Primary School

Every Child, Every Chance, Every Day

Term 2

The term started with making witches potions and some fire work art. We thought about Remembrance Day and poppies. The Hedgehogs made a lovely Poppy wreath.
We had a loose parts station which led to some fantastic pictures.
The children turned the role play corner into a cinema, they sold tickets, made signs, numbered seats, and talked about time. They put on wonderful puppet shows which we enjoyed watching. This led to the idea of making our own films! We set up an animation station. The children had a go at stop motion animation with some remarkably interesting outcomes!  
We looked at Autumn leaves and made some leaf art.
The Hedgehogs were introduced to Monty – our Maths Monster who sets challenges!
We had a go at playing the bells!

We made shapes and worked out missing number!

The Hedgehogs were doing so well and kept getting to the shooting star, which led us to think we need another level on our ‘Good to be Gold’ behaviour system. The Hedgehogs decided on a planet which they went on to make using a collage of metallic paper – a great team effort.


Then of course came the preparation for Christmas! We thought about Advent, the Nativity story, writing to Father Christmas, making cards, writing cards, making presents, making wrapping paper, making decorations, decorating the tree, Christmas dinner, Christmas Party, Christmas film afternoon, the Panto, making our own nativity film and of course to finish the term – The Elf Task day. What a busy term! The Hedgehogs worked so hard and made us all proud. Way to go Hedgehogs 😊.
