Welcome to Hedgehog Class
Welcome to Hedgehog Class. We are Year 2 children (6-7 years). There are 12 children in our class and our teacher is Mrs Robson. We are taught in a ‘pod’ with Rabbit Class (Year 1) so we also work with Miss Smith and Mrs Woodhead.
We are in our final year in Key Stage 1 and are looking forward to the challenges ahead. We usually have the Year 2 SATs during the month of May, however, they have been cancelled for 2021.

Autumn Term 1
During the first two weeks of this half term, we will be reading ‘Greta and the Giants’ in our English lessons. We will use this text as a stimulus for our writing tasks. This text is based on Greta Thundberg and introduces children to the problems caused by deforestation and climate change in an age-appropriate way.
In maths, we will be looking at Place Value.
Our Science Topic this half term is ‘What do Living Things Need to Survive?’ We will be investigating how to keep our bodies healthy and understand that humans have offspring that grow into adults. We will also look at the different habitats of plants and animals and how these support their needs. In addition, we will investigate food chains and begin o describe a simple food chain. Finally, we will discuss the four seasons and how daylight differs between the seasons.
In our Geography lessons we are investigating: ‘How has our town changed over the years?’ To answer this question, we will look at the key physical and human features of our local area now and in the past.
In PE we are developing our skills with games. We will be developing out running, jumpimg, throwing, catching and attacking and defending skills.
