Hedgehog Class (Year 1)
Welcome to Hedgehog Class 2017-18
- Mrs Saunders: Class Teacher
- Mrs Habgood: Teaching Assistant (mornings)
- Mrs de Carne Parsons: Teaching Assistant (afternoons)
Morning Routine: Please help your child to develop independence coming into school. Children should come in to school by themselves, put away their own coats and bookbags, fill their water bottle for the day, and change their own reading book. They are then able to get on with their early work, ready for the register at 8.55am.
Illness: If your child is unwell please contact the school office promptly on the first morning of their absence. It is helpful if you can let us know why your child is absent from school. If your child has been unwell, please do not send them to school until they have been well for 24 hours. For sickness or diarrhoea please keep your child off school for 48 hours after the last bout of vomiting or diarrhoea. These precautions help your child get the best out of school and prevent infections spreading to other children.
PE Lessons: Hedgehog Class has PE lessons on Monday and Tuesday. They will need their full PE kit in school on these days. Children need a pair of shorts and t-shirt for gymnastics as well as jogging bottoms, a sweatshirt and trainers for games when the weather is colder. We advise that PE kits stay in school at all times and will send them home to be washed during the holidays.
End of the Day: If your child is going to be collected from school by someone other than a parent, please let one of the staff know, either in person, by phoning the office, or by writing us a note. If someone else regularly collects your child, please let us know in writing and we will keep a note of the arrangement.
Classroom Volunteers: We always appreciate extra help in the classroom, whether it is a regular commitment or occasional help when you are able. We particularly require help with changing library books and maths games on a weekly basis. Occasionally we need volunteers to help on trips, and local visits. If you are interested in helping please let Mrs Saunders know. All volunteers require a Disclosure and Barring Scheme check.
