Welcome to the Autumn Term in Hedgehog Class

We are Reception Class and our teacher is Miss Johnstone.

Our topic this term is 'Once Upon A Time'. We incorporate the four cornerstones of the C360 curriculum into the teaching and learning of our Early Years Foundation Stage setting.


In Hedgehog class we have been working with the Bampton Town Council to plant trees in our village Community Orchard. The children planted 75 trees and will be monitoring their progress and providing a report to the Council as they nurture the trees and watch them grow. The children showed the virtue of friendliness as they worked together with Squirrel Class and the wider community, digging, planting and staking the trees. We have been enjoying our local environment and have been visiting the orchard to spot minibeasts as well as learning to identify the Rowan, Hazel, Hawthorn, Crab Apple, Dog Wood and Silver Birch trees we planted.




We learn stories through role play, story mapping, rhyme and story telling. We enjoy learning poems and rhymes and have committed to learning a rhyme a week by heart which we perform daily, developing our vocabulary and building our confidence to become inspiring speakers. We recently put on a virtual class performance to our families and the other classes at Bampton School of all the poems and rhymes we have learnt so far this term.

Below is our curriculum plan and other information sent  home to parents and carers.
