I play, I learn, I belong


 Welcome to Hedgehog Class! 


We have had a very exciting week in Hedgehog class. We have begun our new topic of People Who Help Us and as it is Bonfire night this week we decided to start with Firefighters and fire safety.   

On Wednesday we were visted by Fireman Dave who told us all about his job. He talked to us about his uniform, different fire extinguishers and what to do if we saw a fire. We enjoyed shouting FIRE! at the top of our voices to get an adults attention and we also loved having a go at ringing the fire bell that Fireman Dave bought in with him. Fireman Dave's motto is "Safety First" and he talked to us about how important it is to keep a sparkler at arms length and to never go back to a firework that has been lit. After his visit, we designed our own fire safety posters and wrote thank you letters to him. We really enjoyed his visit.


In maths this week we have been learning about circles and triangles. We learnt about an artist called Kandinsky and created our own art work inspired by him. We use Purple Mash and gummed circles and paper plates. 


We have continued learning our different sounds in phonics. so far we have learnt: s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d, g, o, c, k, ck, e, r, b, h, f, l, ff, ss, ll, j

We have been using these sounds to blend simple words such as:

sat, pin, tap, sit

We are now beginning to blend these sounds to read words with more confidence. Keep practicing this at home. 

The tricky words we have learnt so far are:

is, I, the, as, pull, put, full


Keep up the great work Hedgehog class!
