Hedgehogs Blog 2.12.16


We are authors! We have been writing our own version of the Three Billy Goats Gruff using the story maps we made last week. It was really fun.


We learnt about toys from around the world.

“The Russian toy was the wooden dolls, they opened up and there was more inside the big ones.” Amber


We found out about worry dolls from South America.

“Children put them behind their pillows and they take away all their worries.” Thomas


Koala bears come from Australia. picture1

“They sing songs and they are cuddly.” Finley

“They used to be made from kangaroo fur.” Amelia


Christmas has arrived!


We have been making decorations for Christmas and the Year Three children came to help us. We have been making snowflakes, marshmallow flowers, gingerbread men and gingerbread houses, sugar plum fairies, nutcrackers and stockings!

We have been eating our first chocolates from our advent calendars and we have been sharing stories about our elves at home.


Next week we are going to get ready for our performance called The Nutcracker.
