Hedgehogs – F1

Hello Hedgehogs!

 We are the hedgehogs; the littlest and liveliest children at John Hunt Primary School!


Our teacher is Miss Laskey and our teaching assistant is Mrs Bruce. We have 22 little hedgehogs to welcome this September... some will be staying all day (8:30am-3:30pm), others we will see in either the morning (8:30-11:30am) or the afternoon (12:30-3:30pm).


Each child is special to us and we hope to give them the best start to school life, here in Foundation 1! We enjoy creating 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 jumping in muddy puddles in our wellies, baking tasty treats, counting conkers we have gathered or writing letters in shaving foam with our fingers! We love offering unique and wonderful learning opportunities that children are excited  to tell you all about when they go home!


Please come and speak to us if you have any questions or concerns (end of the session is ideal unless it can’t wait) or feel free to drop me an email at and I will get back to you ASAP.

Autumn Term

During the Autumn Term, 0ur primary focus will be settling in, exploring the environment, making friends and learning all about ourselves and each other. Alongside this, we will be exploring the topics `Woodland Wonder` and `Warm & Cosy,` offering opportunities for our own Autumn adventures! You may find us busy making hedgehog dens, baking Gruffalo crumble or off on a bear hunt! Prepare for lots of FUN!!
