Hedgehogs have had a busy week looking at skeletons. They have made some x ray pictures of their arm and hand, found out where all the bones go with a jigsaw puzzle and heard some 'Funny Bones' stories. They have also sequenced the story of Noah's Ark and practised their cutting skills. They have all been fantastic at changing for P.E. and are now much more independent.
News 14th September
Hedgehogs have had a great week this week. All the children have been introduced to the letters ' s a t i m' and have been busy writing them in sand. They have also been talking about their families and then made paper dolls to represent them. In numeracy Hedgehogs have been looking at numbers to 10 and recognising the numeral. The children listened to the story of Noah's Ark and next week will be doing some artwork linked to the story.
The children have all settled in well and have been busy practising writing their names. They have had great fun exploring the outside area and we have been lucky with the lovely weather. On Thursday afternoon, they all got changed for PE and then went outside to investigate different ways of moving. The children have shared their scrapbooks with each other and talked about their holidays. Thank you for all your support with the scrapbooks, they are great and a lovely memento for you to keep.
Welcome to the Hedgehogs class page
In Hedgehog class we teach Reception, which covers Foundation Stage. The class is taught by Mrs Hopewell, who is supported by Mrs Hassell. In addition, Mrs Cutmore provides support Monday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons.
P.E is every Thursday.
The children also have library time on Thursday afternoons.
We are lucky to have a large outdoor learning environment with a new covered area and offer continuous provision (unrestricted outdoor access to the early years play area).
We have a class mascot called Harriet the Hedgehog. Each weekend she visits one of us and we share our adventures with the class each week.
This half-term's topic
Our current topic is ‘Ourselves' we will be looking at what makes each of us special. The children will discuss their different interests and talents and will learn more about their likes and dislikes and learn about their own families.
We really encourage children to read at home each evening to parents, this really helps improve fluency and confidence.
What we've been up to
Welcome back to a brand new school year! Hedgehog class will be having lots of fun over the next few weeks settling into school life and starting our topic 'Ourselves.'
