Welcome to our class page! We are the Hedgehogs!
Our teacher is Mrs Beccy Spicer. Mrs Nurser and Mrs Bird-Hawkins are our teaching assistants. Mrs Nurser works with us on a Monday morning, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Mrs Bird-Hawkins works with us on a Monday afternoon and Friday.
We like to have lots of fun with our learning. We spend a lot of time learning through purposeful play. We aim for children to feel happy, safe and secure so they can thrive with their learning. We encourage children to be confident learners where they believe that anything is possible.
We learn to read and write using phonics. We use the Read Write Inc scheme. To help us with our maths learning we use Numicon. Throughout the year we have different topics and we also encourage the children to learn and develop through their own interests.
Have a look at some of the wonderful learning that we have been doing!
Week beginning 23rd November 2020
This week we have been reading the Percy Park Keeper story 'The Secret Path'.
This inspired us to make our own secret doors. We cut out our doors and decorated them with hinges and a door handle. We use our scissors to carefully cut out the shapes we wanted.
We then wrote about what we would like to find behind our secret doors. We used our phonic skills to sound out the words we wanted to write.
Fantastic learning this week Reception! We are so proud of you!

This Week's Star is Dexter. He has been doing some excellent thinking within maths. When learning about the number 6 Dexter was able to say what numbers you could add together to make the number 6! Wow Dexter! Well done!
Week beginning 16th November
We have been investigating autumn this week. We went on an autumn colour walk. First we predicted what colours we thought we would find and then we went on a welly walk and found as many colours as we could.
We received a letter from the person who left the boots and coat in our classroom. It was Percy the Park Keeper!
We decided to help him and we drew plans of a park. We labelled our pictures with words. We used our 'Fred Fingers' to sound out the words! We are really enjoyed our writing!
RE and Creation
We have been learning about the Creation story and independently collaged pictures of God's creations.
This week's STAR OF THE WEEK!
Finley is our star of the week for trying hard with everything he does!
Well done Finley! You are a superstar!
Week beginning 9th November 2020
We started the week with a mystery. Someone had been in our classroom and left a coat and wellington boots. This led to lots of excitement and curiosity. We discussed who we thought these belonged to and then wrote our ideas down.
Our ideas were a farmer, a giant, a builder. They are not Mrs Spicer's boots as they are very big! Who do you think they belong to?
We enjoyed observational drawing this week using some of the autumnal objects the children had collected during the half term holiday.
Children in Need
We had lots of fun on 'Feel Good Friday' for Children in Need. We enjoyed dressing up in colourful clothes. We joined in with Joe Wick's PE challenge! Well done Reception.. you were fantastic and the school raised approximately £750!
