A Trip to the Park!

As a treat during the last week Hedgehog Class spent the morning over on the field. We took some of our favourite things to do and sat in the shade under the trees. We even took our snack and had a play on the park before returning to school for lunch!

Baking Bread in Hedgehog Class

To help us learn about farms and where our food comes from we read the story ‘The Little Red Hen’ in Hedgehog Class. We decided to write our own instructions to make bread and then test them out! We had great fun kneading the dough and we practised using our super strong muscles! I think …

A Sunny Wiggery Wood Visit!

It was lovely and sunny at the woods today and we enjoyed running and hiding among the bluebells. We also made some ‘leaf burgers’ by sawing wood and placing a leaf in between them! We decorated them with Terry’s pens and tied them with elastic bands. Here are some photographs of what we got up …

Bluebells in the Woods

The woods looked beautiful today covered in bluebells and the children enjoyed looking at them and smelling them as they explored. We also had some sticky postcards which we filled with different leaves, sticks, feathers and flowers that we could find. The children demonstrated great care today and they were careful not to stand on …

Easter in Hedgehog Class

Easter at Wiggery Wood

We had great fun at Wiggery Wood last week! The Easter bunny had hidden lots of numbers around the woods for us to find. When we found them all they made a special message which led us to underneath the wheelbarrow. Under the wheelbarrow we found some chocolate eggs for us to share! We also …

We …

Signs of Spring at Wiggery Wood

We saw the bluebells starting to grow at Wiggery Woods last week. We had to be really careful where we walked so that we didn’t step on any and we can’t wait to see them as they start to flower! We enjoyed exploring the woods and making use of the rope swings and ladders. Terry …
