Nursery ‘Woodland School’

The Nursery children have been taking part in weekly ‘Woodlands School’ activities. They have been practising putting on their waterproof clothing and Wellington boots, listening to stories around a log circle and then going on a hunt through the woodlands area to collect some leaves. Once they collected some leaves, they brought them back to their base camp circle and practiced their counting skills by lining up the leaves and using careful counting to see how many they collected.

Year 3 Dinosaur Learning

Year 3’s recent topic was ‘Land of the Dinosaurs’. Children learnt about various prehistoric periods right up to the modern day. They used their iPads to research dinosaurs and created their own fact files as well as exploring volcanoes and earthquakes. They even visited the Natural History Museum to learn more.

Take a look at Class 12 who made their own fossils in science using clay, shells and plaster of paris. A week later they took on the role of a palaeontologist to carefully excavate the fossils using a rage of tools documenting the process on Book Creator.

Outstanding partnership with the University of Greenwich

We work very closely with the University of Greenwich to offer teacher training on our School Direct programmes and so, were very delighted to hear that they have received an Outstanding grade from Ofsted for their Primary partnership, with a glowing report!

“The extremely strong relationship between the university and its partner schools that ensures that there is a shared vision for future developments.”
“Excellent use is made of specialist expertise within the partnership, to ensure that trainees are very well prepared to start their teaching careers,” the report stated.

The inspectors were very pleased with the quality of teaching from the School Direct teachers employed by Heronsgate and we are too.
