Year 5 - Heron

Heron Class get some exciting news! : May 2024

Two weeks ago in maths, Heron class put their statistic skills to the test to create and collect data in two way tables. They were finding out everyone's predictions on whether Mrs Bailey-Harris was having a baby boy or girl. Today was (finally) the day that they got to find out! Each child got their own scratch card where the news was revealed. It was such a pleasure to get to experience this excitement with the class.

'enthusiastic groups, lovely to see their confidence grow, they enjoyed being out of school on their bikes learning about the road environment. Thank you to the school for making the Bikeability team feel welcome. Professional support so the children got the most from the courses. We look forward to working with you all next time!'

The children who took part also commented:

'I would have never learned this anywhere else' - Bethanie

'I would love to do this again' - Evie P

'I love it' - Evie W

'Interesting, helps learn the roads, signs and what they mean' - Amelia

'Helps me know how to communicate with drivers' - Alfie

Our very grateful, and HUGE THANKS go to Mrs Edmends and Mrs Zeffiretti for assisting the groups, and of course to Clare and Amy from Somerset Road Safety, who provided the children with these invaluable lessons to stay safe while cycling on the roads.

We are delighted to confirm that we have secured two further courses this year for Year 5, and further details will be sent out to parents/carers in April regarding this.
