Reception 

Welcome to Hedgehog Class

The teacher in Hedgehog Class is Mrs Becky Edmonds.

Mrs Edmonds is supported by our experienced teaching assistants Mrs Elaine McCrorie, Mrs Lorraine Carne and Mrs Helen Conlon.

 

We have a lovely area for learning, the children are able to access the classroom, conservatory and outside area during child-initiated learning. We access the outside area during all weathers so please ensure that your child has a pair of wellies and a waterproof coat in school.

We team up with Nursery once a week for 'Forest School' and enrichment activities. We do P.E. twice a week, on a Monday with Mrs Edmonds and on a Thursday with one of the coaches from District Sports. We ask that you try and read at home with your child three times a week and record this in their purple reading diary, this will help them earn their Reading Champion badges.

We follow Development Matters, first of all focussing on the prime areas of development, before working on the specific areas and then the Early Learning Goals. Practical, fun and engaging tasks are planned for the children to access during their play and when working with an adult.

Click on the following links to see what we are going to be learning this year. We follow the children's interests so some of this planning might change.
