Heron

Welcome to Heron class
Teacher: Miss Brown
Teaching Assistants: Mrs Davidson & Mrs Brandon

This term our topic is
Misty Mountain Sierra

We are going to be learning about different mountains from around the world and understanding where they are in the world. We are looking at how mountains are represented on maps and how they are formed in the natural world. 
We will also be looking at plants and how they grow in different environmental zones.

Reading Books

We introduced our new reading scheme, Accelerated Reader, last term and the children have responded really well to this. 
The children have been reading more regularly and completing a quiz each time they finish a book which is improving their comprehension skills, the children should be getting 85% on their reading quizzes to show good progress. 
The children should be reading a minimum of 3 times a week at home and this is recorded on a reading chart outside the classroom, please make sure their reading books are signed every time they read as they will receive a merit for each time.
