Hedgehogs Home Learning Thursday 23rd April 2020

Good morning Hedgehogs! I hope you had a lovely Easter and that the Easter Bunny came to visit you.

Everyone in the Johnson house is keeping well and I hope you and your family are too. I’m sure you were happy to hear of the safe arrival of Mrs Farmer’s baby, Flynn. Once we are all back in school I’m sure she will bring Flynn and his big brother Henri to see us all.

It seems a very long time ago since we were all together in class. Hopefully you will enjoy the activities Miss Horton and I will be setting you each day until we are all back to school again.

Mrs Johnson

In Geography and Understanding the World, we would have been looking at the journey of a banana in class. We would have used the Fair Trade activity packs to help us.

Please watch the film about Pablo the Super Banana to start our topic off. You can draw a picture and make notes to show what you found out from the film about where bananas come from.
