Welcome to the Spring Term in Hedgehog Class

Dear Parents/Carers,


I hope you had an enjoyable and peaceful Christmas.

This week we will be moving to remote online teaching using the Seesaw platform which has already been set up. I will resend invitations with our Seesaw class code for those of you who have not yet signed onto our online classroom.

For those of you who do not have access to an online device, our printed initial home learning packs including handwriting practise are available on request from bamptonstaff@alumnismat.org. We will also be putting copies onto our Distance Learning page of the Bampton School website https://sites.google.com/alumnismat.org/bampton-home-learning-links/classes

Work will be posted daily onto the Hedgehog online classroom which your child will be able to complete and post back onto the class journal. It is an expectation that your child completes each activity that is assigned.

We will be contacting everyone over the lockdown period by telephone to stay in touch and ensure that the home learning is accessible.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.


Many thanks,

Esther Johnstone


EYFS Teacher (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"
