Learning about Victorian and contemporary toys

Herons have been learning about Victorian toys and comparing them to the toys of today. The children looked at pictures of some of toys and had to work in teams to decide whether they were authentic or modern day toys. They also looked at the materials used to make them, presenting their findings back to the rest of the class 

Adding with 'Tiddlywinks'  

 

Year 3 have been busy adding several 1 digit numbers together. They played a game of tiddlywinks and had to add up the numbers. They were looking carefully for their number bonds to 10 and 20 to help them to calculate mentally. 

'Fantastic Mr Fox'

In Herons the children have started a new Literacy unit about Roald Dahl's 'Fantastic Mr Fox'.  They have been familiarising themselves with the story, using drama to get to know the characters, focusing on expression and the projection of their voices.
