Class teacher: Miss E Holland
Today was number day! We took part in lots of maths activities including paint number sentences, 1 minute challenges and building models using 3D shapes. We were very lucky and got to participate in a 'Crack the Code' treasure hunt around the school.
For the next 2 terms we are very lucky because we are going to be doing Forest school every other week! Today we had our first session. Mr Twist showed us all around our forest school and we played lots of games.
Happy New Year! This term we will be completing a range of challenges set by the Jolly Postman. He will be sending us codes to crack to reveal letters to characters from traditional tales. We will then be learning to tell these stories ourselves, as well as writing our very own stories.
We have been doing yoga during our PE lessons this term. We have learned lots of different yoga moves and how to stretch up tall like a rocket ship and stand wide like a flying saucer.
Our term started with a spaceship crash landing in our playground! There was a letter from an astronaut, explaining that we needed to look after his spaceship whilst he went to fetch some parts to repair it. Whilst he was gone, we completed lots of activities to find out about life in space. As part of our project, we had a visit from a Space Dome. The big black dome looked a little scary at first, as it filled the school hall, but we crawled inside and it was amazing! We saw lots of stars projected onto the roof of the dome and we found out all about the night sky.
This term we are learning all about space!
Teddy Bears' Picnic
The children have had a wonderful first term in Hedgehog class and today we celebrated by having our Teddy Bears' Picnic! We made jam sandwiches and paw print biscuits. We played musical statues with our bears and then had our picnic.
See you next term Hedgehogs!
Today we have been developing our drawing skills. All the children did an observational drawing of a bike. We talked about the shapes we could see and the different sizes to draw. Some of the children then drew and painted flowers. We talked about mixing colours.
Maths - Shape, Space and Measure
This term we have been exploring shape, space and measure in maths. We have been looking at 2D shapes and learning how to describe them. We have also been learning about length and how to use blocks or rulers to measure!
The Hedgehogs have had a brilliant first term at school. They have settled in and made lot of new friends. We have been on our first trip to The Literature Festival, where we listened to the story 'Why are there so many book about bears.'
