Welcome to Hedgehogs Class!


Hedgehog class is taught by Mrs Wilby and Mrs Wildey. Learning in Hedgehog class is supported by Mrs Saxby and Miss Wilson. 



Our brains develop fast in Hedgehog class, as we learn to read and write and work with numbers and shapes. We are learning how to be good friends, share and be confident, resilient learners. We enjoy being creative and finding out about the world around us.

Hardwicke Farm Visit.

As part of our topic on 'Changes' we visited The Herwicke Farm.  We were ever so lucky as the weather stayed sunny for us and we were able to enjoy being out in the great outdoors.  We played some fabulous games helping us to learn about the markings on sheep and met a very cute lamb named Bob, who was very obliging and allowed us all to pet him.

The visit followed on from our work in the classroom where we have been observing the changes in our caterpillars and tadpoles.  

Forest School -April 2023

We have been ever so busy at the moment searching for signs of spring and exploring change as we compare the area to how it looked just a few weeks ago.  The blossom on the trees around the field area is beautiful and once back in the classroom we made some finger print trees inspired by the colours in nature.  We have also been using our muscles to dig and prepare the ground for our wildflower area and look forward to watching them as they begin to grow.

Settling in


We have all been learning to settle into school life in Hedgehog class, for some this is our first experience of big school but we are all doing fantastic, learning new routines and how to be a good friend.


We love to learn and explore new ideas and experiences. In the classroom we have lots of resources to help us learn through play. We have 'Busy Time', where we are able to follow our own interests and guide our own learning. This is a great opportunity to showcase our talents, drawing, building, creating and many more!


We are excited to learn more about the world around us, music, literacy and mathematics, in lots of different ways.


Each week we enjoy taking part in Action Ants, learning how to move and travel in different ways, and using a range of equipment, to build our muscles. Our weekly Forest School sessions offer lots of experiences of the world around us.



Weekly Routines


Hedgehog class have Forest School on a Tuesday and take part in Action Ants on a Thursday. PE kits, waterproofs and wellies stay in school.
