Autumn 2 Week 4: our learning this week!

posted 1 Dec 2017, 08:16 by Aisling Farrell

This week the children have been practicing finding 1 less of numbers up to 100. They were very resourceful and used number lines and 100 squares to support them...


We've also been making salt dough hedgehogs, linked to support our English learning immersion in these hibernating creatures, using different techniques and materials to make them look as realistic as possible. Look out for painted ones next week...


We've been researchers again this week, finding out lots of facts about hedgehogs! Can your child remember an interesting fact about these nocturnal foragers?

We also finished our AMAZING non-fiction book astronaut book, which we shared in celebration assembly and which we are extremely excited about sharing with the Y4/5s when they come to visit! The children all worked their socks off to produce interesting, descriptive and neat writing and we are so proud of the end result! Feel free to pop in to have a read!

Continuous Provision

The children have begun thinking about and constructing what they think a hedgehog hotel should look like and what it should include. The children will also be making a hedgehog home from the boxes that parents and carers have kindly donated in the next couple of weeks. 

Thank you for another great week everyone!
