Hedgehogs

We had another amazing half term!

Following on from our Wow moment, we have been busy learning about turtles! We have been using books to research facts about their lives we have used these facts to write our own riddles.  

We have been developing our maths skills and we have learnt to solve problems with more than one step involving all four number operations.

We have also learnt about the history of the RNLI and we were amazed to see how things have changed over time from the days of Grace Darling up to modern life boats.

We used clay to create model turtles, joining the flippers on with a cross-hatching and slip method. We painted these carefully by looking closely at patterns on turtles' shells.

Sports week has been so much fun! We have taken part in lots of exciting sporting activities, one of our favourites being a Cornish game called Smite!

As part of Cultural Diversity Day we enjoyed baking some cornish treats, in Hedgehogs Class we made Cornish Fairie biscuits.

Now we are looking forward to our school trips and Country Dance Afternoon.
