Badger Class

Welcome to Badger Class

Welcome to our Class

Welcome to Badgers! Badger Class teacher is Miss Goddard.  The other adults within Badger Class are Mrs Tellwright and Miss Matthews.

This year Badger Class will explore many topics in school. In Autumn the children will learn about the countries and continents across the world from Pole to Pole. In Spring they will learn about Artists from the past, their magnificent work and interesting life. During Summer they will learn all about our wonderful earth, how it was created, the animals that live there and all about minibeasts. The children are going to have so much fun in school this year!

If you would like to speak to me please telephone the school office or message me on Class Dojo. I will get back to you as soon as possible within my working day.

General Information

Here you will find information about what is happening in Badger Class this half term e.g. events we are running, PE, Forest School, trips etc.

*School starts at 8:45am so please be ready to join us for a fun filled day!

Reading:

*Online Books and Book Bag books are issued to children on Monday –

The Online Book is the book that they will be reading in school to them to develop their early reading skills. This book can be accessed via the Oxford Owl log in that every child should have. If your child does not have this log in or has lost it please ask me for a replacement.

Each Monday, children will be allocated a new Book Bag book. This is a book that supports the RWI book that they are reading in school/online. Please keep these books safe inside your purple reading folder. We encourage the re-reading of both the Online Book and Book Bag book to help children gain a greater fluency and understanding of the book.

Reading Folders should be brought into school every day. It is hoped that parents listen to their child read at least 3 times a week – please record this within their Reading Records.

If children read additional books of their own, the sharing books, library books etc. these can be recorded within their Rocket into Reading booklet where children can gain certificates by travelling across planets. When they reach the Sun they get to choose a brand new book of their choice and this is shared with the whole school in the assemblies.

* PE kits need to be brought into school on Mondays and kept in school for regular use. For special events children may be asked to wear a T-shirt of their House Colour – this will be the same colour they represented in Year 1. If you are unsure please ask me and I can remind you of this.

*Children are required to bring a water bottle to school each day filled with only water.  If you would like to purchase a school branded bottle please visit our school office.

*School ends at 3.15 pm.

*Please let a member of staff know if someone new is due to collect your child from school.  We cannot send a child home unless we are sure it is safe to do so.

*Homework will be issued on Fridays via the school website or it will be sent home in school bags (Phonics homework).
