Welcome to Hedgehog Class 

Hedgehog Class 2023-2024

Miss Faulkner, Mrs Gough, Mrs Cutler and Mrs Gibbs

Wow! One of our friends in Hedgehogs class brought in an intact corn snake skin shed for us to look at today! Although we didn’t touch it, we loved seeing the amazing pattern of its scales and we could even see where its eyes and mouth would have been! 🐍

Hedgehogs Class had a wonderful time in the meadow! We explored our old Christmas tree, whether objects sink or float, and we found some icy puddles!

Year 1 Art Project

Year 1 have been looking at the famous ‘Starry Night’ painting by Vincent Van Gogh in
their Art learning. The children started by learning about the primary colours and then
mixing their own secondary colours in preparation for painting their own ‘Starry Night’
paintings. The children explored different lines and how to create effects using line.
The children have created some beautiful artwork.

Christmas party time!

Squirrels: Toby and Asia

Badgers: Kai and Adwoa

Hedgehogs: Tyler and April

Otters: Stefan and Martha

Foxes: Jaxon and Sienna

Your Time to Shine Class Winners

Hedgehogs class were brilliant representatives of Fairfield on their visit to Havant library today. We had a wonderful time reading stories and going on a book character scavenger hunt! On the way back to school, we even got a chance to look at the Remembrance display we contributed to! What a fab afternoon 🦔📚 9th November 2023

Our Year 1 Remembrance display is now displayed in the Meridian Centre on the ground floor near the polar bear! We hope you will pop along to see the display - 1st November 2023

Year 1 have been reading 'Shark in the Park' by Nick Sharratt. Today the children have visited the park to see what they could see, just like the character in the story. The children spotted lots of things so they are ready to start writing their postcards. 11th October 2023

Hedgehogs had a wonderful teddy bears picnic today to celebrate earning another 15 golden merits! We had apples, biscuits, squash and a bit of a boogie to some party tunes, too! 🐻🍎🍪 9th October 2023

Hedgehogs had the best time celebrating their 15 golden merits with a treat time on Friday afternoon! We enjoyed biscuits, sweets and a Wallace and Gromit film - what fun! 🦔🤍 - Friday 22nd September 2023

Hedgehogs Class loved making potions to complete their Maths unit about capacity! We mixed Mermaid Tears, Dragon Blood, Goblin Snot, Ogre Shavings and Wishes, and tested our knowledge along the way! 7th July 2023

Fieldwork Fortnight! The Year 1 children have been working together to problem solve! They have been using their eyes very carefully to observe the Human and Physical Geographical features around our school and have been detectives to locate the original object in the magnified photograph. They have found a letter by each object and worked together to unscramble the word! 5th July 2023

Hedgehogs had a fabulous time in the meadow this afternoon. It is currently "Fieldwork Fortnight", so today we scrubbed up on our maps knowledge and had a go at drawing and making maps of the meadow. 26th June 2023

Hedgehogs Class had THE best time at Staunton Farm today! When we hopped off the mini bus we fed goats, sheep, alpacas, rabbits, guinea pigs and pigs, and we were even allowed to pick lime leaves to feed some of the animals! We learnt about how ferrets and pigs both have super sharp teeth. Simba the ferret had rough fur which surprised us. Did you know that pigs have to have suncream on their ears on a hot day, and because they can't sweat they have to roll in mud to cool down?! We got to compare some eggs, one laid by a turkey and one laid by a rhea. The rhea egg was really big and hard and the turkey egg was small and spotty. We met a turkey called Dwayne who was huge, and he was 4 years old. We held some white sheep wool and some brown alpaca wool. We noticed that the alpaca wool was far softer. At lunchtime we enjoyed sitting in the shade and even had time for a little play! The maze was tricky, however it was easier than we expected it to be. All in all we had a really fun day and some of us have even said we wish we could go to the farm every day! 16th June 2023

What a wonderful last meadow session for Hedgehogs this half term! From flowers to slugs and everything in between, we had a great time in the sunshine 🌞 - 22nd May 2023
