Hedgehogs (Rec/Yr1)

Hello and welcome to Hedgehogs' class!  We are a reception and Year 1 class, and Miss Booth is class our teacher.  We are also very lucky to have Mrs Gill to support us with our phonics and English work.  

Our classroom has lots of areas for us to explore, play and learn, and these are changed regularly based on our topics and interests.  We are proud of the work that we do, and our 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, and use our imagination.  Our outdoor space is now even more exciting, as we have a new sandpit, water run, music station, book nook, huge balance scales, den-making equipment and so much more! 

































































Our Autumn topics are...

Our School Locality & Africa - Going on Safari.

(Please see Topic Plan below)


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


This term, PE is on a Monday and a Wednesday.  Miss Booth would like us to wear our PE kits in school on these days.   It is important that we have our names in our PE kits and our school uniform.  




Home Learning


Year 1-  Weekly maths homework

Reception / Year 1 - Daily phonics to reinforce our ELS Phonics work.


Reading Raffle -  Our 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 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.


Thank you for visiting our class page.
