What an exciting week it has been! The highlight of our week was the visit from Ark Farm! Year 2 enjoyed seeing and petting all the different animals… especially the sleepy hedgehog!
We thoroughly enjoyed this farm experience and we are looking forward to doing our big English write! Year 2 are basing their narrative write on The Hodgeheg by Dick King Smith.
Max is a hedgehog who lives with his family in a nice little home, but it’s on the wrong side of the road from the Park where there’s a beautiful lily pond and plenty of juicy slugs, worms and snails!
The busy road is dangerous but Max is determined to make his way across. If humans can do it, why can’t hedgehogs?
His first attempt ends in a nasty bump on the head and, when Max tries to speak, he realises his words are all mixed up. He is no longer a hedgehog but a hodge-heg!
Everyone delighted in meeting the hodgeheg… I mean the hedgehog …and Year 2 came up with lots of wonderful adjectives to describe the hedgehog!
In Art, we made our own hedgehogs out of clay. We sculpted the bodies of our hedgehogs and we used clay slip to attach the eyes, legs and spikes.
