Welcome to the Spring Term in Hedgehog Class

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"

In Maths we will be learning to:

• solve problems involving doubling, halving and sharing.
• order two items by weight or capacity.
• use everyday language to talk about weight and capacity to compare quantities and objects and to solve problems.
• recognise and order numbers 0-20 and solve missing number problems.

In storytime, children learn about how to retell a story and innovate their own versions using story boards before writing their own 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.

Through daily phonics sessions we will be working our way through the different phases, along with Tricky Words and the Jolly Phonics and actions. We will practice reading and writing sentences containing tricky words, high frequency words and two-syllable words.
