Croeso i’r Ddosbarth Draenogod!
Welcome to the Hedgehogs’ Class!

Welcome back to what promises to be a busy and fun-filled Spring term, with lots of exciting learning activities to explore linked to our new topics.

What a busy term we are going to have, as we begin our topics by researching and learning about Wild and Wonderful Wales and the Digestive System, with a ‘Dazzle day’ to Techniquest to take part in the interactive ‘Yucky You’ workshop. The children have already got lots of ideas they would like to explore, which are displayed on our class EPIC board.

Please remember to follow our class blog to find out more about our exciting learning adventures.

If you have any concerns regarding how your child is settling in, please don’t hesitate in contacting me.

General Information

Literacy, Language & Communication


We follow the Read Write Inc (RWI) spelling scheme that supports your child when learning to read, write and spell words.

Spelling words will be sent home every Monday, with a test on the following Monday.

Practise your words at home using some ideas from the Spelling Menu below. 


Oxford Reading Tree (ORT) staged books will be sent home every Friday. Please can you ensure your child’s reading book and reading diary are returned to school by the following Wednesday.

Comments recorded in your child’s reading diary are important and help us to support you with helping your child’s reading development at home as well as in school. We hear children read throughout the week, either as part of a guided reading group or individually.

Please note, only books that have been returned, will be changed.

Mathematics & Numeracy

Your child will have homework allocated to them via the Active Learn website every Friday.

They have already been issued with a log in and password so that they can access the portal at home. If your child requires new log in information, please get in touch.

We will continue to focus on timestables throughout the year with Timestable Speed activities. The children are encouraged to practise their timestables at home also using Times Table Rockstars.
