Welcome to the Badger’s Class.

Class Teachers: Mrs Howell and Ms McGuinness

Class TA: Mrs Hobbs

 

Our Topic for Terms 5 and 6 is The Earth, Sun and Moon

  

Reading Books

The children should each have an ongoing book which they bring into school. Reading books can be chosen from either our class or library collections or your child may prefer to choose a book from home. We recommend they try to read a variety of authors and genres over the course of the year. Please don’t forget to sign your child’s home/school book whenever they read at home. Thanks!

 

PE

PE will be on Mondays and Thursdays - please note for the first 5 weeks of term, every Friday, your child will also be having tag rugby coaching instead of Monday's PE. Please ensure your child has suitable outdoor PE kit (named) as they will be outside as much as possible for these sessions. A change of socks in their kit bag is a particularly useful addition too! Thank you.


Homework
From this term onwards, your child will be receiving both Maths and Literacy/Topic homework each week. Ms McGuinness will set homework on Tuesdays and Mrs Howell will set on Thursdays. The children have all got homework timetables to help them remember this! Please let us know if you need an extra copy.

 

Spellings/Tables

Spellings will be sent out on Monday and will be tested on Friday. Please ensure your child practises these - and their tables - regularly at home. Thank you.


Healthy snacks
Please continue to make sure all snacks/lunch boxes are healthy. The school Tuck Shop is also open during break on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

 

A quick reminder that Ms McGuinness teaches Badgers on Mon and Tues, Mrs Howell teaches them on Thurs and Fri and we alternate the Wednesdays. Thank you all, again, for your continued support in your child’s learning. Please do not hesitate to come and speak with us after school if you have any concerns or questions.
