Hedgehogs

Welcome to Hedgehogs class

Teacher – Sam
TAs – Emily, Jade and Louie

We are 11 pupils ranging from year 3 to year 6, who are always enthusiastic and happy, we follow the extended impacts curriculum, which helps us learn through fun and engaging activities.

In Hedgehogs class we follow the Nurture ethos of home from home, in the morning we have breakfast around the dining table, where we are encouraged to talk about our weekend or evening. Then in the afternoon we have snack and would therefore ask that you could please provide a daily snack. Snack time is again a social event, where each member of Hedgehogs has a task such as laying the table or washing up, this is to promote independence and confidence. Each morning and afternoon we say hello to everyone and give the adults either a handshake, high five or hug depending on what we have requested and say how we are feeling today (Photo below: inside out feeling chart).

We enjoy attention autism sessions where we watch some exciting things taking place for example magic milk tricks, painting and our favourite shaving foam worms. (Photo below: Sam and Emily making a splat and roll picture with paint and different types of sensory balls). We also enjoy participating in yoga and gong therapy, which helps us regulate and calm ready for learning. Each week a member of the class will be star of the week and this is achieved by climbing to the top of are reward clouds (photo below: toy story reward chart). However, we also have superhero points where we are rewarded daily for all our hard work throughout the day with reward time.
