Week 8 - Literacy enrichment week


We had had a really fun week. Year 1 have been writing thier own alien fact files. They really are brilliant and the children have worked really hard on their targets. Pictures to follow.


The children have been doing lots of reading and discussion this week about different space books. Our favourite so far is "The aliens are coming" by Colin Mcnaughton. We liked the idea that we are like aliens to them! We also liked the funny words the aliens were saying and we used our phonics to make up our own alien words.


Watch the story again here...


Thank you  everyone that came in to see our exhibition, the children love sharing their work with you.


on another note, over the coming weeks we are hoping to smarten up our play house which has seen better days. If you have any spare time, spare outdoor paint or DIY skills please do see one of the hedgehog team who would be very appreciative of your help!


Thank you!

Week 6 Spikes Tea Party

We have had yet another busy week and a lovely end to the term. The children have enjoyed preparing food for Spikes tea party making sure there is enough by doubling the quantities.

We have been looking at fractions including halves and quarters and how to make sure each part is equal. We practiced this through pizza making and enjoyed eating them too!

Our resident Giant asks for help with his reading. Some children even choose to set him an extra challenge!

This week we met Spike our resident Giant who re-educated us all about the true story of Jack and the Beanstalk. He needed our help to improve his reputation! We made some posters choosing and using adjectives to describe how nice he was. He also left quite a lot of his things around the classroom so foundation stage decided to write him some letters to tell him.


Spike is very keen to have a tea party with us! Watch this space...
