Reception – Badgers

We are called 'Busy Bees' in Badgers Classroom! We are a large group of Reception children and we love to learn! We are always busy - that's why we are called 'Busy Bees'.

Reading Books

Next week, your child will be bringing their first reading book home in their book bag. Every child begins their reading journey on colour band 'Red'.

We ask you to read with your child as much as possible at home as this really enables them to make the progress that they deserve. The more your child reads at home, the more likely it is that they will move their way through the colour bands.

Please note your child's reading book bag needs to be in school EVERYDAY. We will be changing reading books every Tuesday and Friday. It is very important that you sign and comment in your child's reading diary - we WONT be able to change their book if this isn't done. Signing and commenting in your child's reading diary enables us to keep a track of what they are reading at home.



In Reception we will be doing PE every Friday. Please ensure that your child has a full PE Kit in school at all times. They will be sent home each half term to be washed. Please ensure that any jewellery is removed on PE days.  



We have only just started school and we are doing so well! At the moment we are working on finding where everything is in the classroom. We are learning where a 'peg' is and where our 'tray' is as well making lots of new friends!

Very soon you will be finding out all about our learning once our journey has begun.....
