Week Beginning 04/01/21

We have been reviewing and practicing addition and subtraction in the first week back to school to build up confidence and to practice different facts to solve calculations.

Here is an example of some Hedgehog English work. They have listen to the story OI Frog! and have written a sentence using because to say why they like or don't like the book. They have drawn the frog following a video on how to draw it by Jim Field the illustrator of the book and their frogs are AWESOME!

Making Shortbread with Mrs Cole's Recipe 07/01/21

They have done some great work and are getting more confident with it. 

They are super proud of themselves! 



Hedgehogs have been looking at rhyming words this week in English. 

Firstly, they matched words that rhyme like puffin and muffin.

Then, they had to think of their own words. 

What do you think rhymes with chairs? or frogs? 

We looked at the photo and wrote a character description. 
We tried to use similes and metaphors and interesting adjectives. What is his appearance? What might he say? 
How might he move? Smell like? What might his voice sound like?


This is what one member of Hedgehogs thought:


A Wizard is a character who rarely changes his clothes.
He speaks in a funny voice and makes things happen."

We have listened to the story OI Dog today and after listening to it, we found some rhyming words. 

Hedgehogs are very good at rhyming words! 

Can you find 5 words that rhyme with cat?


Here's a start: bat

We have also learnt about different landforms.

Watching a video that explains how these are formed and then identifying the correct landforms with a labelling worksheet.

Hedgehogs are turning into budding geographers!

Do you fancy cooking something exciting and healthy? 

Mrs Cole has shared this link with you

Have a look and see what tasty delights you can find.

Happy cooking!

We all love Joe Wicks but what about an alternative? 

Give this a try. Write your name on a piece of paper. You can choose just your first name or all your names. 

Then do the exercises for each letter.

Want a challenge? Then spell your whole address!!!!

Let's get fit with Team Fen!

A student from Hedgehogs has written a poem with the OI books style!

Forest Schools 

Every week at Fen Rivers, we have the opportunity to take part in Forest Schools.

Nicola plans some amazing lessons for us and while we are in lockdown, she didn't want us to miss out!

Have at look at the brilliant stuff she has. I love the matchbox challenge. I wonder how many things you can find to go in yours? 

Cup Cakes....... Yummy!

Hedgehogs have been busy baking cup cakes. 

Mrs Cole gave them the recipe to try at home. 

Not only did they make vanilla ones but also chocolate. They look delicious. 


Today in our English lesson we learn what syllables are. What are these creatures? How many syllables do they have? Here is the work of one of the students in Hedgehogs. Clap your hands as many times as there are syllables in the word.

Charles Darwin

14.01.21 We are learning loads about Charles Darwin in Hedgehogs and we have been questioning What do you like that might make you a scientist? A student in Hedgehogs responded to this question saying “I know lots about dinosaurs and ants” “collect fossils, build an ant farm”
