 Welcome to Hedgehog Class!

It has been a very exciting week in Hedgehog Class as we started our new topic 'space'. The children have talked about what they already know and also what they would like to find out about space. The children learnt about the first moon landing and also read a story called 'The Man on the Moon'. They wrote about the different jobs that Bob had to do on the moon.

This week Mrs Porter and Mrs Hill set space challenges. Each day the children could choose whether to complete the challenge and each day a different activity was set. The children have been so excited about them and have been really proud of what they have achieved independently. Well done Hedgehogs!


 The children have now started to learn about digraphs.  This is when there are two letters that go together to make one sound. The digraphs we have looked at so far are sh, ch, th, qu and ng. The children have learnt the songs and actions for each of these digraphs to help  remember them.


In maths we have been learning about 2D shapes. 2D shapes are flat shapes and can be found all around us. Can you find any shapes at home? We learnt about a square, rectangle, triangle and circle and started to talk about their properties, for example, how many sides and corners it has. 


Last Friday we went into Celebration Assembly. A big well done to Marley who received a Star Award this week for his excellent space writing.
