Y6- Badger Class

Welcome to Year 6 / Badger Class! 

Class Teacher - Miss Beckett

Teaching Assistant - Mrs Forbes 




Here we are in term 2 - the Christmas term! This will be a busy term as we have lots to look forward to such as: a trip to Kearsney Abbey, an author talk in Folkestone and finishing off with two weeks of Christmas jumpers. 



Could I ask that the children read once daily and have their reading record signed by whomever listens to them. I also ask that your child practices their spellings each week. They will be tested on a Friday. 

Additional targeted work maybe sent home as and when it is felt they need extra practice. 


Thank you for your continued support. If you need anything please feel free to speak to us in the playground or email. 


Miss Beckett and Mrs Forbes :)
