  • Dinosaurs

    Published 11/05/22

    We are really getting our 'teeth' into our Dinosaur topic this term. We often take our learning 'in the moment' here in Hedgehogs. When we heard that a Meglodon Shark tooth had been found on the beach at Bawdsey we just had to put our phonics lesson on pause to do some research. We found out facts such as, how long ago they lived and how big they were. The then took our learning that bit further and measured exactly how big they were outside, using a metre stick and ourselves! We were very surprised just how big they were! From measuring the shark we then drew the shark, it's teeth and even its food. You will be pleased to know hat phonics resumed shortly afterwards.

  • Number Day 2022

    Published 20/01/22

    We will be raising money for the NSPCC on Friday February 4th. We are asking the children to dress up as ‘Anything to do with Maths’ for a £1 donation.

    We will also be running a cake sale after school so please get baking for this good cause.

    We will be talking in assembly about what the children could wear and we are sure that we will have lots of suggestions, for example: clocks, dice, calculators, rulers, pie, write number sentences on an old t-shirt etc.

    There are also ideas on the Internet if you google’ Number Day dress up ideas’.

    The children will be taking part in Maths activities during the day and hopefully having lots of fun while learning.
