We are having great fun this week learning some new maths vocabulary. We have been investigating 'heavier' and 'lighter'. We used the balance scales to find out which item was heavy and which was light. We then had great fun in the sand tray exploring this theme. We enjoyed finding out which container was the heaviest when we filled it with sand!


                "This is lighter"


             "The cup is heavier"






                                                "The blue bucket will be the heaviest"

Week beginning 17th January 2022


We have been reading 'The Jar of Happiness' by Ailsa Burrows. This inspired us to talk about what makes us happy. 





We are very eggcited this week as we are incubating some chicken eggs in our classroom. 






Week beginning 3rd January 2022


Happy New Year! This week we have been learning about how people in Englad celebrate New Year's Eve. We watched the firework display in London. This inspired us to create our own firework collages.







We also wrote our own new year's resolutions!







What is your new year's resolution?


We even had fun having a new year's eve party in the home corner. It was great fun counting down to midnight!



Week beginning 6th December 2021


We have been learning about Hedgehogs this week. We learnt about hibernation. We learnt that hedgehogs often bury themselves in leaves in order to hibernate. We took part in our own hibernation experiment to see if leaves actually do keep hedgehogs warm. We had two hot water bottles filled with warm water which we pretended were hedgehogs. We placed one hot water bottle under a pile of leaves and the other on its own not in a pile of leaves. We predicted that the hot water bottle hedgehog in the leaves would stay warmer and we were right!








We have really enjoyed painting our own hedgehogs!




Week beginning 26th November 2021

This week we have been really enjoying our maths learning. We have been investigating the number 5. We found different ways to show the composition of 5.


We used playdough, Numicon shapes and cubes! Not only did we become more confident about learning the composition of 5 but we had great fun in doing so!




Making 5 using two different coloured cubes!



Making playdough snakes with 5 pegs on them!

Autumn Tree Collages

Our autumn welly walk inspired us to collage autumn trees. We could use any resources from the classroom and make them how we wanted to. Mrs Spicer has put them on display because we think they are beautiful! Well done everyone!

Week beginning 18th October 2021


We have read the story 'Super Duper You'. Mrs Spicer explained tha she thought we were all 'Super Duper' because we have now finished our first half term at school. Well done Hedgehog Class! 



Reading this book inspired us to think about superheroes! We wrote about superheroes, painted pictures of them and even built them superhero hideouts! We have had lots of fun with our learning this week!



                                                          'This is Hulk!'




                                                          'I love Elsa'




Cleo wrote that her family are her superheroes!



Elsa is Layla's favourite superhero.

Week beginning 11th October 2021

This week we have been extending our mathematical vocabulary. We have been using the words 'bigger', 'smaller', 'more', 'less' when comparing objects. 




We used these words whilst making playdough balls that weighed the same as each other. The children had to decide whether they needed more/less playdough! It was great fun using the balance scales to weigh our playdough balls!




The children set up a party in the house! It was lovely to hear the children deciding what they needed for their party. The song 'Happy Birthday' was sung with cheer and joy! What a happy class we have!


We have had another fantastic week, I wonder what we will learn and play next week?

Week beginning 4th October 2021


In our RE session we have been thinking about our special places. We got to recreate our special place either by constructing it, collaging it or drawing it. We then said what our special place was with the rest of the class. Here are some examples.           



  My Speical place is the park. It is special because it is fun. I like the slide the best.



 My speical place is Park Dean. It is special because I love the arcade. I feel happy and I like the soft play too.




Week beginning 27th September


As part of our topic Marvellous Me we have been painting self-portraits. We thought carefully about colour and the features that we needed to paint. We thought our art was so good that we even made picture frames for them! Here is a selection for you to see! We hope you like them.







Settling in at School!


The new children have been fantastic and have settled in so well to school life at Stoborough School. We have loved exploring our classroom inside and out! We have made lots of new friends!
