25.9.2020 Here are some photos of Badger classroom and the displays in the cloakroom. We have a star writer wall where we photocopy and display 6 pieces of children's work that we think is their absolute best. These are changed regularly and all the children get the chance to have their work on display. They also get TWO stickers for their chart!

Badger Class and Fox Cubs Classes are having a competition to see who can grow the tallest garlic plant. Today Poppy, Niko, Jacob and Patryk planted giant garlic bulbs in the planters outside in the playground with Mrs Smith and Mrs Orrey.

Today Mrs Orrey demonstrated how to make chocolate crispy cakes.

We took photos and ordered them in our English book to help us write instructions.

We all had a chocolate crispy cake during afternoon play.

Thank you to parents who have already signed up to our class 'Seesaw' page.

Seesaw is a great way to keep in touch and for parents/carers to see what the children have been doing in class.

If you have not yet signed up and would like another 'How to' letter please ask myself or Mrs Orrey and we can sort one out for you.

The autumn term curriculum newsletter for Y2.

Hello and welcome to Badger Class 2020.


We understand that it may have been a very difficult time for many families and the children will have had very different experiences over the past weeks. We will, of course, be continuing with lessons BUT for the first days (at least) we will also be concentrating on settling the children in, getting used to new routines, catching up with friends and ensuring a really positive start to Y2.


Due to Covid restrictions  we will not be holding any face to face discussions with parents, however, if you need to speak to me or Mrs Orrey please contact the school to arrange a time for a telephone 'meeting'.


There will be a Y2 newsletter soon - but these are just a few reminders for Badger Class.

PE - Thursday and Friday (weather permitting as all lessons will be held outside)

Your child will need PE kit AND shoes appropriate for outdoor PE - shorts, T-shirt, joggers and a long-sleeved top with plimsolls or trainers (if they bring trainers they MUST be able to get them on and off independently - tying their own laces, please).

Spelling tests - Tuesdays


Please note that we will no longer be having Golden time every Friday for half an hour - BUT it will be replaced by a 'Golden afternoon' at the end of each term. Children will be able to use toys and equipment in school but WILL NOT be allowed to bring in toys from home - due to Covid 19.


We are really looking forward to welcoming you back to our Hawthorn Tree family on Thursday.

Mrs Herring and Mrs Orrey
