Hedgehogs

Hedgehogs’ Trip to Yorkshire Wildlife Park
We had a fabulous day today, looking at animals and thinking about their habitats in our geography/science trip.
After a week of almost constant rain, we were very lucky with the weather.  We had a 10 minute shower, but nothing that made us head indoors.
We saw meerkats being fed, had wallabies bouncing around our feet and watched male lions prowling and growling whilst a lioness chewed meat. We laughed at baboons chasing and gasped as a polar bear leapt into the water straight in front of us!
We were able to eat our picnic outside under a canopy, whilst birds hopped around searching for crumbs.
We talked about carnivores and herbivores, homes and habitats and even which animals would like to eat us!
After a quick stop at the gift shop, we returned to school tired but happy. Look out for our follow up work in assembly!

A huge thank you to those children who collected money to subsidise our class trip by obtaining sponsors for our recent class sponsored event and buying cakes at our cake sale.

Your contributions helped raise us £226, which almost covers the whole cost of our trip to Yorkshire Wildlife Park on the 13th June.

 

Thank you for your continued support.

Mrs Grasby and Mrs Dixon

Our class took part in the recent Cluster Infant Agility sports session. We had lots of fun and we also enjoyed travelling on the coach to the big school. 

 

Hedgehogs Class Trip to Clumber Park

 

Hedgehogs had a great morning and we managed to fit in a lot of practical science!

Despite the terrible weather forecast, we were lucky and never got any rain - we will have to use the rain gauges another day!

Have a look at what we did!

 

First we looked for signs of winter - grey clouds, our warm clothes, mud and puddles.

 

Then we looked at how plants and animals cope. Deciduous and evergreen trees, winter fur and winter plumage, migration and hibernation food and shelter -  we managed to see signs of them all

 

When it became breezy, we quickly made our anemometer again!

 

We enjoyed snack time sitting underneath a tree.

 

Back to science…

We wondered how far it was round this big tree. So we set about finding out. We found it takes 9 children to get right round, but we thought we could be a bit more accurate. So we measured round the tree with string and marked when we got right round with a blue marker pen. Once we got back to school, we measured the string with metre sticks and found that the tree was 4m 11cm round.

 

Next, we went to see the ducks… (can you remember which are male and female?) and then made a home for any hedgehog that had not hibernated yet!

 

Finally, we had an adventurous walk back to the coach!
