Hedgehogs (Rec/Yr1 and Yr2)

Hello and welcome to Hedgehogs' class!  We are a Reception, Year 1 and 2 class.   We have lots of grown-ups to help and look after us whilst we are having fun learning.  Miss Booth is class our teacher.  We are lucky to have Mrs Pinkerton, Mrs Gill and Miss Daley to help us too. 

Our teachers make sure that our classroom is always inviting and colourful.  We are proud of the work that we do and the teachers display our work for everyone to see!  

We are also very lucky to have such a wonderful outdoor area and we do a lot of our learning outside.  We make the most of it, even when it’s raining because we have a big shelter to keep us dry!   We also have an amazing wildlife area where we make dens, look for mini-beasts, and explore  Our teachers and helpers have an exciting plan to make this area even better!  


Our Autumn Topic is 'Africa - Going on Safari'


(Please see our Topic Planner below)


This term, PE is on a Wednesday and a Friday   So our teacher asks if we could wear our PE kits in school on those days.   Also, our teachers say that it is important that we have our names in our PE kits and school uniform.  We must have our hair tied back and earrings removed.

Our wonderful new starters! Autumn 2021

Phunky Foods - 28th September 2021 - It was wonderful to welcome back Gill from Phunky Foods. Our lesson 'Strive for 5' was all about the importance of healthy eating and eating five portions of fruit and vegetables each day. The children enjoyed making healthy bagels; using fruit and vegetables to create animal faces!

African Food. We tasted 'ugali'. In Usinge, a village is Tanzania, the families grow the maize and make ugali flour to make ugali and beans. Most children eat this in the evening after school.
