Badgers Class

Badgers have loved the first half term of learning about The Victorians. We kicked off the topic with a trip to the Ancient House museum where we learnt all about the Victorian era and Duleep Singh. Then we found out lots about Suffolk in the Victorian times and how the Maharajah himself influenced our locality. For English, we have read I was a rat by Philip Pullman and enjoyed having debates about Corporal punishment. We even wrote great persuasive letters to our headteacher about caning. In maths, we learnt to multiply and divide and are now working on our times tables. In RE, we learnt about karma and what it means to Hindus, then we talked about how we can relate Karma to our own lives. In PE, we went swimming and learnt skills in rugby such as passing and intercepting. Forest school has been amazing too, we have cooked pizzas on the fire, made remembrance 
art in the woods and made dens.
 
Next term, we are continuing with the Victorians and are looking forward to writing place scripts for Oliver Twist and will explore poetry through the beautiful books Lost Words. We will also be learning how to find length and perimeter in maths and work on our fractions. In RE, we will be exploring Christianity and learning about sacrifice. Finally, we will be looking forward to Shakespeare week, where we will read a Midsummer nights dream and take part in role-play and drama based on this great play. An outstanding term of learning and we are very excited to show you what we have learnt!
