Welcome to Hedgehog Class


This Half Term our Topic is Space!

Please find attached our current topic web and class letters. You can email Miss Johnstone here

In Literacy we will be learning the story ‘Supertato’

The children will retell the story and innovate their own versions. We will segment and write all the sounds we can hear in words to create labels.  We will write captions and begin to write simple sentences.

This Half Term the children will learn the following sounds in daily phonics lessons:

ai, ee, igh, oa, oo, ar, or, ur, ow, oi, ear, air, ure, er

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

my, you, they, her, all, are


In Maths we will be learning:


  • practising counting reliably with numbers from 1-20 and recognising the numerals.
  • estimating a number of objects and checking by counting them.
  • learning the names of some 3D shapes and using mathematical language to describe them.
  • using everyday language related to time.


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.

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”
