Hedgehogs become authors! We have been reading the book 'We all went on Safari' by Laurie Krebs. We idenitified the pattern of the language used by the author and we also learnt to count to ten in Swahili. We were challenged to write our own version of the story for the Reception children who are learning to count. We chose our own animals and actions to write about, as well as illustrating our work with colourful pictures and designing our own front covers. Look how proud we felt about our work!
Drama - telling the story of Handa's Surprise
Tasting Handa's Fruit - Hedgehogs enjoyed trying the fruit from the story Handa's Suprise and had to use their senses to describe how it tasted, smelt and looked.
Trip to Colchester Zoo - As part of our Safari topic, we visited Colchester Zoo. We had the opportunity to meet and feed the giraffes and elephants, as well as observe other the African animals we have been learning about. Later we had a teaching session with Lee, who shared lots of artefacts with us and we explored their origins and uses. We also had lots of fun visiting the other animals too!
