Y1- Hedgehog Class

A huge, warm welcome back to all the children in Year 1.

We can't quite believe this our last term together in the Hedgehog Class.


With Miss Samson, Miss Baxter and Miss Bourne.



Let's make this final term in Year 1 the best!

Filled with loads of learning, laughter, smiles and fun!!!

This will be on Tuesday of each week.

Just a reminder …...

The PE kit is as follows:


  • Plain white t-shirt, preferably without any logos. This doesn’t include football tops.
  • Black/navy shorts.
  • Trainers or plimsolls
  • Hair should be tied back and earrings should be removed whenever possible. If ears are newly-pierced, then they may be taped up for PE lessons. Necklaces and watches should be removed.


During the winter children may wear the following:


  • Black or dark blue tracksuit bottoms (these should be plain). Sport leggings are also allowed but these must be plain dark blue or black.
  • Their school jumper.


Please remember on these days children come dressed in either their PE kit or appropriate Forest school clothes for the whole day.


 Our class practice hedgehog.

Each child has been given a laminated hedgehog picture which is taken home daily and brought back in each day. On this hedgehog are small steps of learning that, with support from home, the children can become more confident with and this will aid them in progressing during the learning at school.

Thanks for your ongoing support.



Reading is an essential part of each day at school and the children in the Hedgehog class love to share and read a range of books.


Please could reading books come into school everyday, even if the children haven't read, as we like to share their books at any given chance.


As the children's book are becoming longer and more detailed we will be changing books on Monday's and Thursday's. This gives the children a 3 day cycle. As well as just reading the books, children can retell the story, answer the questions given at the back of the books or just reread the stories to be come more fluent and accurate with the words.  


Remember each time your child reads, even if it is just a page, please sign in their reading record book so they can be given their sticker and work towards each reading bug.


As we now are part of the Reading Eggs program and your child completes some reading tasks on it, please record that into their reading record book as this is another way of earning stickers for the class reading chart and individual reading bugs.
