Hedgehog Class

Hedgehog class is taught by Mr Grafton, Mrs Smale and Mrs Hambleton.

Hedgehog class consists of children in Foundation Stage and here they are!

Key Information

We will have our PE session on a Tuesday every week. Your child's PE kit will need to be in school for them to change into for each session. We will also be using the outdoor area but we will not need to change for this. Aprons must be worn when learning in the water area and in the mud kitchen. Once a week, the children will take part in Forest School. The school have waterproof trousers and coats, however, you can provide our own if you wish. The children will need their own pair of wellies as Forest School can get very muddy!

The classroom consists of an indoor and outdoor area. These areas are set up in a way which will encourage children to experiment, develop and progress in the following areas:

  • Personal, social and emotional development
  • Communication and language
  • Physical development (gross and fine motor)
  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Understanding of the world
  • Expressive arts and design

Curriculum and Topic

Exploration, experimentation and play are encouraged in Hedgehog class and we aim to provide an environment where children are confident to be independent, take risks and also develop their social skills too.
