Hedgehogs - F1

Hedgehog Class

Hedgehog Class 1




 We are the Hedgehog Class and we are the youngest and liveliest children at John Hunt Primary School!






   Our teacher is Mrs Good and our teaching assistant is Mrs Anstey. Mrs Armstrong comes and joins us on a Friday.

 We work from 8:30 in the morning until 3:30 in the afternoon.  Some of us stay all day and go to Lunch Club and some of us stay for just the morning or afternoon session.


Each child is special to us and we endeavour to guide  and nurture them, offering a happy, safe and stimulating environment where they will flourish and be the best they can be.


Whatever it is, we enjoy rolling up our sleeves and getting stuck in. You may find us planting golden daffodils, creating perfect pizzas, counting conkers we have gathered or writing letters in the air with our bottoms!


We are a purpose built Foundation Stage Unit with four interlocking indoor areas as well as our own outdoor learning zone and field! We cater for our youngest children who are 3years old and attend part or full time as well as our full time older children who are 5.

  Over the next half term, we would like the children to practise using scissors. Please can everyone work at home to help their child use scissors. We would recommend a pair of scissors similar to the ones in the photographs above. These are available from most supermarkets and cost about 50p.

    We would love to see you practising with your child, so please post on Tapestry. Thank you !

Our Remembrance Garden

   We went to our Remembrance Garden to think about the soldiers. 

  Bonfire Surprise

  Today we built a bonfire at school. We had to be careful and we talked about how to keep safe. We collected sticks from the field and used these to build our fire. Whilst we watched the fire we enjoyed hot dogs and hot chocolate and sang camp fire songs.
