EYFS - Hedgehogs

Class Teacher: Mrs Cassie Brodie and Mrs Emily Holmes

Class Teaching Assistant: Mrs Kelly Read

In our Reception Class our day consists of both child-initiated and adult-led learning. All of our learning comes from our children and their interests and this ensures our children are excited and motivated to learn. Through careful questioning and observations our staff ensure children are challenged and develop a love of school and of learning.

Hedgehog Class enjoys learning outside and taking part in weekly Forest School sessions. We also enjoy activities such as funky fingers, cooking and singing.

Early reading, writing and maths skills are a large part of our learning and this is taught in a fun and practical way.

Parents play a huge part in their child’s learning and school-life. We hold weekly ‘Open Door’ sessions to enable parents to come into school and see their child’s learning. This is also a wonderful time to speak with our Reception team. We also use Tapestry as a means of communicating with parents and recording observations within each child’s profile.

Maths Week 2022


Hedgehogs class took part in an outdoor maths challenge, finding different numbers of objects, outside in pairs using the maths challenge cards provided.

The children looked at the power of 2 and worked with their partners to create a pattern or arrangement using two different cubes, without their partner looking, they then had to describe it to their friends before the partner tried to make the same without seeing the original. The children did so well. 

The children have also explored maths activities in the forest school; collecting data on different types of leaves. They discussed their findings and interpreted the data together.
