Welcome to Hedgehogs!
We have loved learning to sketch in the style of Quentin Blake! Check out the watercolour paintings we have had a go at - we think we could be Roald Dahl's new illustrators!
We have had a busy first couple of weeks back at school. Our new topic, 'Chocoholics', is going down very well (sorry!) and the children have embraced it with enthusiasm. We began with a chocolate tasting WOW starter - the children tasted 7 different chocolates and described them according to smell, appearance, taste and texture, using thoughtful adjectives.
Tasty - James
Slimy - Amber
Smooth - Nora
Sweet - Joey
Scrumptious - Alana
Milky - Reese
Crunchy - Fletcher K
Sloshy - Oliver
Hard - Matilda
They then ordered them from favourite to least favourite and wrote sentences to explain why. There were some that they loved, but some that they really weren't keen on!
In geography, we have been learning about the journey of the cocoa bean. We have designed booklets to explain the different processes that chocolate has to go through before it tastes delicious - there are a lot!
We are enjoying our class book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and are very eager to find out who wins the fifth golden ticket! We were inspired by Quentin Blake's illustrations and have been developing our sketching skills to draw our own versions. The children have done an amazing job I think even Quentin would be impressed with their pictures!
