Badger Class

Year 5 and 6

Welcome to Badger Class!

We are a class of hardworking and enthusiastic Year 5 and 6 children who love to learn.  We have enquiring minds and we enjoy finding out about new topics and learning new skills.  We learn through independent hard work but also lots of teamwork too.  We often try out practical applications for our learning and we are good at self-evaluating our results.

We have a thoughtful and compassionate attitude to those around us and we care about each other’s wellbeing.  We are building our independence as we head into our last years of primary school and are learning to become responsible, respectful and resilient risk-takers.

We begin each term with a new theme. This term our topic is Force of Nature.

We will be looking at ‘Children of Winter’ by Berlie Doherty.  This is a novel set at the time of The Great Plague of 1665.  This will be a stepping off point for our History topic which will explore the time of the plague alongside some other key points of medical history.  We will also be using ideas from the story to inspire our own writing.  Our Science and RSHE topics for this term are also focussing on the body and health.

In Badger Class this year, we are lucky enough to have the support of our fabulous learning support assistant, Miss Richards. She is a great help to us all!

We are looking forward to a term full of great learning and fun!
