This is the web page for Badger Class which will be updated with lots of news about what we have been doing as well as useful information for parents and carers.The class teachers in Badger Class are Ms Grace and Miss McGaw and our teaching assistant is Miss Campbell.
The children in Badger Class will have PE on Tuesday and Thursdays. PE kits should have the appropriate clothing for both indoor and outdoor PE as they will remain in school all the time. PE kits will be sent home for washing every half term. If children wear earrings they will have to be removed before coming to school on our PE days or, as an alternative, the children will have to bring their own plasters to school and be able to place them over their earrings themselves.
Water bottles should be clearly labelled with your child’s name. They will stay in school all week and then sent home on Fridays for a good clean. Please make sure they come back to school on Monday morning.
Welcome back to Badger class
Well done to all the children and their families who made badgers over the summer holiday - they look lovely in our classroom!
Win the Reading Race!
It is really important that your child reads every day. Reading is a skill like swimming or riding a bike - a little daily practice makes a world of difference. Each day we check the reading diaries to see if your child has shared a book at home. This does not have to be their school reading book, it could be a bedtime story or a comic from the supermarket. They move their car along the track and see how far they can get over the week.
Please help them to move along. Many children get to space 5, 6 or 7 by Friday - it’s hard for some children to be stuck on the starting grid!
Road Safety Day
We have had a busy day learning all about road safety. In Badger class we learnt a road safety song, built towns and drew safe places to cross, played a game with the Road Safety Team and made a board game. The board game we made was full of dangers and the children thought of ways to keep safe, such as zebra crossings, lollipop crossing patrol people and traffic lights. Thank you for such an effort with the costumes too - all the children looked amazing today.
Santa came to town!

It's Good To Talk!
We read the story The Huge Bag of Worries. We know that it is important to talk to people if we are worried about anything. Sharing your problems keeps your mind healthy!
Reading in the Badger Team
We worked in groups of three to interview and record each other, in role as a pirate. The children talked about the things they liked about pirate life, and acted a few things out. Everyone was involved - here is a small selection of three.
