Welcome to Hedgehogs class page!
We are a mixed year 4,5,6 class. We are enthusistic and hard working and strive to give our very best!
SATs week is well underway for the year 6's! They're enjoying starting the day with breakfast and sensory circuits before their tests. All the children have been trying their hardest and making us proud! :)
Year 5's, meanwhile, are completing an independent project about the Roman Gods on PowerPoint. Ready for a presentation on Friday.
Planets class have had rather a quiet end of week as they have been taking part in their sponsored silence. The money raised from this will be given to St Mary's church, Bluntisham, who will then pass it on to Faith in Action Ministries, in Pondicherry, India. So far the children have raised £87 from their sponsored silence and a further £30 from the tuck shop. There are still many children to bring in their sponsor forms so we will update next week with the grand total. A BIG well done for what has been raised so far!! :)
Children have also been learning about Ernest Shackleton and his adventure to the Antarctic. The children have done lots of research and have ended the week by writing in role of Shackleton. One child quoted today that learning so much about the expedition and the explorer has really helped them to understand the topic and has helped their writing today! :) It's always lovely to hear such lovely, positive comments.
And talking of positive comments, Mrs Ray was overwhelmed today by the response to her Spanish lesson. The children in Planets class are at an advantage to having a Spanish teacher in their classroom and are really starting to pick up the language. Well done Mrs Ray and well done Planets class for putting so much effort and enthusiasm into the lesson.
Reading Challenge this week is 96%....so close to beating this! We need every child to have at least 5 comments for the week to beat our best and make it to 100%....can we do it before Easter?!
The first class to achieve 100% will be rewarded with a special prize – A mad hatter’s tea party
Planets have had a fun Book Week looking at the traditional tale - Little Red Riding Hood and an alternative version of the story by Anthony Browne - 'Into the Forest'. We have completed descriptive writing tasks and beautiful charcoal drawings. We have also done a lot of drama, including creating live news reports on the events in the story and reinacting the story in the role of the wolf and Little Red. See some of our dramatic scenes below!
Planets class have been learning about Christianity in other countries, including a charity organisation called Faith in Action Ministries. They have been learning about a Christian group in Pondicherry, India that raises money by goat farming. They then contribute the money to schools, churches, and doctor surgeries.
To raise money for FIAM, they have decided to take part in a sponsored silence (up to an hour of silence) followed by an afterschool tuck shop. As a result, we would like to ask for sponsorship for the sponsored silence and donations/sales at the tuck shop. Thank you in advance for your support.
Planets class are able to answer questions about this charity, so please ask them for more information.
Sponsored Silence and tuck shop to be held on Thursday 9th March.
Please return form and money by Friday 10th March.
(see attached for Sponsership form if you have lost yours)
We also had some great costumes for world book day on 2.3.17
We have worked very hard on our performance for assembly. The children have been so enthusiastic about events taking place with our Extreme Earth curriculum and have had so much fun.
This week the children of Planets class have been learning about Mount Everest and expeditions. They have then written some persuasive texts trying to persuade the reader to climb Mount Everest. These will be available to read in the classroom very soon.
The children have also been working very hard on their Spanish vocabulary this week - describing themselves and others. We've had some interesting games of Guess Who in Spanish!
