Hedgehogs 3/4

Welcome to Hedgehog Class.

We are a mixed Year 3 and Year 4 class. Our teachers are: Mrs Jakins 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.

During Spring Term 2 we have enjoyed lots of fun activities, many based around our topic ‘The History of Gainsborough’.  To support our learning we visited the riverside in Gainsborough and had a fascinating afternoon at The Old Hall.

Our science topic ‘States of Matter’ was enhanced by a visit from a STEM Ambassador, who spent an afternoon with us.  We also visited Eureka! and took part in a coding activity.

Our World Book Day Celebrations also took place during the term, with the whole school joining in a series of activities about Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Harry Potter, Peter Rabbit and the poetry book, Heard it on the Playground.

This term (Summer 1) we will be learning all about Tropical Rainforests, beginning with a special Rainforest Day during week 1, followed by a trip to Woodside Falconry.  You can see our plans for this term here: Medium term plan summer 1 2019  .

The Long Term Plan for 2018/19 is available to view here: Long Term Plan 2018 to 2019


The first day of Spring Term 1 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.

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.
