Another great week for the Hedgehogs class this week! With the bank holiday, it was a shorter week once again, but we still did lots of fun learning. Look below to find out what we have done this week!
In our Maths learning this week, we have been learning how to count in our 2s, 5s and 10s. We learnt several patterns to help us count in these different ways.
When counting in 2s from an even number, the numbers end in 0,2,4,6 or 8. (even numbers)
When counting in 5s from 0, the numbers end in either a 5 or a 0.
When counting in 10s from 0, the one stay the same, but the tens digits increase.
Here are some links to help count in these different ways!

Can you also see if you can find the missing numbers on these beanstalks by counting in your 2s, 5s and 10s?
In our English learning, we have been learning a new type of text this week. The children have been learning a poem called "In My Garden". It is a lovely poem that has elements of rhyme, and it is also a senses poem. We have learnt the story by using actions, and creating a Mighty Writer story map, and we have learned about how we can create rhyming words. We learned that for a word to rhyme with another word, it has to have the same end sound, but does not have to be spelled the same. Look below to find the model text, and have a look at our story map that we created together. Can you tell your grown-up all about the poem, just by using the Mighty Writer map?
Science & Art
In our Science this week, we explored our sense of taste. We were blindfolded and we had to taste the foods in front of us, only using our sense of taste and smell. We used words such as bitter, sour, sweet, and salty to describe the different foods. We had honey, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, coffee beans, sundried tomatoes and olives!
We also did some fantastic art this week. Continuing on with our work on 3D sculptures, the children looked at different forms of 'The Tree of Life'. Using this as inspiration, the children created their own versions of the Tree of Life by using paper. We used some of the techniques from last week to help us create the trunk, branches, leaves, and flowers for our tree. The children were so creative and loved the lesson! Their creations were taken home today, but here are some pictures of their sculptures!
