Swanton Abbott Community Primary School

Herons. Years 4 and 5

Welcome to the Heron Class!


We are Heron Class!  Mrs Frost teaches us for four days and Mrs Wilson teaches us on Fridays.  Miss Harper and Mrs Allen are our teaching assistants. 


This term our topic is the "Who Were the Anglo Saxons?".  We LOVE discovering how these people lived long ago and how they have affected our lives today and what their legacy to us is.


We work hard on our English and maths in the mornings and enjoy choosing our own maths challenges to stretch our brains!  It is our aim to learn all of our times tables by the end of Year 4.  We are encouraged to play online games, sing, perform and look for patterns within them at home.  It is exciting to move up the Olympic Times Table Challenge Ladder!  This term we are working hard at presenting and performing poetry.  We are sharing a wide variety of poems we have chosen as our favourites.


We look forward to our PE sessions with our sports coach on Thursdays and we always go outside to learn new skills and team games.  We are enjoying composing simple pieces on percussion instruments.  We are learning to read musical notation too!


We have 2 minions every day who are the class monitors and they are responsible for giving out books, resources, taking messages around the school and reminding Mrs. Frost about anything she has forgotten!  We have several class pets: our mice and Stephanie, our small fig tree whom we water once a week.


We venture into our beautiful grounds regularly as part of many of our learning experiences.  You will often find us exploring with our clipboards!
