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 to support our class and Mrs Gill helps us with our phonics and joins us on a Monday, Tuesday and Thursday afternoon.
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 make up games to play. Our teachers and helpers have an exciting plan to make this area even better! We will keep you up to date and try to put lots of photographs on for you to see.
Our Autumn Topic is 'The Great Fire of London'
(Please see our Topic Web below)
This term, PE is on a Tuesday and Wednesday. 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.
Lowther Endowed School believes that home learning is an essential part of all children’s' education. It gives an opportunity to extend and consolidate work done in class; it encourages the production of creative, reflective, and investigative work independent of the teacher; it also develops skills in personal organisation and a sense of responsibility.

Well what a day! In fact, what a week! To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Tiger Who Came to Tea’ by Judith Kerr, this popular story has been our Literacy focus.
The children have been busy doing lots of different activities and this week they have been writing Tea Party invitations for the Tiger. Unfortunately, the greedy Tiger could not wait for us and helped himself to the food! Luckily he left some evidence, not just a mess... but his footprints! We could not believe it! However, we did play some party games and managed to have some leftover food, but we were all very cross!! So this afternoon, we spontaneously postponed our Art lesson and decided to look for some more clues. Squirrels class joined us. With their help, we spotted lots of clues in the wildlife area! (I have to say, the amount of excitement, creativity and discussion was amazing!) At the end of the day, we received a phone from an extremely cross employee at the Zoo. She explained that earlier today her Tiger was sick and tried to blame us! When she found out it was not our fault but actually the greedy Tiger, she apologised. The lady added that Tiger was back safe and was pleased to say that he was starting to feel a lot better!
