Welcome to Hedgehog Class.
We are a mixed Year 3 and Year 4 class. Our teachers are: Mrs Jakins, Mrs Anyan and Ms Toms. Ours is a very friendly class and we all try really hard to make visitors and new children feel welcome. Everyone is valued as an individual, with their own special talents.
The Autumn term began with The Twits by Roald Dahl and a special Roald Dahl Day with fun activities, including making Mrs Twit’s glass eye biscuits. We also enjoyed a trip to Clumber Park where we sketched trees and created outdoor art. The second half of the term included the 100 anniversary of Armistice Day, which we marked with a very special assembly. To help us understand the importance of this anniversary we learnt about life for a solider in WW1 and what life was like on the home front. We were also joined by representatives from different religions for our multi-faith day where children visited stalls in a ‘market place’ atmosphere. The term was topped off by a trip to the pantomime in Lincoln, breakfast with Santa and all the usual festivities.
This term our first day back was Science Day. We carried out eight different investigations into States of Matter, giving us a fantastic grounding in the subject. Later this week, half of our class will be attending Young Voices and next week we will be visited by the author Billy Bob Buttons. Many more special events and trips are being planned so that we continue to learn through investigation and practical activities.

This year will be just as much fun. We will be studying Roald Dahl’s hilarious book ‘The Twits’ this term. Our geography topic will be ‘The UK’ and our science topic ‘Plants’. We will continue to use ‘Letterjoin’ to develop neat, joined handwriting. To see our medium term plan for Autumn 1, click here: Medium term plan summer 1 2018.
Homework is a great way to develop independent learning skills, practise what we have been learning in school and find out more about topics. We use a grid of nine activities, covering different subjects and learning styles. Over the half-term children are expected to complete three of the tasks and bring them into school to share with the rest of the class. Work is often used for display, so make sure you produce something amazing! A copy of our homework for the term can be found here: Hedgehogs Homework Autumn Term 1.
