Badgers Class

Badgers have had a great Spring Term learning about the Tudors. We found out so much history about this era and learnt all about the monarchs who were in reign. In English, we loved our text My Friend Walter and wrote ghostly stories as a result. We also created and performed our own Kennings poems about Henry the VIII and his wives! Some of us even performed raps! In Art, we made portraits of the King himself in acrylics and even created guilt gold frames to showcase our skills in portraiture. In DT, we learnt about all pneumatics and created our own Tudor toys with these systems- some of our toys even had Tudor ruffs and moustaches just like William Shakespeare! 
During Shakespeare week, we read the play Midsummers Nights Dream and wrote some excellent descriptive writing about the enchanted forest. In maths, we have learnt to multiply and divide and fractions are now easy to us! We can work out amounts as numbers, fractions and decimals! In science, we learnt all about the digestive system and carried out our ‘poo’ experiments! In PE, we swam and gained our Swim England awards and learn key skills in rugby. In RE, we learnt what Dharma means to Hindus and how Guru Nanak is viewed by Sikhs as being the greatest teacher and their guide to the light their way. 
In summer term, we will be kicking off with our changing world  topic. We will explore the excellent book The Iron Man, create newspaper reports, make models of the man himself and create our own green screens and movies based on extracts from the book. We will also learn about a very inspirational young person to do with Climate change ‘Greta Thunberg’ we will write biographies, debate the important issues of climate change and write persuasive letters to stop waste to our government! In Maths, we will continue with decimals & fractions then move on to time & money. In PE, we will dance and create routines for our summer production and work on key skills in cricket. A very busy but exciting term ahead!
