Badgers (Yr5/6)

Welcome to Badger’s page. We are a mixed year 5 and 6 class. Mr Mason teaches the majority of the time; Mrs Tickner teaches the class on Wednesday afternoons. The teachers are helped by their assistants, Miss Auty and Mrs Pinkerton. There are 20 children in Badgers and they realise that good learning is the result of listening carefully, trying their best and having fun. We are all looking forward to having a fantastic year together.

 

Our topic for the Spring term is Ancient Greeks. This will form the basis for much of our creative work. The Harry Potter series will form the basis for much of our literacy work.

 

P.E

This half-term, we will mainly have PE on a Monday (Action-ants) and a Wednesday (swimming). However, there may be occasions when we will run a mile to ensure high fitness levels. Therefore, complete outdoor P.E. kit is required each day - white or yellow T-shirts, blue or black shorts, trainers and a tracksuit. Please ensure long hair is tied back and earrings are removed or covered with tape.

 

Homework

Homework, in the form of literacy, maths and spellings, will be given each week. Each piece should take around 20 minutes, although some children often spend longer due to their enjoyment of creating a detailed piece of work. Homework will be given out on a Monday and expected to be handed in by Friday at the latest.

Children are instructed to read every night and record it in their reading logs. They should aim to write at least 3 comments a week. Reading logs are to be handed in every Friday morning to be checked by Mr Mason and team points will be given for detailed comments.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask Mr Mason.

Badgers class were given the remit of creating either creation story in plasticine to represent each 'day'. They did this totally independently and were really 'creative'! See what you think ...
