It has been another busy term for hedgehogs. These are just some snippets of the things we have been doing.In Science we continued learning about living things by investigating the behaviour of worms. Take a look at the gallery below at the difference 20 worms made to the soil in the wormery!
The children worked hard at preparing ‘Tinsel and Teatowels’ and their costumes looked great. Congratulations to those who had to wear their school uniform for dramatic reasons! The play was well received by parents and other visitors, as well as by the other children and staff who watched it on Monday. We are wondering whether some people have careers ahead of them as teachers, office staff or school inspectors!
We showed some great concentration on paper weaving for our calendars. Following the visit of Justin Tomlinson, MP, Hedgehogs class are seen clearly labelled as members of the House of Commons (green stickers, on the left) and the House of Lords (red stickers, on the right).
In the last week of term the children enjoyed a party with Meerkats class. They behaved very well and everybody had a lovely time, even though not everybody won each game. It was good practice for not arguing if you are ‘out’ in a game. Fortunately there were plenty of games that did not involve being ‘out’.
A big thank you to all the very generous children of Haydon Wick who have brought shoeboxes packed with treats for children less fortunate than themselves.
This term Hedgehogs class looked wonderful dressed in green, yellow, spots and Pudsey-related clothingfor Children In Need. Many thanks for your contributions which will be shared between Children in Need and Wiltshire Air Ambulance.
We were thrilled to watch a Greater Spotted Woodpecker outside our classroom today. He was pecking at the nesting box by the window and has changed the shape of the entrance. Maybe he was trying to get in! We identified him by looking at the RSPB website; we know he is male because he had some red on his head as well as his tummy.
