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.
We follow the Early Years Curriculum at John Hunt Primary School.This is made up
of the Prime Areas and the Specific Areas.

Everyone has settled in now and we are making new friends, taking care of each other and learning together. Every week our Foundation ladies add photographs and comments about our learning onto Tapestry for our families to see what we are up to. Mrs Good has added our topic plan so you can see what we will find out about in the Autumn Term.
Thank you Miss Law for making us some special Feeling Friends for helping us to talk about how we feel.
We went on an Autumn Treasure Hunt Today !

Amazing Take Care Homework.

We have had a very busy half term in Hedgehog Class. We have made lots of new friends. Everyone has settled and we are ready to face new challenges ahead!
HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!
Welcome Back Everyone!
Thank you for all the super Tapestry entries telling us all about your child's adventures during the holidays. We are sharing them with the children.
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 went to our Remembrance Garden to think about the soldiers.
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.
