Hedgehog

Welcome to Hedgehog Class!

 

 

Welcome to Hedgehog class 2018-19

This week we have enjoyed exploring our Arctic activities in the classroom. We made igloos using sugar cubes and used small diggers to create stories and adventures. The children have given the Bee Bot directions to meet all the Arctic animals. The foundation children used the playdough and different tools to create their own Arctic animals. They have also enjoyed using large boxes to make their own adventures in the outside area.

 

On Friday we became real explorers and made our very own campfire using the fire pit. We enjoyed toasting marshmallows and bread.

This week in Hedgehog class, we have begun our Polar Regions topic by exploring an Arctic scene. We found that Robert Falcon Scott had been exploring the Arctic. This weekend, think about what you think he would see as he looked out of his tent. This discussion will be used as part of next week's Big Write.  Have a look at the Video clip he has sent us!

We have had a busy week in Hedgehog class. On Wednesday, we had a WOW basketball day and enjoyed learning new skills with the worlds tallest basketball player. On Thursday, we invited our parents into class to help us make a healthy breakfast. It was yummy!

We also walked to the church to have a look around ready for our Harvest Festival on Friday.

Hedgehog class have had a busy start to the term. We are looking at the book “Supertato” and have learnt the story through drama and role play. We have designed and made traps to catch the Evil Pea, we have become superheroes and made some super writing. The Early Years children have been practicing their name, whilst the Y1 children have been writing captions and sentences for the story. We have had great fun counting peas and potatoes.

In Hedgehog class, we have had a visit from our parents! At our 'Maths Stay and Play' and we had lots of fun doing different maths games and activities. There were dominoes, ice creams, pirates, biscuits, ladybirds and a number crossword. Someone had even cut up our number lines, but luckily we could put them back together...

Hedgehogs have continued with their minibeast theme, looking at bees this week.  We took the bees that we made for a search for nectar so they would be able to make their honey!

 

      

Independent writing

 

We are so proud of our wonderful independent writing. We have been learning about bees and how they make honey and we have written all about it.
