Summer 2 Letter Hedgehog Class

Summer 2 Topic Web Hedgehog

In Literacy we will be learning the story ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch’.

The children will write sentences linked to this story. We will innovate the story, changing how Mrs Grinling can stop the seagulls eating the lunch, and then create stories based on ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch’ of our own. We will also create some information sheets about different sea creatures.

This Half Term the children will be beginning to blend adjacent consonants in Phonics, whilst continuing to recap our Phase 3 Sounds.

 We will be learning to read the following Tricky words by sight:

oh, their, people, Mr, Mrs.


In Maths we will be:

  • In Maths we will continue to work with numbers to 20; recognising and ordering, saying the number one more and one less, and counting on and back to add and subtract.
  • We will also be solving problems connected to the seaside.
  • We will recognise, create and describe patterns.
  • We will explore characteristics of everyday objects, such as those found at the seaside, and shapes, and use mathematical language to describe them.

In Hedgehog class we all want to be Super Learners! Super Learners try their hardest, use their imagination, make people happy, talk about their learning, try new things and experiment with different methods and resources.

Our School Values are Trust and Honesty, Aiming High, Respect, Kindness, Joy, Friendship and Compassion.

This Term Hedgehog’s are focusing on the value of Friendship.

Along with our values, our school ethos is Believing, Belonging and Becoming. The Three B’s are part of our everyday approach to learning and school life. Below are just a few examples of what these three B’s mean to us in Hedgehog Class:


“I believe in Father Christmas – I saw his reindeers in the sky!”

“I believe in God and Jesus”

“I believe what my sister tells me”


“I belong to my family”

“I belong to Bampton”

“We belong to Bampton School”

“I belong to swimming club”


We want to become…

“a mummy” “a daddy” “a knight with a shield” “a princess doing ballet” “a sister” “a policeman” “a musketeer” “a teacher” “a hairdresser” “a farmer” “a policeman” “a vet” “an astronaut”
