Welcome to Hedgehog Class - Years 1 & 2

 Our topic for the summer term is Life on Earth.  In the first half, the children will be finding out about Grace Darling, her life in Victorian times, lighthouses, and her heroic actions in 1838.  Children will look at The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch story and be writing their own versions.  In DT, children will learn how to sew a running stitch and design and make bunting to help celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.  After half term, they will learn about different geographical features and compare Newbury to the coastal village of Lepe in Hampshire.  As scientists, they will learn to identify common plants and trees, investigate what seeds need to grow and what plants need to stay healthy.  As artists, children will learn about weavings, rubbings and collage. 

PE this term will be on Monday and Friday.
