Welcome to Badger’s class page.
We are a mixed Year 5 and 6 class. Mrs Thomas teaches us on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, whilst Mrs Tickner teaches us on Thursday and Friday. Mrs Gill works in our class every Monday afternoon. There are 17 children in Badgers and we are having a fantastic year together.
Our topic for the Summer term is 'Mission to Space and Liverpool'. We will be very busy this term working towards our Year 6 SATS in May, developing our knowledge of the city of Liverpool for when we go on our residential in June and focusing our Summer Production towards the end of term. Literacy work will be linked to our two topics - we will be writing recounts about our trip to Liverpool, discussion and explanation writing will focus on our Mission to Space topic whilst our characterisation writing will be linked to our class reader - The Boy Who Climbed Into The Moon by David Almond. We will also be studying a range of poetry by Liverpudlian poet Roger McGough. In Numeracy we will be using the Power Maths scheme to develop our arithmetic and reasoning skills.
Please view our topic web below for further information.
This half-term, we will mainly have PE on a Monday (Action-Ants) and a Wednesday. However, there may be occasions when our weekly timetable will alter so a complete outdoor P.E. kit is required each day - white or yellow T-shirts, blue or black shorts, trainers and a tracksuit. All clothing / trainers need to be named. Please ensure long hair is tied back and earrings are removed or covered with tape.
Homework, in the form of Maths (times tables) and spellings, will be given each week.
We should all be reading and recording what we have read 4 times a week. Reading logs will be check weekly. Talk for Writing is generally set on a Tuesday and will be linked to work done in school on Wednesdays. In addition Home Learning will be set at least once every half term. The activities set in our Home Learning books will often be linked to our topic
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask Mrs Thomas or Mrs Tickner.
We hope you enjoy looking at our page and reading about what we are going to do and what we have been up to!
8th October 2018 - Badgers Trip to Carlisle Cathedral
The class were met by Cannon Michael Manley and Ruth Evans who showed us around both the outside and inside of the cathedral. We were wowed by the wonderful ceiling and we all got a great view of it as we lay on the floor to gazed up at the stars. We were shown the pulpit, lectern, alter, font, communion rail and choir stalls which brought our class RE lessons to life. We learnt that Carlisle Cathedral is the second smallest in the country and that every cathedral has to have a special chair called a 'Cathedra' for the Bishop to sit. We even found roman numerals on the clock and the choir stalls which linked into our Maths learning from last week! Thank you to Mrs Gill and Miss Tickner for taking us.
