 Welcome to Hedgehog Class! 

This week we started talking about our new topic 'Winter'. The children already knew a lot of information about what happens in the winter time, for example, animals hibernate in the winter, the trees are bare and that it can snow. We started talking about the Artic and the types of animals that live there. The children learnt a lot of facts about polar bears, seals and other artic animals. They wrote sentences about what they had learnt in literacy. We encouraged the children to be as independent as possible when writing.


This week in maths we explored 'time'. First the children talked about the different times of the day and what they do in the morning, afternoon and evening. All of the children were able to correctly sequence pictures showing things that happen at different parts of their day. Towards the end of the week we talk about the clock. The children learnt vocabulary such as clock face and hands. The children also learnt that when it is o'clock the big hand is always on the 12. The children really enjoyed learning about time and also enjoyed playing whats the time Mr Wolf!

Please continue to practise keywords as much as possible at home. The new keywords for next week are this, like, went, you.


Next week we will be continuing our winter topic by using clips from 'Happy Feet' to help us with our literacy. In maths we will be begin to explore addition. 

Well done to Sam for receiving the Star Award in assembly this week. smiley
