Welcome to Hedgehog Class

This Half Term our Topic is Hooray for Fish!

Summer 2 Letter Hedeghog 2018 Summer 2 Topic Web Hedgehog 2018


Please find attached our current topic web and class letters. You can email Miss Johnstone here e.johnstone@swsf.org

In Literacy we will be looking at the stories ‘Hooray for Fish!’ and ‘Surprising Sharks’.

The children will retell Hooray for Fish! and innovate their own versions using Story Square. We will look for rhyming words in the text and find our own adjectives to create our own fish based on the story. We will segment and write all the sounds we can hear in words to write sentences which we can read back.

This half term the children will be consolidating Phase two and three sounds in our daily phonics lessons. We will also be reading and spelling words containing adjacent consonants and polysyllabic words.

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

do, when, out, what, oh, Mrs, people, their, called, Mr, looked, asked, could


In Maths we will be learning:

  • 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 such as looking at the size of fish and measuring them in different ways.
  • 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.

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”
