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.

Our Class Blog


We are busy learning about growth in Hedgehog class. The children have planted various seeds and bulbs. We are looking forward to seeing our summer flowers beginning to bloom and watch our courgettes, pumpkins, tomatoes and beans grow. Unfortunately, our peas have been eaten by some pesky slugs!


We have also put our eggs in the incubator, we can't wait to meet our new arrivals!


Alongside learning about growth, the Nursery children have been enjoying learning about environmental sounds, developing their listening ears and learning to discriminate between sounds. They enjoy wearing their extra big listening ears! Reception have worked very hard learning their phonics, and are able to use their phonic skills to read and write.


We learn by practical, hands on activities in Hedgehog class and enjoy active learning. We are developing our counting and number recognition skills by taking part in activities such as counting objects, searching for numbers in the sand and matching numbers to objects. 


Being creative is something we all enjoy, from building models, painting a picture or playing in the role play area. There have been some fantastic models made using the large wooden bricks and beautiful paintings and drawings created.


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.

Supporting at Home


Please help support your child at home by using your child's phonic pack and reading regularly at home. Your support at home is crucial in developing your child as a confident and enthusiastic learner. Please read your child's reading book regularly at home and comment in their yellow reading record book. Remember, reading to your child is just as important as them reading to you.
