Hedgehogs Class

Welcome from Mrs Marshall, Mrs Foster, Mrs Lovell and all of the reception and Year 1 children of Hedgehogs class.

Settling in to School Life!

The new Hedgehog children are all settling down to the new routines of the class and making new friends.
There have been lots of great opportunities for them to play and learn, both inside and outside of the classroom.

Hedgehog Maths

In the Hedgehog class we don’t just do maths inside, it often spills out into out garden.  The Year 1 children were writing number lines counting in tens.  The reception children were ordering the cones to 10.


The Hedgehogs are having PE lessons with Mr Brewer, who is teaching them different types of ball skills. The children have been learning how to roll, throw, catch and collect different types of balls. The children are learning how to get ready to catch a ball and they play many exciting games too!

Growth Mind Set

At the Bythams Primary School we believe in a creative curriculum to engage the children. As part of this we are encouraging the children to develop a ‘Growth Mind set’. This is when children keep on trying to develop and improve, learning how they learn best and thinking about what they need to do next.

This website link to CBeebies explains the idea of a growth mind set really clearly have a look at how this really encourages children to think and learn. Growth Mind set link.
