Welcome to Hedgehog's class page!
Your Teacher is called Mrs McGuire and your Teaching Assistants are Mrs Hawkins and Miss Stacey. We also have the Go Active Team and Plymouth Music Service working with our class every Tuesday afternoon. On Friday afternoon our class will have their weekly spelling test and new spellings will be issued. PE is taught on a Tuesday and Wednesday so please leave your child's PE kit in a bag in school. On our class window we will have a sign saying 'Ask me about...', this is to enable you to talk to your child about what they have learnt in class that week. It will be changed regularly so please look out for our sign.
This week's star of the week is
Marley is an amazing young man who is passionate about his reading. He likes to use expression when reading and has a great story-telling style. He is an enthusiastic learner and a great person to have in Hedgehog Class.
Thank you to all parents who have been reading at home with their children - it really makes a difference! We recommend 10 minutes a day if possible. Regular reading truly makes a difference to their attainment and will help to develop a life long love of reading. For those children who are on A.R. readers, we will work hard to 'quiz' your children on their books as often as possible but there may be occasions where they slip through the net. If this happens, we will make sure they are quizzed the following day. Please continue to fill in their reading diaries as we generally rely on your comments to let us know they are ready. As always, please feel free to pop in and see me if you would like any guidance on how to support your child's reading skills. Children are also becoming more independent in their reading so we are trying to encourage them to read to themselves if they have some free time - there really is nothing better than a good book!
