School’s out for summer! ☀️

Well Hedgehogs, our school year has come to an end! What a strange year it has been! I have loved speaking to you all over the last four months and finding out what you have been up to whilst at home. I have also been able to see some of you more recently which has been fantastic!

We have enjoyed the time we have spent together so much and I can’t believe the year has come to an end already. We hope you have a brilliant summer holidays and hope you can enjoy our new “normal” with your family.

We’re all working hard to get things ready for next year and I will see you in September as we start our exciting journey in our new building!

Stay safe and have fun!

Lots of love,

Rhian, Nicki, Sue and Catherine 💙

Let’s Make Some Music 🎵

Hello Hedgehogs! I hope you have all had a lovely week! It has been lovely to hear what you have all been up to this week whilst at home and at school! It is fantastic to hear how much progress you are all making whilst at home.

Mason has been busy drawing and colouring the letters from the alphabet! He has taken his time to carefully colour them in and even drew some pictures to go next to each letter which is brilliant! He then laid them out on the table and went through each one, listen to that loud clear voice! Well done Mason! 😁

The weather this week has been very up and down so why not try and cheer ourselves up with some music time? You could have a go at ,along your own musical instruments like the ones in the pictures below and then you could play them along to your favourite song! In Hedgehog class we loved dancing and singing to Elephants Have Wrinkles, especially when they all fall down at the end!
Don’t forget Bev our music teacher has put some of our favourite songs onto the home learning website and Charanga so please make use of this. She updates this every week so go and take a look ☺️ I’ve put the details below again just in case you have forgotten.

We are so close to the end of term now and what a very strange term this has been! All the staff in Hedgehog class send their love and can’t wait to get back to “normal” again soon. 💙

Feeling Hot Hot Hot 🥵

Hello Hedgehogs!

I hope you are all keeping well and enjoying this beautiful sunshine!
It has been lovely to see some of your faces at school this week and I have loved speaking to your parents each week to find out what you’ve been up to!

With this hot weather why not try and cool down with some water and ice activities? Have a look at some of the ideas below. 💦

We are missing you all lots and can’t wait until we can see each other again 💙

Dance in the rain ☔️ 🌧

Hello Hedgehogs!

What on earth has happened to our lovely weather? As the rain looks like it’s set to stay for a few more days now why not embrace the rain. Get wrapped up and put your rain coats and wellies on and go out exploring! I wonder how many muddy puddles you can find to jump in – they’re just impossible to resist! Have a look at some of the pictures below for ideas, whether you’re inside or outside, there’s lots to learn. If you’re a little chilly when you get back indoors how about a lovely warm drink and a biscuit 🍪 to help you get all cosy. If you’re not keen on going out in the rain have a look for a rainbow 🌈 from your windows, there’s been a little bit of sunshine between the showers so you might get lucky! What colours can you see? Can you count them?

We have loved seeing and hearing about what you have all been up to whilst you’ve been staying safe at home with your families. Annie has had a fantastic time enjoying the sun with her family before the rain came! She has filled some balloons with water and taped powerpuff girls faces to them – brilliant Annie!

Take care Hedgehogs and I will see you very soon! 🦔💙

Home Learning 🏠 🎨

Hello Hedgehogs! Here we are again! You are all coping so well with being at home during these uncertain times and we are so proud of you! 👍 It has been lovely to chat to your mummies and daddies each week to find out what you have been up to and I know it is getting difficult now to keep busy. Keep going, you’re doing a fantastic job and we hope to be welcoming you back soon – even if things will be a little different! Take a look below at what some of your friends have been up to, we would love to see your pictures so feel free to send them over when you have a spare minute.

I dropped some work packs round to some your houses the other week and it was so lovely to see your faces after so long! If you would like any more ideas on how you can keep busy whilst at home take a look at some of the ideas below 💡.

Take care Hedgehogs and families! We miss you so much and can’t wait until we can welcome you back ☺️💙

Fun in the garden!

Hello again Hedgehogs!

It was so lovely to see some of you last week whilst dropping your work packs! I am also enjoying seeing pictures of what you have all been up to!

As we are due some nice weather over the next few days why not make the most of getting in the garden and exploring some ice play. You could search for flowers in the garden and freeze them in bowls or ice cube trays. Or you could put a few drops of food colouring in your water before freezing and explore the different colours you can make. Have a look at some of the ideas below for inspiration if you need it!

Stay safe everyone and hopefully we can see each other soon 🤞💙

We can still learn from home 🏡

Happy Friday Hedgehogs!

I hope you have all had a lovely week at home, the weather is meant to be getting sunnier next week so hopefully you can all make the most of the nice weather! ☀️

It has been so lovely to speak to you all this week and hear what you have been up, one of our hedgehog friends even celebrated a birthday this week!

I have put some pictures of some activities that you might like to do at home over the next week or two so feel free to take a look and see what you fancy! Don’t forget to make the most of Charanga and the music Bev has put on there for you all!

Stay safe everyone!

Busy Hedgehogs 🦔

We have loved seeing pictures of all the things you have been up to over the last few weeks. Have a look at what some of your friends and adults have been up to!

Stay safe everyone 💙

Playtime!

Hello everyone!

I know that as the weeks go on we are struggling to keep ourselves busy and we don’t really fancy doing any “school work” and that is absolutely fine and completely understandable! This is a very challenging time and the most important thing is that we are happy and safe! So don’t worry too much, get playing with your brothers, sisters, mums and dads building dens inside and outside, playing outside on your trampolines, bikes and scooters and splash about in your paddling pools! We are always learning and communicating with each other while we are playing together.

I have attached a poster below that you might find useful with regards to how many times you are able to leave the house for exercise and information on travelling. I have also posted the details of our Speech and Language Therapists should you need to contact them ☺️

Stay safe everyone 💙

VE Day 🇬🇧

On Friday 8th May we will be celebrating VE Day and remembering that special day during the Second World War 75 years ago!

If we were at school now we’d be busy baking cakes, making bunting and flags and getting dressed up in our best party clothes ready to have a party with our friends. During these strange times why not join in with the virtual VE Day celebrations and join the nation in having a cake 🧁 or sandwich 🥪 in your garden on Friday afternoon?

You could get crafty making bunting and flags, get messy with paint, get cooking in the kitchen making cakes and sandwiches or explore the different sensory aspects of coloured rice, ice or shaving foam. Decorate your house or garden in red, white and blue, get dressed up and celebrate in style! Take a look at some ideas 💡 below.

Stay safe, and enjoy! 👍
