Badger Class Y1

Welcome to Badger class!

Welcome to Badger class, Year 1! We hope you have had a great summer and are very excited for the year ahead.

Our class teachers are Mrs Mitchell and Mrs Brown and our teaching assistants are Mrs Balsom and Mrs West.

Recognising numbers to 10, written as numerals and words

This week in English, we have been looking at the story 'Rosie's walk'. The children worked hard to learn the story, with some brilliant actions and they were able to sequence it correctly. We worked together in groups to think of different questions that we would like to ask Rosie and the Fox, before 'hot-seating' the characters. Well done to those children who volunteered to play the part of Rosie and the Fox, whilst the rest of the class asked them lots of interesting questions!

We have been using play-doh and joining in with 'dough-disco' to improve our fine motor skills!

Wednesday of this week was 'Roald Dahl day'. We talked about some of our favourite books and films, before reading the story of the 'Enormous Crocodile' together. The children loved using their knowledge of numbers to 20 to cut out and make different amounts of crocodile teeth. We also used different shapes to try and create our very own crocodile and even watched a short animation of the story. The children worked well independently to complete some 'Willy Wonka' sums and built towers of 'sweets', using number cards to 20 and unifix cubes. 

We really enjoyed our activities linked to Roald Dahl day!

For the children who would like a little bit of extra practise at home, here is the link to our current Wake and Shake song.


Have fun dancing!




We have had a brilliant first week back in Badger class. Everyone has settled in so well and we have been really impressed with the children for remembering all of their new table places and new groups. Throughout the week, the children have enjoyed sharing their favourite stories with each other and acting out the story of The Enormous Turnip! We have also been working hard to read, write and count  numbers from 0-20. Well done Badgers, have a lovely weekend! 

Our first week!
