Class teacher: Miss E Holland
At the start of term, Hedgehog class had an exciting delivery of caterpillars. Over this term we have watched them grow and grow and GROW... until they formed their chrysalis. After waiting patiently, the children were very excited to find we had 5 butterflies! The children wanted to take care of them and decided it would be kind and respectful to release them so that they could find flowers in their own natural habitat.
Welcome Back! We hope you had a wonderful Easter break and are ready to begin the busy Summer term in Reception!
We have been learning about different journeys. We have been thinking about journeys around the world. This term we were very lucky and we learned how to do African dance, Indian dance and a dance from New Zealand.
Circus Skills Term 3
Roll up, roll up the Circus is in town! Today we enjoyed the circus skills workshop which helped us prepare for our own circus performance later in the term. We learned to be plate spinners, jugglers, acrobats and clowns.
The children have been working on planning their own class assemblies this Term. They choose objects to place in the middle of our circle, they write their own prayer to share and choose how to introduce and end our assembly. The children are becoming very independent at thinking of their own prayers.
Term 2 - Pirates
Ahoy there! This term we have enjoyed lots of pirate activities. During maths we have been ordering numbered treasure and finding one more and one less using pirate ships. This Friday we enjoyed our pirate party day. The children made pirate biscuits and built model pirate boats to float in the water tray. They also had lots of fun doing a pirate dance and playing some pirate games.
Welcome Hedgehog class 2018
