Pumpkin Patch

I would like to say a huge thank you to all of the families who turned up at the pumpkin patch ready for the weigh in - I'm so sorry about the mix up with the times (Next year I will double check what I've been told!). Our pumpkin was not the biggest but that doesn't matter because we had loads of fun growing it and will have loads of fun next week eating pumpkins! Well done my pumpkin growing Hedgehogs.Some Reception children at the pumpkin patch

Hedgehog Visit!

Some very kind members of our community agreed to bring their beautiful hedgehogs in to meet our little Hedgehogs. The children sat very quietly and listened very respectfully as their owners explained how to care for hedgehogs and then showed all of the children one up close. The children got to see the live meal worms that they love to eat and some of the quills that they shed. They got to ask lots of questions about the hedgehogs - all showing a real interest in these lovely creatures. The whole class would like to say a massive thankyou to the kind ladies who took the time to come into school to do this.A real hedgehog being shown to the Reception children


Today, to finish our week long topic based around the story of The Little Red Hen, we have made some bread. The children worked in teams to follow a recipe that involved adding flour, yeast, oil, salt and water and then giving it a really good knead - this was the bit that they loved the most and happily spent 20 minutes kneading their dough!! We watched as the dough slowly rose and then baked it in the oven.Bread dough made by the Reception class Once cooled the children all enjoyed eating their lovely bread! Well done Hedgehogs!

Tractor Visit

Reception learning about tractorsToday Farmer Miller, from our school meal provider Willoughby Foods, bought a tractor into school for Reception to explore. They loved learning about how to stay safe near tractors and the sorts of jobs that tractors can do. They spent lots of time looking for 2D shapes around the tractor and also got to sit inside it! What an exciting morning.Reception learning about tractors

Apple Crumble

They chopped the apples, coated them in sugar, added crumble topping and waited patiently for them to bake. The children learned so many safety skills doing this as well as lots of life skills - developing their knowledge of where their food comes from, using sharp knives, feeding themselves...well doneapples being chopped by reception children Hedgehogs
