Welcome to Hedgehogs!

I hope everyone had lovely Easter break!

Stomp, crash, roar! Watch out – there are dinosaurs about! Yes, that’s right, we’re travelling back in time to the age of the dinosaurs.

This half term, we’ll look closely at ancient fossils and study reptiles to understand how dinosaurs may have lived and eventually died out. We’ll learn about the great fossil hunter, Mary Anning, and follow in her footsteps, studying dinosaur teeth and bones to find out what dinosaurs liked to eat. Learning dinosaur names, writing fantastic fact files and creating exciting dinosaur stories are some of the other activities we’ll be involved in this half term. We’ll also use our artistic skills to design dinosaur landscapes.

I look forward to a great term and of course, any questions or concerns, please don't keep them to yourself, just come and have a chat.

Reading


Reading is a very important area of learning and we aim to help develop a love of books and reading within all of our children.

Encouraging the children to become more independent in their learning choices is a focus for us and one way that we can do this is to enable the children to change their reading books independently. They all know which books they can choose from and they are reminded each day that they are able to change their reading books as regularly as they would like. This allows them to begin to take some responsibility for their own learning but also read books of their own choosing which helps instill within them a love of reading for pleasure.

As the children are only at the early stages of this it would be helpful if you could remind them that they should change their reading book if you know that they need to. Many of the children are enjoying having this independence but reminders are always useful!

Thank you for your support in this matter.

Notices

The children will have PE on Wednesdays and Fridays, however I request PE kits are in school from Monday-Friday as this could change on occasions.

Forest school will happen every other Tuesday. I will remind the children to bring their forest school kit.
