 Welcome to Hedgehog Class! 

Wow! We cannot believe how quickly the children's first half term at school has gone. We are so proud of everything they have achieved so far and we are looking forward to seeing how their learning journey continues after the holidays. Well done Hedgehogs!


It has been so lovely to hear how enthusiastic the children are about phonics and how much they have enjoyed practising the sounds and actions at home. We have now covered


We are still encouraging the children to use the magic pencils to help form the letters correctly. Support with this can be found at the bottom of this page. 


The children have loved practising reading simple 3 letter words using the sounds we have covered so far.  The children know to point to each sound as they say it and to swipe across as the blend the sounds together to make the word. This is something that could be practised at home too.


In literacy this week we have been using the story 'The Gingerbread Man'. The children have enjoyed joining in with the repeated phrases from the story and have worked extremely hard with their writing too. We are really impressed with how many sounds the children are hearing in the words they want to write. They are able to find the sounds on a phoneme card and can use it to help them with their letter formation. 

On Monday a lady called Lizzie from 'West End In Schools' came to do a dance workshop with the children based on The Gingerbread Man! They really enjoyed it!


Thursday was a very exciting day because the children sang a harvest song to the rest of the school. They performed a song called 'Bean Harvest'. They did extremely well and everyone commented on how confident the children looked. 



Our class mascot Geoff the Giraffe went home with Millie! He is very excited about going on different adventures with children throughout the year! News of the children's adventures with Geoff can be shared in a book which the children get to show the class the following week.  

Well done to Oliver who received the Star Award in assembly this weeksmiley
