Welcome to Badgers,
We have 18 children in Badgers and we are a mixed Year 5 and 6 Class. Mrs Douthwaite and Miss Malin are our class teacher throughout the week. We also have Miss Smith, Miss Tickner, Mrs Gill and Mrs Daley to support us. Mrs Weild teaches us RE, French and computing.
We are all different but we fit together.
This year, Badgers have created this motto to express the importance of accepting each other for who we are. As individuals we can work better as a team. Team work and positive communication is something that we will focus on throughout this year.
In Badgers, the children are being encouraged to set a positive example to the rest of the school as they are now the oldest class and the younger pupils will always look up to them.
