Northern Ballet

On Friday, Hedgehogs had a great time working with Keisha from the Northern Ballet. The children worked brilliantly both individually and in groups. 

Golden Mile

Golden Mile 1

Congratulations to the first four children for reaching 5 miles in our golden mile. All the children have been doing lots of running so I am sure it won’t be long before there will be more children receiving certificates. Thanks to Chris, Alex and Max from Premier Education for presenting these certificates. 


Holi 1

This afternoon we have been learning about the Hindu celebration Holi. The classroom looked very colourful as we used artwork to represent how Hindu’s throw coloured powder paint at each other to celebrate good overcoming evil and the start of Spring. 
This half term our topic is ‘Knights, Castles, Dragons.’ We will be learning all about the different parts of a castle, what knights were and how they protected their castles. We will also be learning about the legend ‘George and the Dragon.’ 

What a fantastic time we had at the Making Space dance festival. The children practiced and performed at the Opera house where seats were sold out. They performed brilliantly and were very excited to be involved in the festival. A huge thank you to all the parents who were able to join us. 

Our Spring Term topic is 'Chocolate!'. We are looking forward to learning about how chocolate is made and becoming chocolate bar inventors! Take a look at our class newsletter to find out more! 

This afternoon Hedgehogs have been exploring properties of materials, thinking about how they change shape.
