Welcome to Hedgehog Class
In Hedgehog class, we are all in year 2, our last year of Key Stage 1.
Our teacher is called Mrs Foster and we have a number of other adults that work in our class at different times during the week; Mrs Pearce, Mrs Jackson, Mrs Keighley, Mrs Hurst and Mrs Dobney. This year we are covering three different topics, our first being 'Me, Myself and I' (looking at our families and where we live), then in the Spring term it is 'What's up there?' (looking at space and what we can find out) and finally in the Summer term our topic is 'One Well' (looking at the water in our world and how it is used for many different things).
Homework is obviously the best way for you to support us at school. Reading with us regularly, asking us comprehension questions and helping with our spellings are essential. We all have weekly spellings, connected to our Letters and Sounds phase, which is stuck into our diaries each week. We also receive a ‘look, say, cover, write, check’ sheet, in our homework folder. Additionally, either a maths sheet will be sent home (in the folder) or it may be set online, https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/login. We have their login ID in our diaries too.
Sometimes for English homework, we get talk homework for our 'Show Off' writing, this is to help us talk through and gain ideas for a piece of writing that we will be completing independently at school. Reading comprehensions are another type of English homework that we get, along with handwriting.
At some points during the year, usually over a holiday period, we may get project homework to complete in the format of our choice.
Reading, spelling and homework activities will be monitored every week and house points allocated when homework is completed. Homework is sent home on a Friday and is due in the following Wednesday.
