Terrific Trip

The Hedgehogs had a wonderful day at The Tropical Butterfly House! We had fun exploring the dino trail and meeting all the different dinosaurs. We even met Rexy, the friendly T-Rex who actually moved! We saw meerkats, crocodiles, porcupines, otters and many more amazing animals. We had the best day and learnt a lot! Well done to The Hedgehogs for behaving beautifully – Miss Betts was very proud of you all.

The Magic Egg

Over the past few weeks, the Hedgehogs have been spending a lot of time planning a story based around a special egg. They came up with some amazing ideas! After reading their plans, it was time to start writing ~ the end results were truly magical!

We are Creative!

The Hedgehogs have been very creative this week; both in the classroom and on the computer. The dinosaur silhouette pictures they created are beautiful and will be on display in our classroom shortly. This week, our ICT session was inspired by Piet Mondrian and his abstract style!

Dino Inspired Learning

During maths, the Hedgehogs have been using their measuring skills to mark out the dimensions of different dinosaurs…we nearly needed a bigger playground! They have also been spending some time researching one of their favourites dinosaurs, the Tyrannosaurus Rex.
