Welcome to Year 1 - Badgers
2017 - 2018
The staff who work in Badgers class are:
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 Wednesday.
Please make sure your child has a P.E kit in school and that any jewellery is removed or covered.
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.
Please encourage your child to log on to RM unify.

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.
We have been learning to follow instructions using the bee bots, craft activities and books.
It is really important to read the instructions carefully!
This term we have learnt the art of tie dye.
We linked this to our story focus 'Aliens Love Underpants'
The children really enjoyed deciding how to fold their pants and added elastic bands or marbles to the material.
We had a pants party at the end of the topic and we all wore our pants!
