In English this week we have been reading 'Pattan's Pumpkin' by Chitra Soundar. In the story Kanni songs a lullaby to the animals to soothe them. We enjoyed writing and performing our own lullaby.

A lullaby by Hedgehogs.Mp3

Pumpkin, pumpkin, you’re a star,
Sleepy babies, it’s ok,
You can have a lovely rest,
Pumpkin will keep us all safe,
Pumpkin, pumpkin you’re the best.
Take us home where we belong.





This week, as part of Black History Month, Hedgehogs class have been learning about Bessie Coleman. We loved finding out about her amazing life. Bessie faced many challenges and showed resilience, by never giving up and standing up for her beliefs. We hope that you enjoy reading and listening to our poem.
