Animals spotted at Heronshaw

Year 1 have been spotting different animals homes in the playground as part of their English lessons! I wonder if you can guess which story they are looking at?  

What have year 2 been up to this week?

Year 2 have been learning all about the colourful and vibrant homes, clothes and jewellery of the Ndebele people who live in South Africa. We practised our drawing skills to see if we could replicate some of the amazing patterns. We think we did really well….take a look!
