  1. To walk in class and school.
  2. To sit on our chair during circle time.
  3. To be kind to people.
  4. To listen to grown-ups.
  5. To always try our best.

This Summer term, we are working on the topics of ‘We are Zookeepers’ and ‘We are on the move’. During this time we plan to visit Thrigby Wildlife Gardens of which more information is to follow. We are looking forward to seeing some of our favourite animals that we have been learning about.

We very much enjoyed meeting our teacher Kelly’s, pet chicken ‘Chilli’ recently.  We learnt about what it takes to care for an animal, how to hold an animal gently and we had the opportunity to feed her.
