Miss Simkins, Mrs Abrahams and Mrs Baker welcome you to Hedgehogs!
A warm welcome to all our lovely new Hedgehogs in Year 1! We are delighted to have made such a strong start to our new school year. There's a lot to learn about being in Year 1 and the children are keeping up wonderfully. Our new team stop signal relies on the children staying alert and aware. They are managing brilliantly and gently supporting each other to stop at the right time - I'm very proud of them already! This is our class webpage where you can keep up to date with all our Hedgehog news - keep checking back here for updates and photos.
We have a welcome evening coming up on 18th September at 3:15 - 3:45pm. Please drop in to meet the teacher, have a look around the classroom, pick up a Year 1 information sheet and ask any transition questions you may have. We look forward to seeing you there but if you can't make it, let me know and I will make a copy of any information handed out for your child's book bag.
Our first topic is a history topic called Turrets and Tiaras! We've already been down on the nature trail hunting for clues for our new topic and printing castle pictures. It's a lovely topic which helps children connect with the past in a fun and meaningful way. We'll be holding a dressing up and medieval games day towards the end of the topic - date tbc!
We're looking forward to a super year in Hedgehogs and hope you are too!
