Welcome to Hedgehog Class' webpage. Here you will find updates about what we have been learning about and doing.
Presentation for Parents
Please try to read with your child every night to help them stay green.

Spellings

We will put the spellings for each week in your child's contact book every Friday. Please help your child practice these along with the key words on the front of their contact book. There will be a spelling test every Friday afternoon.

Morning Work

Every morning when the children come in to school they change their reading books and settle themselves down to complete tasks that develop their fine motor skills and support their learning.

Our Power of Reading text this term is Beegu. This is the story of a little alien who finds herself on earth and is looking for friends until she can get back to her own planet.

The children have enjoyed exploring Beegu's story. We have thought about how she feels whilst she is on earth and have posed as Beegu to answer questions from our classmates.

We have pretended to be Beegu and her friends to think about all the fun things we could do here on Earth.

The children made their own aliens from salt dough which they are looking forward to decorating along with junk model spaceships. We will use these as the inspiration for writing our own stories about lost aliens.

Maths

In Maths we have been working on number. We have been consolidating our understanding of numbers 0-9, thinking about grouping and sorting objects, less than and more than and finding more and less of a given number. We are also working on our number bonds to 10 and have used money, numicon and cubes to support this. The children really enjoyed 'being' a numberline for others to jump along when learning to do addition by counting on!

Phonics

The children have been working really hard to develop their understanding of phonics. They have enjoyed learning new sounds and blending sounds and segmenting words. Please ask if you would like ideas to help your child support this at home.

Science

We have had an enjoyable start to Science this term. We have explored materials and discussed their properties and uses.  The children recently went on a nature walk to observe natural changes in our local environment and collected lots of autumnal treasures.

We started the term by thinking about how to stay safe online. We have also begun thinking about algorithms by writing directions for Beegu to visit places on Earth.

History

We will be constructing timelines of our own lives and events that are important to us.

Geography

We went for a walk around Margate, spotting and talking about local landmarks. We then make our own maps of Margate. The children began to learn about directional language through this work.

We have begun Religious Education by focusing on Christianity. The children have enjoyed learning the Parable of the Lost Son and we are retelling the story through puppets to help us understand feelings within the bible story.
