Badgers (Yr5/6)

Welcome to Badger’s class page.

We are a mixed Year 5 and 6 class. Mrs Thomas teaches us on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, whilst Mrs Tickner teaches us on Thursday and Friday.  Miss Thwaites teaches us science on Wednesday afternoons.  There are 26 children in Badgers and we are having a fantastic year together.



Our topic for the Summer Term is 'Mission to Space and Liverpool'. In science, we will be studying space, looking at the movement of the Earth and Moon and developing our knowledge on Electricity and Light.  Some of our written literacy work will be linked to our scientific studies as we will be writing explanations describing scientific processes. Our class reader will be 'Cosmic' by Frank Cottrell-Boyce through which we will develop our understanding of characters and exploring dilemmas that arise within this text.  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. 



P.E. will be on Tuesdays and Fridays.  Our Tuesday sessions will be lead by a coach from All Stars Cumbria Cricket whilst on Fridays we will be working with the team from Action Ants.

On Tuesday and Fridays please come to school in complete outdoor P.E. kit - 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 / arithmetic grids) and spellings, will be given each week.

Spelling will be set on a Thursday for the following Wednesday. This will be set on Google Classroom.

Maths will be set on Fridays. 

We should all be reading and recording what we have read 4 times a week.  This will enable us to be entered into the Reading Raffle.  Reading logs will be checked weekly.  When we have finished our reading book, we will complete a book quiz or an activity linked to the book to demonstrate our understanding.

Talk for Writing is usually set on a Monday and will be linked to literacy work completed in school.

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.  Again this will be set on Google Classroom.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask Mrs Thomas or Mrs Tickner.

During an amazing visit from Zoobidoo, Badgers class were able to show off their knowledge of classification.  They thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to meet some a variety of amazing creatures.  They were all very well behaved (including the children).
