  HEDGEHOG CLASS

Welcome to Hedgehog Class. We are Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 and we are a currently a class of 18 pupils and two teachers, one of whom works in a TA role but is greatly experienced. We have a lovely classroom environment which has three interconnecting areas, plenty of carpet space and a kitchen! Please take a look at the photographs above.

In Hedgehog Class we firmly believe in child-led learning, which in the Early Years, focuses on open-access to all our resources and the means to learn through play. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum and the 2014 National Curriculum for Years 1 & 2. We take a topic-based approach to lessons, which provides motivation and stimulus to make the vital links that support learning.

Our first was JOURNEY which followed the story of a girl who sets out on an adventure, thanks to her red crayon. In the Christmas term we studied THE TAILOR OF GLOUCESTER, which had a very nice Christmassy feel to it and lots of local links. In the spring we learnt all about RAINFORESTS and went on a trip to The Living Rainforest. This term we are learning all about the seaside.

Alongside our termly topics we have a topic which runs throughout the year; ‘The World Around Me’ – through which much of our science is delivered, with Forest School learning at its heart.
