Welcome to Hedgehog Class
Hedgehog Class is our Year Two class, where Mrs Vipond is our teacher. Our class page will be updated regularly to share our learning with you; I hope you enjoy it.
Our class topic web and maths medium term plan are located on the class learning page; please use the Hedgehog Learning page link below. Also on the learning page are reading and spelling lists and a yearly overview.
A very Happy New Year to everyone. We are building on our knowledge of London but this time with a history theme and a specific focus on The Great Fire of London. Please have a look at the learning page where the topic web will give you an overview of the cross curricular links.
I am so sorry we couldn't get all your lovely model houses into school but thank you for sending in pictures from home. I will be printing them out and using the pictures in our art lessons, so look out for some photos.
The following books are some additional books if you wish to do any further topic-related reading:
Toby and The Great Fire of London by Margaret Nash
The Baker’s Boy and the Great Fire of London by Tom Bradman
The Great Fire Dogs by Megan Rix
In term 2 we will be building on some of the learning we covered in Year1, as we 'Explore London'! With a geography focus, we will look at the famous landmarks of London, learn how to navigate and work together to plan our own virtual tour. I hope we don't get lost!
This term our our topic has been 'exploring London' and we linked up with a Year 2 class in London. We learned that NW in a London post code means North West London and we were able to locate their school in relation to the famous landmarks.
We also received letters from the class and wrote a letter back; making sure we answered some of their questions and gave some facts about our local area. It was really lovely to receive the letters so I do hope they like our ones.
We have also seen there are lots of places called London around the world - my favourite has to be the London on Kiribati or Christmas Island!
The following books are a lovely mixture of fiction, fact and poetry and fun! Please have a read if you wish to do any further topic-related reading.
A Day in London by Roderick Hunt
All Aboard the London Bus by Patricia Toht
The Queen's Hat by Steve Antony
Paddington (at St Paul's, at The Tower and many more) by Michael Bond
