Welcome to Hedgehog class! Our teacher is Mrs Jackson, who lots of us know really well, as she taught us in Nursery. She has been teaching for 14 years, and has worked at Bedwell for the last 4. Her favourite things are Lindt chocolate and reading her Kindle. She doesn’t like running very much, and is scared of spiders!
Home learning ideas:
Our latest news:
Computing - We have been developing our art skills in computing this term as well as successfully learning how to login independently, save our work and print it. We have enjoyed exploring different artists and using some of their artistic techniques on the computer.
English - Over the past half term we have thoroughly enjoyed learning the story of the Magic Porridge Pot. We couldn’t believe it back in January when we came into class and found a miniature town had been flooded on the carpet in wet, sticky porridge... It was quite a sight!
History - Following on from our English unit we have been learning all about the Great Fire of London. We think you’ll agree that we have picked up a huge amount of information and really enjoyed retelling what happened and how it started. The houses we made for homework were fantastic and have taken pride of place in our library area and classrooms.
English - Our next English unit will see us focussing on settings and character descriptions. Our model text is called Shipwrecked, and will help us to focus on how we can use our senses and imagination to describe people and places in interesting and engaging ways. We will be developing the way we structure our sentences, using conjunctions like because and so to tie ideas together.
Maths - Over the course of the term, we will be looking at a variety of methods for additon and subtraction, including partitioning, jumping on a number line and formal column addition. We will also be using and applying our maths skills, using addition, subtraction, multiplication and division to solve problems in real life contexts involving money and measures.
Science - We will be continuing to explore living things and their habitats. We will identify differences between things that are living, dead or have never been alive, and learn about the key features that all living things share. We will explore the places where particular animals live, and think about the ways in which these are linked to their characteristics.
Humanities - We will be learning about the exotic South American country, Ecuador. We will locate Ecuador on a variety of maps, recognising continents and oceans, and will also identify the Ecuadorian flag. We will then compare the climate and physical features of Ecuador with those found n the UK. This will lead us to explore what it would be like to live in Ecuador, looking at traditional and modern clothing, food and houses.
