Welcome to Hedgehogs class page.
Mrs Lewis and Mrs Key would like to welcome you to the Hedgehogs class page. A warm welcome back and we hope you had a lovely break.
In our class we aim to provide a positive learning environment where all children are encouraged to become independent learners as well as engaged and challenged in their learning to reach their full potential.
Each week in the home school diary we will continue to update you with our learning and provide any relevant messages. There is also a communication page for you to use at home. If necessary, you can leave messages. Please record in your child’s yellow reading record when you have read together at home and then they can tick their home school diary to show that they have read. Children who read every day will be eligible for our weekly reading draw.
Our topic for the first half of the autumn term is London's Burning. Further information about what we will be covering can be found below. We have lots of exciting and memorable learning experiences planned.
We will be updating the class blog regularly. To view this please click here
Swimming will take place every Thursday. Our other PE lesson will be on a Wednesday. Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school at all times.
Spellings will be set each Friday and tested on the following Friday. However, please ensure your child has their spelling book in their book bag every day. We would also encourage practising these daily at home.
KS1 Teacher assessment
During May 2018, children in year 2 will sit SATS papers. There are 5 test papers:
• Reading x 2
• English grammar, punctuation and spelling (optional)
• Maths arithmetic
• Maths reasoning
For 2018 the KS1 English grammar, punctuation and spelling test remains optional. We will NOT be administering this test.
Instead of the old national curriculum levels, children will be given a standardised score. Teacher assessments will also be used to build up a picture of your child’s learning and achievements. At the end of the school year your child will receive an overall result saying whether or not they have achieved the expected standard for their age.
Please use links below for more information.
