Welcome to Hedgehogs! Our topic for this Autumn term is ‘Marvellous Me’. During this topic we will be learning about each other. We will be sharing lots of exciting things about our families, homes, toys and friends. The children will be learning about their bodies, healthy eating, the senses and growing up.
Each week, on a Friday, a pupil from our class will bring home the marvellous me box. This is a special box to fill with special things about them. The children will then share this with their class on the Monday morning.
We will also be using a key text each half term to base our learning around. This first half term we will be reading The Bog Baby by Jeanne Willis and Gwen Millward.
It’s a huge step starting school, that’s why we are always here for any support and guidance. Don’t hesitate to ask.
Mrs.Cartwright and Miss.Harrold.
During this first term, PE will be on Wednesday mornings. (Also Monday afternoons weather permitting) Mr.McDonnell will be teaching the children lots of skills which will support their gross motor development. Please make sure PE kits are in school with your child’s name on. Thank you
Home Learning is so important for the children to make good progress. During the first half term the children will start learning their sounds (phonemes). We will send one phoneme home each day for them to practise reading and writing at home.
Forest school will be on a Tuesday afternoon. Please send children into school wearing old clothes on that day. Please also send in some wellies for us to keep in school. Starts Tuesday 17th September.
Children will be starting on reading books once they have learnt to sound and blend simple words. These will be changed on a Monday and Friday.
Every Thursday morning, Hedgehogs class will be open for the first half an hour for parents to come and see what we get up to. Just come on in with your child at the start of the day! Starts Thursday 26th September.
You will find these in the children’s book bags and will be topped up regularly. The stars are for you to write any proud moments you have at home with the children. We will share these at school.
