Welcome to Badger Class!
Welcome back to Badger Class! We hope you’ve had a restful summer and have been keeping safe washing those hands! This term we are very excited to be coming back into class bubbles and making some new friends. You are very lucky in Badger Class as you will have three grown – ups working in your bubble at different times throughout the day. Your new teacher is Miss Hammond and your LSA is Mrs Pen. Mrs Fairclough will be joining us in the mornings too! We are so excited to welcome you to your new classroom and cannot wait to watch you grow and learn with us throughout the year.
Our Theme in Year 1 this half term is ‘Lost and Found’ based on a book by Oliver Jeffers. Penguin and The Boy will be joining us to rewrite an exciting version of the story to send to new Year R children!
In Maths we will be starting with number and place value. Counting to 20 and showing off with our ordering and sequencing. Towards the end of this half term we will be practicing our addition and subtraction in fun and practical ways. In the afternoons we will get our creation on and make a splash with Art, Geography, Science and PE!
In PE we are going to develop our skills in jumping and landing through a range of fun activities. In Science, we will be creating our very own longitudinal study by making our own rain catchers and observing seasonal changes such as rainfall - keep an eye out for where we decide to place ours!
After some discussion, in Badger Class we have written our Class Charter! The children thoroughly enjoyed making their own rules, and had some fantastic ideas (they must have been very well behaved for their grown-ups over the summer break!)
We’ve all agreed to follow our new rules;
- To always listen beautifully and wait patiently
- No running in the classroom
- Always be kind and help each other
- No shouting out
- Keep our hands to ourselves
