Welcome to Hedgehog Class.
We are a mixed Year 3 and Year 4 class. Our teachers are: Mrs Jakins, Ms Toms, Mrs Beat and Mrs Burnett. 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.
This term we are learning about the Romans in Britain. We have already enjoyed a Roman Day to kick off our topic and will be producing a variety of non-fiction texts about the Roman invasion and what life was like in Britain during this period.
We are also looking forward to a visit from children’s author Adam Bushnell this term. A link to his website can be found here, http://www.adambushnell.co.uk/ in case you would like to purchase a book for him to sign when he visits. Our newsletter for this term contains more information and some important dates: Hedgehogs newsletter Autumn 2019

Some of the exciting events that took place last year:
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.
