Hedgehog Class

Welcome to Hedgehog Class

Hedgehog Class is a happy space where children can explore, create and thrive.  We take risks and learn from our mistakes.  We respect each other and show pride in our achievements and the achievements of everyone we learn with. Our classroom is a warm and inviting space and we plan our learning and activities based on the children's interests and ideas.  We truly value outdoor learning and have our very own Forest School space to enjoy weekly sessions. Most of all, we truly enjoy learning together.  As one member of our class said, 'we aren't just friends in Hedgehog Class, we are like a family.'

Forest School Fun

Box Day

We enjoyed reading the book, ‘Not a Box’ and finished our first half-term with a Box Day! We made trains, cars, shelters, beds and surfboards. We found out that some ways of joining materials work better and we persevered with our designs to bring our ideas to life! 

Peace Is In Our Hands


Hedgehog Class marked Remembrance Day in many ways. We had thought provoking chats and the children were concerned and empathetic for all those who sacrificed for our freedom.  We found out that many animals also sacrificed for our freedom.
