Welcome to Hedgehogs!
We would like to welcome everyone to Hedgehogs 2023-24. Our team this year will consist of Mrs Williams (class teacher), Mrs Loveland and Miss Plant. We have built a strong team and have been working hard to get the classroom ready for this year. Our class consists of Reception and Year One children with some lessons being taught as a whole class, i.e. English, humanities, and others in year groups i.e. maths, phonics and science.
Children in Reception will follow the Early Years curriculum whilst those in Year One will follow the National Curriculum. We work hard to ensure that we identify next steps for all children, building on their strengths and supporting areas for development.
We value working with parents, carers, wider family and friends with each child being at the centre of this support network. We are an approachable team so please come and talk to us with any concerns, questions or important information about your child. We are available at the end of every day or please make an appointment via the office for a mutually convenient time.
We look forward to a fantastic year ahead!
For this half term (Spring 1), forest school will be on Monday with PE on Tuesdays and Thursdays. All children will need their forest school kit in a bag on Mondays and come dressed for PE on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
