Heather Avenue

Infant School


Welcome to Badgers Class!

Our topic for the Spring term is 'To Infinity and Beyond!'

We will be learning all about space! We will be exploring what space looks like, including learning about different planets and the other things we would see in space as well as learning about people who have been to space. We will create our own space adventures, thinking about what we would need to go to space and how we would get there! Parents / carers will receive a topic web at the beginning of the term to share all the exciting space activities we will be doing!

Later in the term we will have our International Week, which will be focusing on Egypt. We will be looking at similarities and differences between cultures, including schools, homes, animals, landscapes, food and music.

Please keep looking at Tapestry to see photos of our work. Please add your own observations onto Tapestry if your child has completed some learning with you at home which you would like to share. We look forward to sharing our work with you through the Spring Term!

We have PE every Tuesday and Thursday. Please ensure that your child comes to school in their PE kit on a Tuesday and Thursday. Please also ensure that your child has spare clothing in their bags in case of any toilet accidents - These should be kept in school.  
Please ensure earrings are removed on these days and that your child's hair is tied back.


We do cooking on a Tuesday. Please ensure that your child has a labelled container in school each Monday so that they can take their delicious treats home.


Please read with your child at least three times a week and record this in their reading record. Children should be encouraged to use their phonic knowledge to segment and blend words when reading new words for the first time. 
Please also encourage your child to use Reading Eggs and Letterjoin to support their reading and writing skills. We would recommend this is done on a weekly basis.
