Welcome to Hedgehog Class.
Hedgehog Class is our Year 2 Class.
Class Teacher - Miss Sneyd
Teaching Assistants - Mrs Mattison and Mrs Hutton
We would like to warmly welcome you to Hedgehog Class. On our web page, you will find information about our class as well as all of our super learning.
Reading is at the core of our learning at Branston Church of England Infant Academy. Throughout our school we promote a love of reading that will last a lifetime. Whether it be reading our class story to the whole class, the children reading to an adult or the children reading to each other, we recognise the importance of taking pleasure from a story and sharing that with our friends. Please fill in your child's Reading Record to record what they have read. We love to hear about your child's amazing reading!!
Homework will be set at the beginning of the term. There will be 9 activities for you to choose from: 3 English tasks, 3 Maths tasks and 3 topic tasks. Please choose 1 activity each week. Homework books are due in each week on Monday and will be returned to your child on Wednesday.
PE days are Wednesday and Thursday. Please can all children arrive in school wearing their PE kit on these days. If your child is taking part in Miss Fenton's football club this term, they will also need to wear their PE kits on Tuesday too.
Our topic this term is Land Ahoy! The children will be learning about what it was like to be a real life pirate and learning about the lives of famous pirates too. In Science, we will be exploring materials and their properties in order to create our own sea-worthy vessel. Through our music lessons, the children will learn a variety of sea shanties and put their own unique twist on them through the use of dynamics and body percussion. This term in our PE lessons we will be focusing on ball skills and tennis.
Our pirate topic is reflected in our Whole Class reading lessons and English lessons. We will be delving into pirate themed books to fuel our imagination to write recounts and newspaper reports. In Maths, we will begin the term by learning about fractions of lengths, shapes, sets of objects and amounts. We will then be consolidating our addition and subtraction skills.
Our School Value
Our school value this term is perseverance. Through our Collective Worships, we will be exploring what it means to persevere and understand that we can persevere with many different things in life. We might need to persevere with something that we find tricky in the classroom or learning a new skill that will help is in a sports club. It might take a short while or maybe even months to achieve the goal. At times, perseverance can be very difficult as it feels like the goal is a long way away. However, in order to succeed we must keep persevering.
"We must be determined to run the race that is ahead of us" - Hebrews 12:1
“Perseverance is failing 19 times and succeeding the 20th.” – Julie Andrews.
