Medium Term Overview
Welcome to Badger Class!
Badger class is taught by Miss Houghton (Mon-Tues) and Mrs Gale (Wed-Fri).
Teaching support is provided by Mrs Whitfield and Miss Wordsworth.
We strongly recommend parents have both the school app for parents and access to Seesaw - and regularly check these for information and updates. Please feel free to contact us with any queries:
We have PE on a Tuesday and (on those half-terms where we don't have Forest School) a Friday too. Please ensure that suitable PE kit is worn coming into school and that any earrings are taped/covered/removed on these days for safety reasons.
We have Forest School for two half term blocks. On these days, children will need to bring a warm and waterproof coat, wellies, waterproof trousers/mudsuits.
As well as individual - class specific - weekly awards, the whole school uses Class Dojo. Dojo is a points system that allows us to reward effort, consistency, demonstration of our core values, growth mindset and kindness. As well as collecting points individually, the children are also collecting points for their allocated School House. The House with the most points at the end of the year will win the House Cup.

- Try to read with your child as many times a week as is possible and please note this down in their reading record. Reading is paramount for this age group and little and often at home really can make a huge impact.
- Practice KIRF targets. Whilst we provide opportunities to practice in the week, it is incredibly important that our learners secure their knowledge of Key Instant Recall Facts in maths through home practice also. Ideas of ways to do this are on the KIRFs page.
- Practice spellings - these are reviewed and tested each week.
- Complete the optional creative challenges offered over Seesaw.
Please do talk to us if there are any issues with completing homework and we will try our best to help. For more support and explanation of our home learning policy, please see the parents section of the website and view the school's KIRFs and home learning video guide.
