Welcome to Badgers

This week in PE we have been learning how to show symmetrical balances. Which is your favourite?


In Maths the children have been reminding themselves of the ways to make 20 and have used this knowledge to give change from £20. In Literacy the children have been learning how to write diaries. Ask your child to tell you the features of a diary.


Reminder - we are going to the Solar Farm on Thursday afternoon. Please wear long trousers or tights and bring wellies to school in a named plastic bag. Thank you.

Help in school

On Thursday 28th September the Badgers are visiting the Solar Farm near Verwood. If any parents or carers are able to help please see Miss Brown. We will be leaving at 12.40pm and returning at 3pm. Thank you.


Poems and home learning are stuck into books on a Monday morning. We would appreciate the help of a few parents who could come into school at 8.30am (ish) to help with this please. This usually takes about 15 minutes. Please see Mrs Matungamire. Thank you.

This week we have been making good use of Numicon resources to estimate and group numbers. We talked about what the word 'estimating' means and then thought about how we move the counters or pegs into groups so they could be counted easily.

Welcome to Badgers! We have loved meeting the children and making a start on our learning. This week we have been learning about the story 'Badgers Bath'. The children have started to think about new versions of the story and what adventures the characters could get up to.

In the afternoons we are starting to learn about badger facts. Ask your child what they know about badgers so far!

In maths we have learnt to count in 50s from 0 and started to learn the 4 times table by counting in 4s.


Very best wishes for a happy year in Badgers

Miss Brown and Mrs Matungamire
