We have had a busy few weeks! We concluded our current topic after a trip around South Wonston collecting data. We all decided on the best location for Jack and the Beanstalk to live. The class majority came to the conclusion that Jack should live in the village because it is peaceful, there is a shop and a lovely park for him to walk his dog in! In Science we have investigated the effects of exercise on our heart rates. We discovered the more exercise we performed the faster our heart rates. It was fun trying to discover and find our pulse rates! The children have also been practicing their letter writing skills and in Maths we have been working hard on our addition calculations using a variety of equipment and methods. Among all of this busy learning we very much enjoyed watching The Wizard of Oz with the whole school. Well done Hedgehogs!

We had a surprise visitor in Hedgehog class this week and he left a little bit of a mess! From the clues left behind we worked out that the giant from Jack and the Beanstalk was responsible and that he needed our help to understand a set of instructions to grow a bean plant. We began by looking at lots of different instructions and even followed some instructions to make an origami dog! We are looking forward to creating our own next week.
In maths we have been continuing to focus on comparing different sets of numbers and the language we need to describe them. During computers this week we also practised our use of directional language, while following a simple program on Purple Mash. Well done Hedgehogs!

This week the children have had great fun creating their own gingerbread man story endings. They all worked extremely hard on their narratives and enjoyed retelling these to the class. It was lovely to see so many happy endings! In maths we have been comparing numbers and using language of more than and less than. In topic we have been drawing out own maps of South Wonston using a key. We were all pleased with the results.

The Hedgehogs have had a busy week and have settled back well into the routines of school. In English we have been focusing our learning on Fairy tales. We have been retelling famous fairy tales and describing the main characters within them. In Maths we have concentrated on developing our place value skills. Thursday was 'Roald Dahl' day and we loved creating our own imaginary sweets and describing these to our peers. We have been really impressed with how well all the children have settled into Hedgehog class and we are very proud of them.
