Year 1 - Hedgehogs


Welcome back! 


It has been lovely to welcome the children back to school. They have settled back in brilliantly and we have all enjoyed hearing about their exciting Christmas break.  I am very impressed with all of the children who have completed their holiday homework.  


This half term the children will be learning all about Neil Armstrong in our next project ‘Three, Two, One… Blast Off!’  Please see the integrated learning unit for this topic, which can be found further down on this page, for information about the learning that will take place this half term, as well as ideas for a home learning task.  


I am very much looking forward to discussing your child’s progress and next steps with those of you attending parents’ evening, however, please remember that my door is always open.


Wishing you a very happy New Year.  Miss Dyer.



Wow!  I can’t believe it is half term already!  The time has flown by!  We have now completed our first topic (Snails, Tails and the Nature Trail) and the children have applied all of their science knowledge, in order to help Mr Green improve the school grounds.   


This half term break, we have sent home some spellings and some optional homework activities, in order for the children to consolidate their learning at home.  Each week, I will upload the spellings to this webpage, in addition to sending them home with your child.  


Our next topic is ‘Food Glorious Food’ and we have a very exciting day planned for the children’s return to school.  You will find more information about this project on the integrated learning unit below. 


Please remember that I am available at the end of every day if you have any questions, queries or concerns or would simply like to discuss your child’s progress so far.  Miss Dyer


 Welcome to Hedgehogs!



Welcome back to school and a very warm welcome to Hedgehogs' Class.  This year the children in Hedgehogs will be working with myself (Miss Dyer), Mrs Card and Mrs Isherwood.  


All three of us have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the children better and we have been very impressed with how quickly each child has settled into their new Year One class, new routines and new responsibilities.  The Hedgehogs have all been fantastic.  Their behavior is excellent and they have demonstrated many of our school learning values already.  In particular, we have been impressed with how well the children’s confidence, independence and resilience is developing.  


Lower down on this page you will find the long term curriculum overview for the year 2019/20.  This outlines the projects that your child will study this year, as well as other key information for Year One.  You will also find a copy of the integrated learning unit for our first topic, ‘Snails, Tails and the Nature Trail’.  The integrated learning units will be uploaded for each project and are designed to outline the knowledge and skills that your child will learn throughout each half term, as well as some ideas for how to support them at home.


I will endeavour to keep our class webpage up to date with correspondence, spellings and a range of other resources to help you further support your child’s progress at home, however, if you think of anything else you would like access to, please come and see me at the end of the day.  I am available daily and I am more than happy to help.  Thank you for your support.   Miss Dyer.
