Welcome to our new Hedgehog Class for 2016-17

Friday 14th July 2017

After having great fun trekking up to Hollowbrook wood with all our equipment, we enjoyed a whole morning of Forest School activities led by Mrs Jones today. We remembered all the rules for staying safe and enjoyed building dens, helping with the Kelly Kettle, whittling willow and toasting marshmallows and fruit bread on the fire. Delicious!

July 2017

We are really enjoying our “S32” Topic in Hedgehog Class; we have explored maps, atlases and globes, sketched the view from the school field, planted vegetables and made models of our favourite buildings. We didn’t let the rain stop us getting out and about on Tuesday, either- with hoods up we enjoyed a walk all around the village, taking photos of all our special places and editing them on iPads back in school.

Friday 16th June 2017

What a fun morning we had at Hope Valley College’s Infant Sports Day! We took part in skipping, running, dribbling, balancing and throwing activities, using foam javelins and making friends with children from primary schools from all over the valley. A big “thank you” to the friendly Y10 helpers who showed us what to 🙂

9th June 2017

This week we have been recapping what we know about e-safety, and how to stay safe when we are online. As a class we thought of three basic rules for staying safe, creating a “Class Charter” which we all agreed on and signed. It is now on display in our classroom:

May 2017

In the last week of the half term we rounded off our Romans Topic with an Italian cooking day, making delicious pizzas and cookies to share with our gown-ups during Reading Together. We also enjoyed using our new water pump and water tray as well as the bikes and crates outside in the sunshine!

27th April 2017

What an exciting time we had when the History Van came to visit. We found out about the Roman invasion in Britain and tried on some amazing Roman clothing, including a very heavy helmet!

April 2017

Our new Topic for this half term is “The Romans”. As well as having an exciting visit from the History Van, we will be reading and writing  Roman myths, learning about the human body and how soldiers stayed healthy, and playing in our Roman pizza parlour role play area- yum!

Chatsworth “House Style” Exhibition

To finish off our fabulous Topic we had a lovely day at Chatsworth House, looking at the dresses, costumes and accessories on display, enjoying a picnic lunch and exploring the gardens in the Spring sunshine. We didn’t want to go home!

March 2017- Grand Designs Topic

We have really enjoyed learning about all things DT-related during this Topic. In Science week we shared our amazing homework projects with our grown ups, as well as making stomp rockets with Boffin Joel which we launched across the classroom! We also had a visit from Poppy’s mummy, who talked to us about her job as a designer and helped us to design our own toys.

Thursday 2nd March 2017

World Book Day

We had a fabulous time on Thursday  sharing our favourite stories, writing book reports, and of course dressing up as all kinds of wonderful characters! Well done everybody 🙂

Spring 2017

We are all very excited about our new cross-curricular Topic “Grand Designs”. We have been busy already in Hedgehog Class designing clothes in our Dressmaker’s and mixing cement outside in the Builder’s Yard. Have a look at our Topic Web to find out more:

February 2017

The last few weeks have been all about birds in Hedgehog Class! We have learned to identify common British birds, made tasty fat-ball bird feeders and taken part in the RSPB’s Big Schools’ Bird Watch.

To finish off our Mysterious Tales topic we have also learned to use the data logger, using its sensors to test the temperature of the Three Bears’ porridge!

Friday 13th January 2017

We have made a great start to our “Mysterious Tales” Topic in Hedgehog Class. As well as painting fairy tale characters, playing in the Candy Cottage role play area and sharing books in our new Reading Corner wigwam, this week we have hosted a visit from children’s author Caryl Hart. It was amazing listening to her read her very own stories! We also enjoyed our first Musical Gems session of the year, and played out in the year’s first snowfall!

January 2017

Happy New Year! We are all ready for an exciting new term in Hedgehog Class with our Topic “Mysterious Tales”. We will read and act out fairytales, write stories, and meet a real-life author. Have a look at the Topic Web below to find out more:

Thursday 15th December 2016

After weeks of hard work practising our singing, dancing and acting out it was finally time to get dressed up and perform our wonderful Nativity play “Whoops-A-Daisy Angel”! We gave two performances in church which the mums, dads, grannies and grandpas loved. Well done children- you were absolute stars!

 Wednesday 7th December 2016

As part of our Coasts and Rivers Topic we went on a magical school trip to Poole’s Cavern in Buxton. It was full of twinkly Christmas lights and we saw stalactites and stalagmites. Our guide Ashley told us exciting stories about the people and creatures who have lived in the cave across the ages (including a dragon!) and we even saw Santa’s grotto.

 December 2016

December is now upon us and as well as our usual classwork- including our fab Monday PE sessions with Mrs Gaywood (look at the shapes we are making!)- we have begun preparations for Christmas. Last week kind mums and dads came into school to help us to make cards and decorations. What do you think?

Tuesday 22nd November

 Ah har there matey! We had the most wonderful time on “Pirate Day” looking at our amazing homemade ships, singing sea chanteys, writing about fish, making treasure maps and baking delicious gingerbread pirates. Well done to all the children (and adults!) who looked fabulous in their costumes.

We are currently enjoying “Friendship Fortnight” in Hedgehogs Class (14th- 25th November) and as well as learning about bullying in PSE we are having great fun using team work to play, share and solve a range of practical problems together.

Our Topic for this term is “Pirates”- we will learn all about coasts, rivers and caves, as well as playing in our wonderful pirate ship! Have a look at our Topic Web to find out more:

A big “thank you” to Mr Edwards and Fred for bringing their amazing New Holland tractor onto the playground for Hedgehogs to explore. It was the perfect end to our World Kitchen Harvest Topic!

Have a look at us enjoying Forest School- making self-portraits from natural objects, working together and enjoying walking up to the woods whatever the weather!

 

This term our topic is “World Kitchen”, and we will be learning all about food, farming and Harvest in Britain and abroad. Have a look at our Topic Web below to find out more:

It was an exciting first term in Hedgehogs Class. We started with an outdoor nature trail hunting for autumnal objects. Then we learned about nocturnal animals and made bat and owl paintings in the green zone. In the last week of term we read the Little Red Hen, baked bread and petted a real-life chicken which was amazing!
