Week 12


What an amazing week we have had. The children really are going from strength to strength. This week they have endeared us with some rather brilliant child initiated puppet shows. The children decided after making dinosaur puppets to put on a show, making tickets and practicing the story map from ‘The Little Green Dinosaur’.They gave in their named tickets, assembled on chairs, the show was announced, the children watched in awe and wonder and then applauded to show their appreciation! All from their own ideas and organisation. It was a real proud teacher moment.


We have also been very excited to receive a visit from Mrs Dino who has come to get her babyback. We have been writing her notes and she has written back on giant paper. Today we measured some footprints to see if there was more than one dinosaur and found out they were different sizes. We also drew a picture of Mrs Dino that was 15 metres tall using our metre sticks. The children have loved every minute of it and so have we. We can’t wait for her next visit! 

See our fantastic photos and Video's from this week.

Maths work

Another busy week in hedgehog class....


Week 6 fun!

Many parents have been asking us about our play targets. These are targets that we decide together with the children. They may chose to work on their targets over the week during their plan and play. This helps the children to be self motivated and build on their skills and interests. This is often the next step in their learning for literacy or maths but can be related to any area of the curriculum. When children have worked on their target they might take a photo or show their work to a teacher and they collect a sticker. Once they have 3 stickers their target becomes a proud cloud moment. When they have reached 3 targets they recieve a certificate. This term they recieve one for their first target to encourage them to participate. Please do ask if you have any further questions.

We have had a busy week crammed with some great learning....


Super Duper Us by Hedgehog Class

We composed some sentences together as a class and wrote them in our book. This helped us to learn how to sound out simple words and consolidate concepts of print eg: word, capital letter, space, full stop etc.

Getting stuck in....


This week we have started our topic on Superheros!


In Literacy we have been reading the book "Super Duper Us" and learning about our own superhero qualities and composing sentences aurally. This has helped us in writing sentences using the pronoun I. We are learning how sentences are composed from words and letters and have made our own book about how super we all are!


In Maths we have been learning all about numbers. What the numbers look like and how to write them. We have been looking at a range of number concepts with the numbers one to five, how they compare to other numbers and how to count, partition, estimate and subitize . We will be doing lots more of this over the term. Watch this space for our work....



Week 3 in Pictures


What a busy week we have had in Hedgehog!


The children have so much to learn and they have got stuck in straight away! This week we have been learning about all the different resources to support our learning in the classroom.


We've leant how to participate as a whole class with good listening bodies on the carpet.


We've learnt how to do a small group time activity with our teachers and use our busy books.


We came up with some golden rules to make Hedgehog a happy class and have been practicing using them! The children have been just brilliant at talking about why we follow rules and trying really hard to remember them all!


We love rhyme time and have been learning lots of number songs this week with the guitar and interactive whiteboard. We have also been practicing onset and rhyme and making silly soup.


Here are some more things we have learnt this week...

Our first full week! We have learnt...



Next week we will be starting our new topic "Super Duper You". See our topic web for more information and watch this space for our photos.
