 Welcome to Hedgehog Class! 

In literacy, we used the story 'Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs'. We practised retelling the story using the story language first, then, next. The children then wrote sentences about the story. The children are really impressing us with how many sounds they are now hearing when writing. Well done Hedgehogs! Please continue to practise letter formation at home. 





In maths this week we explored numbers to 5 using a tens frame. The children practised placing a certain number of counters on a tens frame and we talked about the different ways of making the number using our fingers. E.g. 0 and 5, 2 and 3, 4 and 1 go together to make 5. 



On Friday it was Dads and Grandads reading afternoon. We were visited by 7 Dads and Grandads and the children really enjoyed it. Thank you to those who came. 



Our class mascot Geoff the Giraffe is very excited about going on different adventures with children throughout the year! Last week he visited Summer-Lee and this week he is visiting Arav. 


Key Words the children will have to learn throughout the Reception year.
