Badgers

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. 

PE Sessions

 

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. 

Curriculum Overview

 

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. 

Parent Overview

 

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. 

Over the last few days Badger class have been enjoying their new storytelling unit based on a stone age story called The Fort. We have created story maps, stepped out the story, emphasised with the characters through a diary entry and also created our own stone age forts. Have a look at the pictures below to see our creations.
We have loved creating our island and shipwrecked themed book corning. We have enjoyed spending time reading in our new quiet space and cannot wait to keep using it. 

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.

We really enjoyed World Book Day and loved dressing up as our favourite characters. Some of us came as Harry Potter, Hermione, Alice in wonderland, Mary Poppins and much more. We made bookmarks, completed a World Book Day quiz, listened to lots of our teachers read us their favourite stories and read books to some of the year one children. We cannot wait for World Book Day next year!
We are so excited to have started our trumpet lessons. We have learnt all about the different parts of a trumpet and the different type of brass instruments. We have been practising our 'buzz' noise so that we can play the trumpets properly and learnt all about the different signs used to command an orchestra. We cannot wait to develop our trumpet playing skills.
We really enjoyed spending time creating mothers day cards for our mums, grandmas and other people that we really care about. We wrote our own special message inside and Miss Hancock and Miss Barr helped us to create flowers to go on to the front. We were really pleased with how they turned out!
