WELCOME TO BADGERS

We are a Year 5 class and our teacher is Miss Katherine Smith

Autumn 2 Class News

Badgers have had a great term learning all about the Geography of East Anglia. We looked at a range of maps including topographical maps ready to investigate the human and physical geography of East Anglia.

To celebrate our learning from the autumn term, where we explored the history of Anglo Saxons and East Anglia, we visited Escot for an Anglo-Saxon day.

We thoroughly enjoyed grinding our own flour before making bread on a cob oven. As well as this, we carved runes into a wooden black to make a sign for Badger Class. When visiting the blacksmith, we worked together to create a brooch for the class.

Autumn 1 Class News

What a busy half term it has been! We have quickly settled into the new school year showing some amazing learning behaviours in class and around the school. 

In English, we have been writing a tale of fear based on Hansel and Gretel focusing on character and dialogue. We have been using 'show not tell' to build suspense whilst describing the main characters in detail. 

Our PSHE unit for this term is 'Being Me in My World' and we have been learning to empathise with people in this country whose lives are different to our own. We discussed refugees and the possible issues that they would face when arriving in a new country. Using balls to represent these issues, we saw how difficult it would be for someone to manage so many issues at once. 

 

Remote Learning 

If your child is self-isolating because they are displaying symptoms of COVID-19 or they have tested positive for COVID-19, they can still access their learning from home, if they are well enough to do so. All remote learning will be emailed directly to you (it will no longer be uploaded on to the school website).

We appreciate that some children may be feeling unwell, and will therefore not be able to continue with their learning at home.

We hope you find your child's remote learning enjoyable and easy to follow. If you have any problems at all in accessing this learning, please do not hesitate to email your child’s class teacher; we are here to support and guide you. Please photograph and email your child's work to the class email address which is: badgers@educ.somerset.gov.uk.
