Hedgehog Group 2023 - 2024

Mr Puddick

Dear Parents and Carers,


Welcome back to the Hedgehog Group, we hope you had a lovely summer break and we are excited to welcome the children back. The teacher is Mr Puddick and the teaching assistants are Miss Jade, Mx Saperia and Mr Alli.

What we are learning this half term:

In English we are going to be developing our writing by using the text 'The Bear and The Piano'. We are going to be using this text to inspire some descriptive writing, non-fiction writing and a narrative.. In Science, we will be learning about Sound and finding out about how sound is made and how it travels.  In Geography, we are going to be  focussing on 'Changes in Our Environment', answering the question: How is our country changing? In Art we will be exploring the artwork of Louise Fili and in our R.E sessions we will be learning about Sikhism.


Children will take part in weekly P.E lessons. The day your child will attend will be communicated to individual parents and carers based on transitions. Children must come to school in their PE kits (white top, black trousers/shorts/leggings and appropriate trainers). Please make sure children have the correct PE kit.


Children will be given two books a week to read at home. The first book will be matched to their reading ability.The second book will be a sharing book. This is a book the children have chosen themselves. They may not be able to read this independently however it encourages them to develop a love for reading. Children should read daily for 10 minutes. Children will be given a reading record to record when they have read to an adult at home. Please sign the reading record when you have read at home with your child or if they have read independently. 

Homework and Spellings

In Hedgehog Group, maths homework will consist of Numbots and Timestable Rockstars. English homework will be to practise phonics and spellings. Spellings are handed out on Friday. Children will also be given 10 minutes of topic homework each week which will link to our knowledge organisers. Children’s logins will be stuck into the front of their homework books.  

Please contact us if you have any questions,

Mr Puddick
