Our theme at this time is Hibernation and Hedgehogs.
We have been listening to songs, poems and stories all about hedgehogs. For Art we made our own little creatures.
Teacher demonstrated how to turn a lump of clay into a hedgehog.
Firstly we had to soften the clay and then roll and rub it into a hedgehog shape. We noticed how cold and squashy the clay felt.
Next we snapped dried spaghetti and stuck the small pieces into the clay to represent the spines.
We finished off by choosing and adding different coloured eyes.
We all helped to clean the tables after our work.
Welcome to Blasket!
Our teacher is Mrs Majella Harris.
