Welcome to Hedgehog Class! We are a Year 1 Class and Mrs Bowen is your class teacher. Mrs Davies and Mrs Edwards will also be working with Hedgehog Class across the week.

If you would like to speak to me please telephone the school office or send me a message on Class Dojo. I will get back to you as soon as possible.

General Information

This week we have begun to look at castles. The children have really enjoyed looking at non-fiction books on this topic. We have talked about the names and basic jobs of the key parts of castles. The following link takes you to a matching game. The children may need some support to help them read the definitions before matching the correct label.


Squirrels and Owls are heading to Stafford Castle on Tuesday 9th of April. While Hedgehog Class will be going on Wednesday 10th. Please contact you child’s class teacher if you are able to help on these trips


We have revisited the topic of shape this week, thinking about both “2D flat” shapes and “3D fat” ones. Can you hunt around the house to find examples of squares, triangles, circles, oblongs(rectangles) and hexagons as well as cubes, cuboids, cylinders, cones, pyramids and spheres? Shape escape will help remember their names…



This week our Tricky Words have been pull and full. The following links will take you to practise songs…



Can you write 2 sentences for each word?

Don’t forget to send any pictures to us via the Dojo App
