Hedgehog Class

Reception Home Learning Timetable

Year 1 Home Learning Timetable 

Welcome to Hedgehog Class!  We are a mixed Reception and Year 1 class. Mrs Howe and Mrs Haskins are our teachers & Mrs Stride helps us throughout the week.  We work very closely with Fox Class and together our unit is a very positive and happy environment.  We aim to provide a safe, caring and supportive atmosphere where children can reach their full potential.

Reception children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum, which includes the following areas:

The three prime areas:

Communication and Language

  • Physical development
  • Personal, social and emotional development 

And the four specific areas:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the world
  • Expressive arts and design 

We also follow the National Curriculum for Year 1.

In our unit we follow a creative topic approach to learning.

We look forward to working with you and your child to ensure their time in the unit is a happy and positive one.  If you have a special skill/job or knowledge that you would like to share; then we would love to hear from you!  Or if you would like to volunteer to listen to readers or help in some other way we would be delighted to have you working with us!  Please let us know.

Take a look at some of our activities & adventures this year.
