In Hedgehog Class we love to be active in our learning. Playing and exploring is a key part of our curriculum and we often do this in our large outdoor area.
Children are encouraged to be creative, think critically and make links between their ideas. Our Early Years environment provides children with a range of rich, meaningful play-based experiences and they are given the opportunity to engage in both adult led and self- initiated learning.
We have an exciting and challenging curriculum based on our observations of children which builds obn thei prior knowledge, interest and understanding.
Phonics is taught every day through engaging learning activities using the ‘Letters and Sounds’ scheme and ‘Jolly Phonics’ resources.
Children are encouraged to develop their independent skills and an emphasis is placed on supporting all pupils to communicate effectively and build secure relationships with peers and school adults.
The curriculum in Hedgehog class is broad and balanced and covers all 7 areas of Learning and Teaching: Personal, Social and Emotional development, Communication and Language, Mathematics, Physical Development, Literacy, Understanding the World, Expressive Arts and Design.
