Hedgehogs (Rec/Yr1)

Hello and welcome to Hedgehogs' class!  There are 17 of us in our class; 6 year 1's and 10 reception.  Miss Booth is class our teacher and we are lucky to have Mrs Pinkerton and Mrs Gill to support our play and learning. 

Our classroom has different areas for us to play and learn, and these are changed regularly.  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; whatever the weather!  We also have an amazing wildlife area where we make dens, look for mini-beasts, explore, read our favourite books, and use our imagination.  Our outdoor space is now even more exciting, as we have a new sandpit, water-run, music station, writing shed, huge balance scales, den making equipment and so much more! 



Our Spring Topic is 'Superheros and People who help us'

Miss Booth also plans from our interests.  This keeps us busy, engaged, and excited to learn!

We think the children are going to love this topic!



This term, PE is on a Wednesday and Friday.  Miss Booth would like us to wear our PE kits in school on these days.   Also, 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.  





Year 1-  Weekly maths homework


Reading Raffle!!    The children are encouraged to read to an adult at home, as this will embed what they are doing to phonics and ensure that they become more confident readers.  Aiming for 4-5 times a week is important.   Decodable books will be sent home, along with a book for pleasure. 

(Don't forget... if you read 4 times or more, you will receive a raffle ticket on a Friday and will be in with a chance of winning a brand new book!)  We count the comment logs in the reading record.


The children are enjoying our new 'Essential Letter Sounds' phonics scheme.  


Here at Lowther Endowed School, we aim to instill a love of reading from the very beginning of a child's reading journey.


If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.


Thank you for your continued support,


Miss Booth smiley
