Welcome to year 3!
I am Mr Kirke and will be teaching Heron Class this year. I love reading and we will be looking forward to a range of class books. We've started the year with Pebble in my Pocket and Gangsta Granny for the end of the day.
My favourite subject is Science and I'm really looking forward to as many practical experiments as possible!

Easter Gardens

We had visitors to the class last week who helped us make beautiful Easter Gardens.

We used lots of natural resources and added our own ideas to them, some of us wrote messages.

We placed them outside Y4 & Y6 in the reflection area for others to enjoy.

Watercress Farm

Watercress farm was a great forest school experience for Heron class. The large space was fantastic for the children to explore. We were immediately greeted by a pair of roaming pigs that were very interested in our lunches! Once the children got over their initial surprise, getting so close to real animals was a highlight for several of the children.

 Once we dropped off our bags Nicola and Anna greeted us and took the children to see the other roaming animals, cows and ponies. It was amazing to get so close and learn a lot about these animals and their surroundings.

 After a walk around the area, including a stop to play Pooh sticks at the bridge, we had some free time at the camp. Nicola lit a fire, and the children enjoyed a mud kitchen, swing and especially hammocks!

 After lunch we built dens for some soft toys and then toasted marshmallows. Everything was clearly explained, and safety was a priority throughout, ensuring the children were able to try new things whilst having a great time. All in all, a great day.
