Welcome to our Hedgehogs class page. The children have made a fantastic and smooth transition into school from pre-school and we are very proud and impressed with the progress the children have made already in starting their phonics and reading journey and all other areas of our early years curriculum.

In our Autumn 1 half term, we have been learning about...
All about ourselves and our new friends, The Very Hungry Caterpillar and the autumn season. The children created some amazing Hungry Caterpillar clay models and paper chain models as well as some brilliant spiky hedgehogs using salt dough. The children have painted and used real leaves collected on our autumn walk to create authentic looking autumn tree artwork. We have also talked about foods that are healthy and unhealthy.


In phonics the children have begun to learn their letter sounds and apply these to segment and blend short words and captions.


For mathematics, the children have been learning how to count physical objects to 10 or 20 as well as recognise, order and count out loud. They have also been learning how to write digits 0-9 and about basic 2d shape names and properties such as sides and corners.

We have been learning the creation story in R.E. and have practised it using actions and the children know the story really well now!
