Gardening Hedgehogs!

Wow! What a busy day we have had today in Hedgehog Class! We began the day by giving our outdoor area a good clean and we were excited to see some special tyres for us to plant in and explore! We then got busy planting flowers and seeds and decorating pebbles and pots. We made pictures and patterns with the stones on the grass and even had a go at using them to make an outline of each other!
In the afternoon we enjoyed some more planting and we had a go at building a giant scarecrow! We had to think carefully about how to join it together and how to make it stable enough so that it didn’t fall over!

We had a fantastic day spent outside and we would like to say a massive thank you to all the parents who brought in pots, soil, flowers and seeds for us to use!

Science Day in Hedgehogs and Badgers!

Hedgehog and Badger Class teamed up today to become crazy scientists!! We have had fun with three different experiments involving skittles, flowers, and milk and food colouring. Plus, we made constructions as part of a team with spaghetti and marshmallows and explored slime! We also went on a spring nature hunt and experimented with making huge bubbles with hoops!

We have had a fantastic day and the children worked beautifully within their small teams! Lots of scientific language and fun!! Well done everyone!

Maths, Science and Sweets!

Badger class had a great time in their maths lessons last week. We discussed deciduous trees whilst sorting piles of Autumn leaves and then created a tally to show how to write the numbers in a different way.

Later on in the week, when we were perfecting our recording skills, they created a tally and then a bar chart to show the colours of skittles in a small packet. Great fun!

Busy Beanstalk Badgers!

Badgers have had a great week and deserve a rest this weekend!

In P.E we have ‘bean’ dancing as the sunshine, raindrops and wind to make our body beanstalks grow, studying seeds and planting broad beans and sunflowers in Science, and creating 2D and 3D Giant’s castles in maths -whilst learning all about the different shapes and the funny names used to describe them! We also danced and sang to the ‘Oats and Beans’ song, made actions to tell the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and so much more…

Well done Badgers!
