Herons (Yr 3&4)
Welcome to Herons' class!
Miss Harrison (Year 3) and Mr Woest (Year 4)
In the Spring Term, The Ashley Hill MAT will be hosting an Eisteddfod Competition, a festival of performance poetry. All children at White Waltham, Knowl Hill and Bisham will take part in the competition and will perform one poem that they have learnt. Class teachers will judge the first round to select five winners from each class on Friday 19th January 2024. Successful children will perform in front of a panel of judges on 9th February 2024. During this afternoon, a winner from each class will be decided.
The final will take place on Wednesday 6th March 2023 at 6pm at Cox Green School. The winners will perform their poem once again and this year there will be a winner from each year group. We hope that all parents/carers will be welcome to attend the final.
Happy half term !
Our learning this week:
This week, we have been tackling the concept of CM and MM and comparing the two. The children have been working really hard on this.
This week, the children have written letters based on our book'Jemmy Button'. The children then published these in their neatest handwriting, they look amazing!
In science this term, we are learning all about animals (including humans). This week we have focused on our digestive system and conducted a very messy experiment to explain this.
In Art this week, we have focused on African masks. We have used clay in order to create our own authentic African masks.
We our exploring our dance topic. We are learning an African inspired dance.
