Autumn 1 Welcome Letter Hedgehog Class 2018                        Autumn 1 2018 Topic Web

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 story Little Red Riding Hood.

The children will retell Little Red Riding Hood 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 fairy tale. We will also practice recognising and writing our names. We will write the initial sounds in words using letters to communicate meaning when writing.

Through daily phonics sessions we will be learning phase 2 letter sounds.

 We will be learning to blend and read high frequency words:

is, it, in, at, and

We will be learning to read tricky words:

to, the, I, no, go


In Maths we will be learning:

  • To develop a deep knowledge of numbers to five through:
  • Practising accurate counting with 1:1 correspondence.
  • Recognising and ordering numerals to five and matching numerals to quantity.
  • Saying the number one more and one less than a given number to five.
  • Finding different ways to partition sets of five objects.
  • We will also be using mathematical names for 2D shapes and mathematical terms to describe shapes, as well as using familiar objects and shapes to create and recreate patterns.


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”
