Happy Hedgehogs play and learn…
And then we tidy up
Welcome to Hedgehogs!
In class Miss Stower is your class teacher and Mrs Smyth and Miss Scott will also be working in your class this year.
This is the year is an exciting time as your child’s time at primary school begins. Your child will learn by doing things for themselves, by exploring and investigating, watching and listening, talking and discussing, creating and communicating, increasing their independence, curiosity and enjoyment for learning new things.
The Reception Year is the final stage of the Early Years Curriculum and your child will continue to study the seven areas of learning: Communication and Language, Physical Development, Personal, Social and Emotional Development. Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World, Expressive Arts and Design.
These areas of learning work alongside each other and most of the time your child will be learning all seven areas of learning together. They will be covering all kinds of important learning; working with different materials, shapes, quantity and volume, creating imaginative worlds, feeling different textures, and even developing motor skills and strength for writing.
Your child will be extremely busy playing and learning in Hedgehogs Class and play and learning be very messy, as your child will be learning inside the classroom with sand, water, paint, and in the outdoors with mud, leaves etc. so you can expect some dirty clothes at the end of the day!
Your child will be informally observed throughout their time in Reception. These observations will be used to assess your child’s learning. You can help with this too by making simple informal observations at home. You can write WOW Moments or Magic Moments that can be added to your child’s Learning Journey.
If you have, any worries or concerns please let a member of staff know about them. By talking concerns through together, we can all benefit and learn more about your child.
