Hedgehog Class 2020 - 2021

Class 2 Teacher

Hello Hedgehog Class!


Well I can't quite believe it is September again and we are back in class. It has been so wonderful to see all of the children's faces and welcome some new ones to the class! The children have settled in so well and I have been extremely impressed with how well they have adapted during these strange times.

Although parents are unable to enter the school building due to our strict "class bubbles", I will be on the gate every morning to greet the children and every afternoon to say goodbye. Please feel free to come over if you have any queries. 

Reading is still a priority in our classroom. The children will be involved in daily guided reading sessions to enhance their word reading and comprehension skills. As well as this, children will be encouraged to take home a reading book appropriate for their reading age. Baseline assessments are well underway so that we can assess each childs reading age accurately. Once this is done, pupil's may choose a book of their choice to take home. When they are finished with the book, it will be quarantined in our special box for 72 hours before returning to the shelf.

Every Monday, spellings wil be uploaded to Seesaw. Children have been sorted into spelling groups, therefore they will receive spellings matching their ability. We will do our regular spelling time to shine on a Monday morning. Usual red spelling books will not be sent home, however we will be using them in school to do lots of spelling practice.

P.E is every Monday and Wednesday afternoon. Monday sessions will be cross country and we will be making the most of the fantastic environment around us to do some hill running as well as relay races! Wednesday will hone in on other skills such as throwing and catching, playing organised games etc.

Woodland school is every Thursday afternoon and is our favourite part of the week! We will go rain or shine so please ensure children arrive with suitable clothing for all weather. They will not need a change of clothes on any of the above days.

Thank you to all parents for ensuring the children are arriving every day with a water bottle. 

Myself and Miss Jones are really looking forward to the year ahead and although we are in uncertain times, let me assure you that we will strive to make each day a positive learning experience for your child.

All the best,

Laura Anderson
