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 this term is 'The Stone age to the Iron Age'. The children will be learning about everyday life and the key changes during this period. This topic will link throughout all our subjects and will enable children to create their own cave paintings.
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.
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.
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.
