Welcome to Badger Class!
Hello and welcome to Badger Class! Your children are settling in well and are enjoying being part of year three and year four. They are all working extremely hard and are trying their hardest with all of their learning. Helping your children with their learning this year is Miss Hancock as the class teacher alongside our amazing teaching assistant, Miss Barr.
On Thursday, badger class will have two PE lessons with Mr Blacker. The children have been provided with new PE tops and hooded sweatshirts which they need to come in wearing on their PE day. They will wear these all day so do not need to change into school uniform during the school day.
Our topic for the Spring term is Ancient Greece. Children will learn all about what life was like at this time and will have the opportunity to make Ancient Greek clay pots with their own patterns and designs. Through linking this topic into many of our day to day subjects children will develop a great understanding and interest in this topic.
Our topic for Autumn term was 'The Stone age to the Iron Age'. The children have learnt about everyday life and the key changes during this period. This topic was also linked throughout all our subjects and enabled children to create their own cave paintings and Stone Age axes.

Homework and Home Learning
Your children will receive regular homework throughout this year. Children will have weekly spellings to learn and times tables to practise. It would also be brilliant if you could listen to your children read at home and encourage them to read independently.
Throughout the year we will add overviews of what we are learning and what is going to be happening across each term to keep you up to date.
Keeping in touch
It is lovely to be able to meet so many of your as you drop off and pick up your children. You are always welcome to talk to us at the beginning or the end of each school day about any questions or worries or concerns you may have.
Pupil's Learning in the Autumn Term
This week in history Badgers have been pretending to be stone age people looking for stone age tools and thinking about what kinds of things they were used for during this time period. We used our stone age tools to see if you could cut open a water melon and decided what type of stone tool was best for this. Have a look at the photos below to see what we did during our history lesson.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our Autumn term in Badger class especially learning all about Prehistoric Britain. Although we are so excited for Christmas! So much so we have had an exciting and busy week creating our christmas themed products to sell at the enterprise fair. We have made handprint snowman baubles and christmas tree corner book marks. Alongside this we have made monster corner bookmarks and have created posters to advertise our stall.
Pupils Learning in the Spring Term
We have been learning about division and using our multiplication facts to help us. We had lots of resources set up around the room and different questions to answer. We had so much fun using the counting objects, number lines, dienes blocks and counters to see what division means and to solve division questions.
