Welcome to Hedgehogs
Please click on the link below to view the Autumn Term Overview.
Hedgehogs have had a fantastic half term. We really enjoyed developing our skills in Forest School building a fire and toasting marshmallows for a delicious smore! In DT we have learnt how to join fabric together in three different ways, sewing, gluing and using safety pins. We experienced a fabulous science workshop that taught us all about healthy eating and how to keep our bodies fit.
Hedgehogs have really enjoyed this half terms topic of ‘Explorers’. We were very lucky and even had a visit from a pilot! We have used our geographical knowledge to compare two different places. In science we have studied the different parts of a plant and a tree. Hedgehogs have also been very creative we have; designed our own fruit smoothie, learnt about rhythm and even designed our own delivery robot! Thank you to all the parents and carers that have been in to help this half term.
We started our term immersed in our new topic of Space! Space training camp was first, we had to complete the mission of an obstacle course, climbing ropes and jumping. We then learnt all about the life of Neil Armstrong and built Lego rocket ships working in teams.
Focusing on value of confident communicators all children worked brilliantly together to become Astronauts!
In maths we have been learning to count accurately and to represent numbers in different ways.
In Forest School we created a Summer scene made out of natural resources, as part of our work on the seasons.
In Year 1 we have launched our Amazing Animals topic and we are exploring the text, Monkey Puzzle. Here we are retelling the story!
