Welcome back!

I hope you have had a wonderful summer break.  We have all experienced a very enjoyable and productive first day back at school.  We shared the highlights from our holidays in a circle time session at the start of the day before doing a class quiz. We also used practical apparatus and whiteboards to explore place value in maths and wrote recounts of our holidays.  

 We were excited to have a special assembly on the school field where the new outdoor cabin was revealed. Who will we find behind the door?  Bilbo Baggins?  Hansel and Gretel?  Little Red Riding Hood?  We cannot wait to find out!

 In the afternoon we discussed ideas for our new topic'Come Dine With Me' and learned a song which we performed to Mrs Shepperson and Mrs Bird and which we hope to share in assembly next week.  

A letter will follow this Friday about Forest Schools - we cannot wait to get started! Homework will be set from next Thursday.  (Homework is always collected on Tuesdays).  PE is on Mondays and Thursdays.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.


It has been an absolute pleasure to teach Badger Class this year.  Thank you so much for your kind support.  Have a wonderful summer holiday!

I hope you had a lovely Christmas.  We have enjoyed our first two days back at school.  The children have written about their holiday highlights, have read and answered comprehension questions, have discussed the questions they would like to research during our new topic and have done lots of work on telling the time using digital and analogue clocks.  Next week we are looking forward to an epiphany church service where the children can wear their homemade crowns and are looking forward to Forest School on Friday.
