Badgers (Yr5/6)

Welcome to Badgers,


We have 16 children in Badgers and we are a mixed Year 5 and 6 Class. Ms Malin is our class teacher throughout the week. We also have Miss Smith supporting throughout the week, as well as Miss Tickner from Monday to Wednesday. On Thursday and Friday, Mrs Daley also supports with interventions.

We also have Mrs Tickner to teach us French on a Friday afternoon.

This year, Badgers have created the above slogan/motto to express the importance of working as a team in order to succeed. Team work and positive communication is something that we will focus on throughout this year.


In Badgers, the children are being encouraged to set a positive example to the rest of the school as they are now the oldest class and the younger pupils will always look up to them. 


Spring Term Topic

This term our topic is 'Ancient Greeks' and 'Fit for Life'.  Please have a look at the topic plan in order to understand what areas will be covered.



P.E. until the February half term holidays will be on Tuesdays and Fridays.  Our Tuesday session will be swimming lessons at Penrith Leisure Centre and during our Friday lessons we will be working with Lee from Action Ants.

Reading- Set daily. Read every day at home for 5 - 10 minutes.  It is still very important to read to an adult at least four times a week. 

When you read, complete your reading record. This must fill all sections of the reading record (date, page number, book title and what was read).  Each week reading records will be checked on a Friday, though Reading Records must be brought into school daily. If you have four entries or more in your reading record, you to be entered into the 'Reading Raffle' giving you the chance to win a lovely book of your choice.
