This week in Forest School, Hedgehogs class have been learning to tie knots with strawberry laces. Funnily enough, they were very motivated to learn quickly as they could then eat them afterwards! We also have started to look at birds, nests and think about the changing seasons. Thank you for dressing the children up in so many layers. It may not seem too cold when we leave in the morning, but after an hour or so in the shaded woods the cold really does set in. Cold hands and feet are the most common complaints.

In our learning this week we have been learning number bonds to 10 and the children are making good progress on this. We are also nearing the end of our set 1 sounds and will start our set 2 sounds by half term. All children have started learning digraphs (2 letters that make 1 sound). Next week we are looking at more and less (fewer), and subtracting single digit numbers in the context of shopping. In our project learning, we will continue to think about the changes we have had since being a baby and how our parents were younger once. A massive thank you for bringing in photos, baby toys and baby outfits etc . We have enjoyed discussing them and these have been beautiful moments we have shared as a class. Next week we will also begin to look at dinosaurs and Chinese New Year- phew, what a lot to fit in!

Please note, due to timing issues Emily Martin was unable to do gymnastics with Hedgehogs this week. We are hoping we can sort something out soon.

Have a good weekend.
