Welcome to Term 1! I am sure this will be an exciting and successful term for Hedgehog Class. Please see our first newsletter below for useful information.

3. Good Health and Wellbeing
The children enjoyed (and felt a little queasy) replicating food traveling through our digestive system. See our experiment write-up and photos below.
Mrs. Brierley covered her nose when she came to watch our experiment because the hall smelt so bad!
We had visitors from Nepal talk to us about their country and show us the traditional dancing and clothes. We were able to dress up in traditional attire, play instruments and join in with the dancing.
We had Warburtons (the bread company) come to visit our school and they spoke to us about healthy living. We were all dressed up in aprons and hair nets (even Miss Chapman, Mrs Tolley and Mrs West) to make healthy sandwiches. We loved it!
There was hardly any waste left over, we did a great job!
In lower KS2, children came to take part in a mindfulness activity where we practiced breathing techniques and listened to relaxing spa music.
We celebrated the end of Term 1 by having fun in PE with the parachute!

Daci is learning really well. I love the fact that the children are pushed to their full potential.
It was very nice to be able to view Oliver’s work and see how he is progressing. Thank you for the opportunity.
“My child really enjoyed this Play and Stay and so did I as a parent. Nothing to improve – really pleased!”

Thanks for inviting me to do a story session with your school. I found the whole experience very rewarding as both children, and teachers were open to engage with me, and participated in listening to the stories, dressing up, singing and dancing.

“The behaviour of the Year 5 children was a credit to the school when we were out on the road.”
