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 24 children in Badgers and we are having a fantastic year together.
Our topic for the Summer Term is 'Keen to be Green' and a mini-history topic on the 'Ancient Mayans'. We will be developing our scientific knowledge and our environmental skills through our 'keen to be Green' topic and will be reading and writing explanations, persuasive writing and character descriptions.Our reading will be based on books by Michael Morpurgo and we will be comparing two texts by the same author. 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.
As we currently are learning from home, we will be trialling some online PE activities like Joe Wicks, Cosmic Yoga, Just Dance and Wake Up, Shake Up activities.
(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 / arithmetic) and spellings, will be given each week.
Spelling will be set on a Thursday for the following Wednesday.
Maths will be set on Fridays.
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 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.)
