Year 1 - Badgers

Welcome to Year 1 - Badgers

2017 - 2018


        The staff who work in Badgers class are:

                           Mrs Groucutt                          

 Mrs Keasey


    We have 23 children in Badgers class.






Your child will come home with a card folder in their book bag. Every day (except Friday) there will be a sheet with the words and sentences they have learnt in phonics. Please support them to read and spell all the words at home. For the first week, we will also include the lesson plan so you can see how we introduce the sounds, words and sentences.

We will no longer send spellings home separately.

If you need any help, please come and ask.

                                                    P.E is every Monday.

Please make sure your child has a P.E kit in school and that any jewellery is removed or covered.


Reading books

Please read with child as often as possible. They have a reading diary which you need to sign when you have read together. Every time you sign their book, your child will have a sticker to wear, a sticker on their chart and a golden book entry. Your child can change their book every day as long as you have signed their diary. Please also let me know, through the diary, if they have read other books from home or the library.







We have written our own stories about the Arctic.

We hope you enjoy reading them.

The Animal Lady came to visit us on Friday 2nd February. We had a lovely lesson and learnt all about the animals she brought for us to handle.


World Book Day

We have been learning about traditional tales in English. The story we read was Jack and the Beanstalk. We read lots of different versions of the story. The Giant left his harp in the classroom for us to play one day. We really enjoyed playing music on it.

We have been learning to follow instructions using the bee bots, craft activities and books.

It is really important to read the instructions carefully!
