# Badgers

**Welcome to Badgers' Class!**

We are a small, friendly mixed Year 1 and Year 2 class who are lucky enough to have 2 class teachers, Mrs Dimmick and Mrs Wilson. Mrs Dimmick teaches at the beginning of the week on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and Mrs Wilson teaches at the end of the week on Thursday and Friday. We meet each week to chat about the children and their learning, plan our teaching and organise our weekly, class activities.

We also are very fortunate to have Miss Snape and Mrs Saberton who work with us. Miss Snape is our full time teaching assistant who supports the children with their learning every day. Mrs Saberton is a trained Emotional literacy support assistant and trained in speech and language. She works very closely with different children at different parts of the week.

Mrs Dimmick enjoys Maths. She is the Maths leader across the school and outside of school enjoys baking. Mrs Williams is the Science leader across the school and enjoys sport. She runs a weekly sports club at school.

Every Friday a child has the opportunity to take a home a 'special' letter saying 'It's my week!' This means that the child can bring 5 items, photos and/or toys into school that are 'special' to them, to share with the rest of the class.The class then get the opportunity to ask questions about the special 'items' - which is all very exciting as well as very interesting!

We also have a class bear "Sprinkles" who enjoys going home with the children. He loves to go on adventures and we encourage children to record what they do with Sprinkles at home over the course of a week before bringing him back to school so that we can share what he has been up to!
