Picture 1

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 Autumn term is 'World War 2'. We will have a busy term developing and deepening  our knowledge and understanding of the second World War through a variety of cross-curricular activities. Literacy work will focus on diary writing based on 'Rose Blanche' and writing flashbacks linked to a video clip, 'The Piano',  Additionally, we will be writing instructions and a recount following our trip to the Imperial War Museum and Lowry exhibition.  Our class reader - Once by Morris Gleitzman - will supplement our own personal reading of WW2 children's fiction.  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 / 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

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