HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Welcome back to Hedgehog Class and I hope that you have had a lovely Christmas (with lots of rest). We are all very excited about the start of a new term and can't wait for all of the amazing learning that will take place.
This term's topic is:
'We've got the whole world in our hands'
We will update this page regularly to show you all of the great stuff we have been doing in Hedgehog Class.
Mrs Bird & the Hedgehog Team
Rev. Karen Burton and Mrs Houston spent time with Hedgehog Class talking about the meaning of Advent. The children learnt about the meaning of the 4 candles of Advent - love, peace, joy and hope. They had a lovely time participating in all of the prepared activities. Thank you, to Rev. Karen Burton, Rev. Sue Nutt and Mrs Houston for all of their hard work.
The children had fun making their own Supertatoes at home. We love them all!
This week we have been reading the story 'Supertato' by Sue Hendra. This funny story about a superhero potato brought about an in-depth discussion on potatoes. The children then enjoyed tasting potatoes cooked in different ways. Yum yum!
(photos coming soon...)
We have been having lots of fun this week in Hedgehog Class. On Friday we had a 'jellytastic' day where the children got the chance to learn about the Creation Story, learn jellyfish facts, make their own jellyfish and even eat jelly!
Whether you're new to Hedgehog Class or are experienced Hedgehogs, we welcome you all to join us in a fun-packed term where lots of learning will take place. This term the children will focus on the topics 'Magical Me' and 'Come Dine with Me'. Please feel free to come into school at the end of the day and take a look at what your child has been learning.
The Hedgehog Team are always happy to answer any questions you have, deal with any concerns or worries and promise to take the very best care or your child. Come and speak to us at any time!

Thank you to everyone who attended the Phonics Workshop but don't panic if you were unable to make it. I have uploaded a short video to help you with the pronunciation of the sounds your children will be learning. Please come and speak with a member of the team if you are unsure about any of the sounds. We are always happy to help :-)
