Welcome to the Hedgehogs’ Class.
Class Teachers: Mrs Merritt and Mrs Hewett
Class TA: Mrs Quinn, Mrs Gray, Miss Hayter
We hope that your first week at home went well. It has been a very unusual time for us all and we are really missing all the Hedgehog children.
Each week we are aiming to post some suggested activities that you may like to do with your children in addition to the learning packs that we have sent home (please see the link below).
We do realise that everyone’s work commitments and family situation is different and there is no expectation to complete all of the tasks suggested. They are suggestions and if you wish to adapt them and go with your child’s interests that is fine.
Let me bring to your attention the link below for Teach your Monster to read, this is an excellent resource to support the learning of reading, phonics, key words and comprehension.
If your child is struggling to understand the current situation you may be interested in ‘The COVIBOOK.’ This has been designed to support and reassure children around the world. It's a great resource that explains about Covid 19 in several different languages & illustrations.
