Welcome back everyone, it's so great to see everyone after such a long break. I'm sure we will have lots of fun in the coming school year. Please check back regularly to see updates.
Many Thanks Miss Goodall and Mrs Buckley
Happy Summer Holidays....
I hope that everyone has a fabulous time.. whatever you are doing and wherever you spend your days. Have lots of fun and laughs and if you get bored you can always dip into some of the activities in the folders on our class page.
Don't forget to keep reading and maybe keep a diary or write a story about a well known fairy tale character.
Stay safe and see you in September
Good news... I will now be in school when you visit on Wednesday... The court had enough jurors without me so I am really looking forward to seeing you all and I know Mrs Buckley is as well.
Good morning Everyone

Welcome to Monday morning and to our new Wolves class members (who are Years 3 and 4 at the moment).
Please be aware that you will need to check the maths answers correspond with the work completed, thank you.
Good afternoon Badgers Class
We've had a fun afternoon in school with the DT unit.... Have a go yourselves find all the information you need in the Home Learning page - it's on the grid.

It's been great hearing how many of you have been working hard on your home learning tasks. I've been sent slmearlier photos and some examples of work you've completed and heard about the Headteachers awards you've earnt.
Keep trying your best and don't forget to enjoy some outside activities every day.
I'm sure we'll all be back soon from Miss Goodall
I know how much you all like a challenge and to write in a creative manner. So when Miss CLark sent an email with a writing competition on it I just knew you would all love to have a go - so here is the link with all the information you need
Sadly I'm not allowed to enter but imagine how great it would be if you won.... Good Luck Miss Goodall
Hello from sunny Folkestone.....
I hope you have all enjoyed bread tasting for DT this afternoon, I had a sandwich with some very nice tiger bread and carried out the bread tasting task before I made the sandwich.
Don't forget to ask your adult to get you the ingredients you will need when they go shopping if you would like to make the bread you've designed next week.
Have a great Bank holiday and don't forget to put out the bunting from Miss Goodall
Good morning Badgers
I hope you are all well and continuing to be Superheroes.... I know a tidy bedroom or a peaceful half an hour are always appreciated by your parents so if you can manage either of these you will be amazing.
I have been crafting in my spare time... I've been making Christmas cards 😀 because they are keeping me busy and focused on nice times I'm going to have in the future with my family and friends and you all. Perhaps you could make a list of the nice things you are going to enjoy once we are all back to normal.
Keep smiling and be kind Miss Goodall
Good morning to you all.... It's another glorious day to start the week. I hope you've all been keeping busy and finding time to enjoy activities in the garden.
I have some photos of James ⛵ building and know Alissa has been 🏕️ at home, please keep sending in examples of your work or photos it's always great to see what you've accomplished and I can add some to our photo gallery. Head there to see what your friends have been doing.
So whatever you are doing - hopefully including your home learning tasks - stay safe, 🐝 helpful and have fun. We'll be back at school before long Miss Goodall
I hope that you have had a great break , that you didn't eat too much chocolate and enjoyed the sunshine in your garden. I certainly did; lots of gardening and fence painting.
I've planned lots of interesting activities for you to complete next week so don't forget to send in any examples of your work to Mrs Freeman at firstname.lastname@example.org so that I can enjoy looking at them and then add them to the class page.
Hello Badger's parents...
Here are some questions you could ask your child whilst reading with them
* What did the character look like? Can you draw a picture of them in your orange book?
* How did you think the story should have ended? Can you write a different ending in your book?
* Who would you like to meet most from the story? Explain why.
*Why did the author choose this title?
* If you were going to interview the main character what questions would you ask them? Write these in your book.
Look out for more questions after Easter.
Tuesday, hello to you all... Which of the PE tasks have you managed to do? How many star jumps did you manage in the time limit? Could you challenge a family member to see if they could beat your total? I'm going to try it myself in the garden let you know how many I did tomorrow. Why don't you email and let me know if you beat me.
I've also helped the Guardians of Mathmatica.... You can find the link in the maths section, it was challenging but fun and you will definitely need a pencil and paper to help you work out some answers. Give it a go yourself.... And may be have a brave helper by your side for the really tricky questions.
Challenge for the Easter holiday.... Create a design for our class book corner.... We will then vote as a class on the one we like the best then use it to change our book corner once we are back at school. Remember to label your design clearly with the items you would like to be in there and write a short piece telling us why your design should be chosen. Draw in your Orange book to keep it safe.
Have a great day and enjoy your Easter eggs..... You know I will
Good Monday morning Badgers....
I hope you are all well and trying hard with your new timetable... Please remember that you only need to try your best, if you don't have the equipment to complete a task or are finding it to difficult find an activity at home to do instead. Then send a photo in so that we can all see what you have been doing.
Most of all don't get upset or stressed about what you can't do, just take pride in what you can.
And remember to record it in your Orange book to bring in and show me and Mrs Buckley when we're all back in school again, as we'll all have lots to share....
Good Afternoon Badgers
I just wanted to share something that happened this morning... it snowed, great big fluffy flakes. Only for a short while but it was beautiful and very exciting as I love the snow.
If you notice anything special happening email in and I'll start a class diary of exciting events.
If you're bored find a game all the family can play together or make a game from recycled materials like we did for homework.
Good morning Badgers
I hope you are all working hard.... Don't forget your parents can give you Reward points, just colour in your 100 grid to record them.
I have also refunded all the fines you may have received on TT rock stars.... Remember better to be a bit slower in your time but more accurate with your answers..... Then no fines.
Have a great day, enjoy the sunshine and be good to each other and don't forget to email in ay work you get a Reward point for so that we can all share it.
Hello Again Badgers
It is Wednesday morning and I hope that you all had fun finishing your Pencil cases yesterday... I would love to see some of the finished ones - Tullula and I finished hers at school yesterday. So if you can get someone to take a photo of you with yours I would like to put these up on our class web page. Send them to Mrs Freeman at the school office and she will pass them on.
Good Morning Badgers
I hope that you are enjoying the sunshine in your gardens and completing your Homework task.
Miss Wren will be emailing your home learning tasks to your parents, please complete as many as you can in your Orange book.
The time for Parent Pop in has changed from 2.30pm start to 3pm and will now finish at 3.30pm as we will not be finished with our History workshops until 3pm.
See newsletter for more details.
Thanks you all for sorting sleeping bags and blankets.... watch this space for photographs showing us during our Literacy session.
We are reading a text about camping in a garden and thought it would be a great idea if we bought sleeping bags into school tomorrow (Thursday 14th November 2019) so that we could pretend we were actually camping in the classroom, so that we can gather ideas for our suspense story.
If you have a sleeping bag please bring it in and a torch if you have one.
This is a great game to play as a family. Play on a 3x3 grid (extend to 4x4 if needed) and put into it a common spelling pattern such as ough (see below), ask your child to build as many words as they can within the time limit using the available letters. You may need to remind them that they can only use each letter once in each word (more if it’s repeated in the grid).
We have sent home the Statutory spelling list for Years 3 and 4, please help your child learn these.
Here is our recommended method for this week...
Look. say, cover, write check.
This method works as it is a multi-sensory approach, using sight, sound and touch: research shows that the more senses a child involves in their learning, the better the outcome.
Encourage your child to start with a list of 10 words(or less)
This is most effective if repeated every day for a week before choosing another 10 words.
At the start of the new year we'd like to welcome you to our class web page. Here are a few things we would like to remind you of:
We aim to have high expectations for learning in Badgers and hope that you will join us on this exciting journey, many thanks Miss Goodall and Mrs Buckley.
