Welcome to Hedgehogs!
We have had a good start to the Summer Term. We have been very busy settling back in to our routines and have had a very exciting day today travelling back in time! We made our own control panels to program our time machine and carefully entered the time travel code to ensure we travelled to the right era! We found lots of picture clues of old machines and inventions and discovered that our new topic is…
We have had a very busy week! Our whole school topic is "Where the Wild Things are" by Maurice Sendak... we have been doing lots of fun "Wild Things" themed learning (we will show you next Wednesday!) and have all enjoyed looking at each other's favourite book character outfits today!
On Monday we had a great start to our new half term on our first class trip to The River and Rowing Museum in Henley. We learnt lots about the River Thames and the history of rowing/ boats, learnt about the British artist John Piper, saw the Wind in the Willows exhibition and some classic children's TV displays (the grown ups were particularly excited to see Bagpuss!) AND made our very own screen printings of the River Thames.
The children were very well behaved and we all had a fantastic day. The children have written some brilliant recounts to remember it by! Thank you to everyone who made the the trip possible. See below for photos of our day...
In maths we have been learning about time. We have thought about what time different events happen in the day, time language, and how long time really is... see below for photos of us seeing what we can do in a minute!
Welcome back! I hope you have all had a good Christmas break and that the children are all well rested!
We had an exciting start to our week yesterday- Harry the Hedgehog made us a treasure hunt to help us find out about our new topic. We braved the elements, followed the map and pieced together the picture clues. We found some treasure at the end (we are still wondering how it got there, and who it belongs to...!) and had great fun along the way...
