More Hedgehog fun

It's been another lovely week in Hedgehogs class.
We have continued our learning about The Three Little Pigs by working on expressing the story ourselves in plays and productions. You can see videos of some of these on your child's Tapestry account.
We have also been learning a bit about 'Leafman' in our forest school time, and had lots of fun creating our own leafmen following this.
This week we built upon our first phonics sounds by looking at four d,t,i and n, and practicing more blending. Tim was very pleased we could now write his name as well as Sam's.
We've looked at numicon some more and challenged ourselves in games with it, we've expanded our look at pace in music last week to consider different instruments for specific events or actions in a story, we've explored and learning about robot-bees and we've developed our abilities to respond with our bodies to varying musical styles in PE! So much fun in just one week!

We have also been introduced to 'Teach your monster to read', a fun game-based way of consolidating phonics learning and developing listening skills. You can access this at home as well, and continue with the same account and monster they have made in class. To do so, follow this link and then type in their first name (first name, space, and first letter of surname if there are two children with the same name in the class). 

Next week we will be starting the week with a Gruffalo-focused Monday Forest school session and continue thinking about this story for the rest of the fortnight.
