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 A Sense of Place.

We will start the term by reading and exploring ‘The Invisible’ by Tom Percival.  We will think about the issues and ideas arising from this beautifully written and illustrated picture book and we will be using it to inspire our first piece of writing.  We will then be developing our narrative writing further using a short film called ‘Origins’ to inspire us.  After half term, our writing will be information and instruction texts using our History and Geography topics of The Maya Civilisation and Mexico as a starting point.

We will be working on building friendships as our RSHE focus during the first half term.  This will culminate in our class residential trip to Kilve, where the class will really get a chance to bond as a group.

In Badger Class this year, we are lucky enough to have the support of our fabulous learning support assistants, Mrs Archer and Miss Jones. They are a great help to us all!

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