Welcome to Badger Class!
Badger class is taught by Miss O'Kane. Mrs Feddon is a HLTA in Badger Class.
Autumn Term 2019
This term our topic is the Vikings. We will be learning how people from other societies have been coming to Britain for a long time. We will explore bow Viking influences spread through different parts of the world and how, over a period of years, the Vikings eventually came to settle in Britain. Through this unit we will develop our understanding of chronology, describe and identify the reasons for- and results of- historical events and consider the different ways the past can be interpreted. A knowledge organiser with key information and vocabulary will be shared to support learning at home. This topic is always hugely exciting and motivating and there are a number of excellent high quality texts that can support it. Any body wishing to be signposted towards additional reading, should inquire at school for advice.
Our topic in science for this term is Light and Electricity. We will be exploring shadows and the movement of the sun through the sky. We will extend our understanding of how light travels and is reflected using practical experimentation and investigation. We will build on prior circuitry knowledge by exploring the role of switches using 'if' statements.
In art we will explore how signs, symbols and metaphors can be used to communicate ideas and meanings about a journey.

Home learning will not begin immediately this term. When it does begin, it will consist of 6 creative challenges on Seesaw, alongside daily KIRF, reading and spelling practice.
Spellings are given out on a Tuesday morning and tested the following week.
KIRFS will be tested on Wednesdays and Fridays.
As well as continuing with individual- class specific- weekly awards, the whole school will be using Class Dojo this year. Dojo is a points system that allows us to reward effort, consistency, demonstration of our core values, growth mindset and kindness. As well as collecting points individually, the children are also collecting points for their newly allocated School House. The House with the most points at the end of the year will win the House Cup.
