The Village Academy

The Village Academy is a group of town, city and village schools that have joined together to provide the very best education for the children in our care and where we believe that education is very much a matter of the individual.

Year 1: Hedgehogs Class

Hello all,

Welcome to Hedgehog page.



We are working on a Mr Men project. The class have been enjoying the Mr Men stories so much that this term we are going to be creating our own Mr Men book. We are focusing on handwriting, particularly the formation of letters, and spelling.


Over the next term we will be using our numbers to 100 in addition and subtraction. We will also be measuring time, money, length and weight.


We are learning about animals, including classification. We will learn how to recognise herbivores and carnivores.


Important people

The first part of this term we will be looking at Tim Peake and his time on the International Space Station. In Art and DT we are going to draw and create rockets from junk modelling.


On a Tuesday and Friday we have PE, please ensure PE kits are in school for these days.

We will be working on our balance and tactical skills in PE games.


 Miss Schembri and Mrs Usher
