Hedgehogs

To my amazing Hedgehogs, 
 
2020 has been a very strange year for so many reasons, but mainly because our 'normal lives' had to change so drastically. It has not been the same in school since our class had to stay at home.
 
When we started our year together back in September, we couldn’t have predicted how our lives were about to change. Those first few months as a class were great fun and it was a real privilege to watch you progress academically and socially. You all made me laugh with your sense of fun and adventure and I was really proud of how you were compassionate and supportive of each other’s achievements. 
 
In the two terms that we had together we had visitors from the police and fire service. We also practised and performed our Christmas production and you all did an amazing job of learning your lines and the songs. We also teamed up with Squirrel Class for our enterprise week where we made things to sell and games to play. You will make excellent entrepreneurs in the future.

In September I will be lucky enough to teach some of you again and those who are not in my class next year will be right next door. We will all be learning together, and I am excited about the new topics we will be exploring. Those of you who are moving on to Year 2 will also see me a lot as I will be coming to work with you too. It was a real pleasure to have, each and every one of you in my class, even if it was such a short year. You are an amazing group of children. 
 
To all the grown-up Hedgehogs that have supported these children and us as a class, thank you for all of your hard work. 
 
Have a wonderful summer with your families and always remember “Hedgehogs are the BEST class”. 
 
A super proud, Mrs McGuire

Welcome to Hedgehog's class page!

Your Teacher is called Mrs McGuire and your Teaching Assistants are Mrs Hawkins and Miss Trapnell. To support your child's oracy skills we have a sign on the window saying 'Ask me about...'. This is to enable you to talk to your child about what they have learnt in class that week and it will be changed regularly, so please look out for our sign. We also have a white board just outside our door where we will place any information or reminders you might need. We look forward to having a fabulous year with your child and if you have any concerns please do not hesitate to come and speak to us. 

Important notices

 

  • Our class PE day is a Thursday. Please ensure your child comes to school wearing their full P.E kit. Normal school uniform is to be worn for the rest of the week. 

Curriculum

 

World Book Day. Hedgehog Class had a great time sharing their books with some Year 5 children today.

Hedgehog Class really enjoy their music lessons. They are learning how to use tuned and untuned instruments and also how to create a graphic score.

Hedgehog Class really enjoy our 'Stay and Learn' sessions. It is great to see our parents joining in and supporting their children in their learning. Also a big well done to our adult flyers.

Our Forest School adventures.

Homework and home learning

 

Children will bring home their reading books everyday. Please remember to sign their reading diaries to show us they have read with you. We encourage the children to read at home for 5-10 minutes a night. The children are prompted to change their reading books as often as possible as reading can make a tremendous difference to their confidence and attainment in class. 

 

Each week the children will bring home spellings to learn. The spellings are linked to Year 1 & 2 spellings set by the National Curriculum. Spellings will be sent home every Friday and the children will be tested on the following Friday. Please encourage your child to practise daily and orally test them as much as you can. We want all of the children to be able to spell the word using the letter names rather than the sounds they make. Some children still need to practise decoding the words you say on their own (independently). 

 

Children will also bring maths homework. They will be given a Times Table sheet (flying). The children are encouraged to learn their 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables by the time they leave Year 2. The Times Table sheet tests their fluency of being able to answer a series of questions in a set amount of time. We have named each 'station' a different country name. For example, The United Kingdom is for 2 and 10 times tables, France is 2 and 5 times tables and Spain is 3 and 5 times tables, etc. We have specific lessons teaching them how multiplication works and is useful and relevant in their daily lives. 

If you would like any blank sheets feel free to pop in and let me know.
