Year 1 – Hedgehogs

Hello, welcome to Hedgehogs class.

We are excited to help you learn and grow this year. We will start our learning journey in the Autumn term with our history project ‘Toys Through Time’. We look forward to hearing from the children’s families about the types of toys they used to play with and how they are the same/different from ones we have now. Please see our class newsletter for more information about our learning.
