Welcome to Hedgehog Class

This term the whole school topic is China.

In Literacy we will be looking at the story The Magic Paintbrush retold by Julia Donaldson.

The children will retell The Magic Paintbrush and innovate their own versions using Story Square before writing their own short stories. We will segment and write the sounds we hear in words, using a sound mat for support to recall and form the correct grapheme. We will also be challenging ourselves to write captions, sentences and instructions on how to cook noodles.

Through daily phonics sessions we will be continuing to learn Phase 3 sounds along with the Jolly Phonics songs and actions.

We will be learning to read tricky words:

into, he, she, we, me, be, was, you, they, all, are, my her


In Maths we will be learning to:

• count reliably with numbers from 1-20 and recognising the numerals.
• estimate a number of objects and check by counting.
• name some 3D shapes and use mathematical language to describe them.
• use everyday language related to time, money and position.


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”
