Welcome to Hedgehog Class

About us

In Hedgehog class, we are all in year 2, our last year of Key Stage 1.


Our teacher is called Mrs MacNeil and we have a number of other adults that work in our class at different times during the week; Mrs Pearce, Mrs Winfield and Mrs Mayhew. T


Our Homework

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 book. 

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.
