As part of our Roman project we made replica Roman Shields.
In Science we have been looking at making circuits and which materials are conductors and insulators of electricity.
Welcome to Hedgehog Class!
We are Rocket Scientists!
Hedgehogs have just completed a fabulous science week looking at rockets. Hedgehogs have literally been doing ‘rocket science’ with us considering Newton’s laws of motion, the principles of propulsion and aerodynamics. We also designed and tested our own rockets and considered the variables of launching rockets. Special thanks for the help of Barnaby Relph (Olive’s and Henry’s dad) as we attached a Go-Pro to one of his rockets and took some fabulous stills of the school.

Maths and English
Hedgehogs have been working hard to extend their knowledge and understanding of fractions this half-term. They applied their learning from English lessons to prepare non-fiction leaflets, posters and Power-Point presentations about fractions for a Bring Your Adult to School session. This session was very well-supported, Hedgehogs enjoyed being the 'teachers' and they did a great job showing their adults how resources are used in the classroom to extend understanding. A big 'thank you' to all of the adults for their support.
