Welcome to Hedgehog Class - Years 1 & 2

Our topic for the spring term is Flavours of the World. The children will be finding out about the rainforests: different animals and plants that live there; where they are in the world, their weather and climate, and then will be comparing them to our own forests. We will look at hot and cold places and locate them on a globe. As artists, we will be learning to use clay and develop texture, shaping, moulding, and joining skills. In DT, we will learn about nutrition and keeping healthy, along with designing and making our own healthy snack. As scientists we will focus on animals’ needs, life cycles, and exercise. After half term, we will find out about plants’ needs and life cycles and, as historians, we will investigate how technology has changed in living memory.

PE days are Monday and Wednesday

Homework is set on Fridays and should be handed in on Wednesdays.
