Hedgehogs class has completed another busy term as we continue our learning.
Our history work continued with learning about the Great Fire of London. The climax had to be the day we burned London, in the safe fire pit, with the help of our new Forest Schools teacher. The photos tell the story.
Science week was great fun. We learned about the amazing achievements of Stephen Hawking, despite his physical difficulties; we watched the amazing Fizz Pop science show and we investigated what happens if you put a few raisins into a jar and add lemonade. If you don’t know what happens, ask a Hedgehog or try it out yourself. Make a guess first!
We continued our science topic on staying healthy, including playing a game based on the Dirty Bertie books. It should help us remember how to stay healthy by practicing personal hygiene.
World Book day helped us to celebrate books and reading. We have redecorated our reading elephant with photos of this year’s class. Fortunately, none of the children dressed as Harry Potter characters had mastered the really dangerous spells.
We enjoyed sharing the homework, including a couple of powerpoints about exciting visits and some lovely written work. Thank you to all who helped with this.
Two other memorable days were for Comic relief, when Hedgehogs class and the rest of the school seemed to have turned red, and the Strings roadshow at the end of term when we were entertained and educated by a marvelous string trio. The electric violin was the favourite!
Now we are ready to start our new topic, learning about Africa.
