Welcome to Badger Class!
Badger Class is our Reception class, where Mrs Smith and Mrs Hedges are the class teachers and Mrs Dyer is our teaching assistant.
This term our topic is 'All About Me'. We will be learning all about each other, what we enjoy doing and all about our families. We will also be learning new routines, class rules and school rules. Once we are all settled we will begin learning phonics, which is the sounds we need to learn to read and write. We will also enjoy sharing stories and counting lots of things using lots of different resources.
PE will be on a Tuesday, so please wear PE kit to school every Tuesday. Please ensure that trainers have velcro so they can be easily taken on and off throughout the day.
Thank you to those parents that were able to join us for our phonics training on Tuesday evening - I hope you found it useful. Please find a PDF of the powerpoint used in the training - if you have any questions, please ask.
Please label everything
Please do not bring any toys from home. They easily get lost and muddled with our own equipment and especially at the current time when we are limiting bringing things between school and home.
Please do not put water bottles in the book bags. Water bottles often leak and ruin our school reading books.
Have a look at the learning we will be doing this year by following the link below.
The children in Badger Class will now be bringing reading books home. To begin with books have no words and are used to encourage children to talk about what is happening in the pictures. We will listen to your child read at least once a week, but in order for your child to make progress in their reading, we need you to support them and listen to them read at least 5 times a week.
The children have settled really well at school and have enjoyed exploring all the different areas of the classroom, both indoors and outdoors. They have all been learning to make friends and cooperate with each other, taking turns and sharing. We are very proud of the way they have adapted to school life at St Nicholas CE (VA) Primary School.
As our topic is All About Me, we would really like to give the children the opportunity to share something they enjoy doing with the class. If you have one or two photos of your child taking part in a hobby or something that they would like to share with their friends, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and head it Badger Photo. You may like to add a little information to enable us to help your child share their photo with their class.
We have already earned our first class reward and went for a walk in our school woods.
