Hedgehog Class News 19.01.24

We have had a lovely week here in Hedgehogs! Here’s what we got up to:

In English, we have been exploring the story “Handa’s Surprise”, through practical roleplay and retelling of the story, we ordered the events in chronological order in order to be able to innovate and change the story.

In art we created some absolutely fantastic 3D sculptures – I was very impressed with their perseverance.

We are still focusing on Shabbat in RE, and this week we learned all of the things that Jewish people do to celebrate it, and what they are not allowed to do – we were shocked to learn they wouldn’t be able to play on electronic devices during Shabbat!

In computing, we carried on our learning all about programming, with the use of our Beebots! In science, we explored the concept of seasons, observing and understanding the natural changes in our environment and how plants change depending on the weather.

We are looking forward to our school trip on Monday to the Pitt Rivers museum – just to remind you all to bring a packed lunch (if you have not requested one), and a coat and water bottle.

Just to let you know I will be in Woodlands for the Year 5/6 residential next week, but Hedgehogs will be left in the very capable hands of Mrs Howell and Mrs Bungay – Mrs Howell is looking forward to spending her last week with everyone.

Have a great weekend.
