Hedgehogs

The Gingerbread Man (8th Nov)

Something very exciting happened in Hedgehogs today! Mrs Morgan's gingerbread man that she was going to eat after her lunch disappeared! We set off to hunt for him and found a trail of flour and some clues left by a horse, a cow and a suspicious looking fox. At the end of the trail we discovered a story map which told us the fate of the gingerbread man. 

 

We will be learning this story off by heart over the next two weeks and will be using it to help us create our own. Please take a look at the story map below and see if your child can tell you the story and teach you the actions!

This week in Hedgehog class, we have been learning about the Hindu festival Diwali! The children enjoyed learning how Diwali is celebrated and why it is an important time for Hindus. The children made diya lamps using clay and created medhi patterns using different materials. 

The children had a brilliant day today at the 'Magical Tea Party'. We spent time in the hall playing games and dancing, decorated biscuits and ended the day with some fun magical craft activities! 

This week we have been learning about 2D shapes. We've learnt new vocabulary to describe their features as well as using shapes to represent real life objects. Below are a selection that have been created so far!

The children had great fun designing and creating their rockets using junk modelling materials today. We explored using both PVA and glue sticks to join materials.

Amazing Rockets

The children loved doing the daily mile today. It was our first time on the field completing it and they all did a great job. There were lots of competitive participants. Well done Hedgehogs!
