Welcome to The Badgers’ Class Page!
Forest School Dates
Thursday 23rd November
Thursday 7th December
After a successful Term 1 learning about Spies through our class novel, ‘Stormbreaker’ by Anthony Horowitz, we are now busy focusing on our topic for Term 2 - World War 2.
We are learning about different aspects of WW2 within many subjects across the curriculum, with the final aim of turning our classroom into a War Museum!
Our focused text this term is ‘Goodnight Mr Tom’ by Michelle Magorian. We have already learned a lot about being an evacuee and have written diary entries and letters imagining what life would have been like for people in 1939. We are fortunate enough to welcome in to school, a visitor that experienced World War 2 first hand and are excited about asking her lots of questions. We are also going on a school trip in early December, where we will experience the challenges faced by children that were evacuated from their homes. Photos to follow….!
With the SATs around the corner, we have been busy practising skills learned in previous years, as well as learning new topics such as algebra, pie charts and many, many calculations involving fractions and percentages!
Our Science topic this term is Electricity. We have already learned about different types of renewable and non-renewable energy sources, have built solar powered robots and are now designing games for our friends in Year R that require electrical circuits to work.
As previously mentioned, our World War 2 topic features in many subjects learned across the curriculum. We have studied and designed propaganda posters, built dioramas depicting Anderson shelters and battlefields, constructed our own shelters in our Forest School sessions and learned songs popular during the Second World War.
