Badgers have had a great three weeks back together! We have all enjoyed reading the beautiful book, The boy, the mole, the fox and the horse. We have had lots of discussion about the poignant messages in the book and shared our views on comparing ourselves to others and how we can show kindness; not just materialistically but in what we do for others too. We also wrote some amazing persuasive letters to our friends to remind them to be individual and unique and created some beautiful water colour artwork based on your favourite messages from the book. We have also continued our Tudor Learning and created some great raps and poetry about Henry the VIIII wives!In science, we got to learnt about the digestive system and it’s main functions. We even designed our own digestive system aprons, so we could remember the key parts! The poo experiment was our favourite and we learnt how waste travels through our body! We learnt all about teeth and how vital they are for breaking down food. We were so excited when we found a skull from a deer at our forest school site. Some of us quickly identified that it was a herbivore because of its teeth! Great purposeful learning there!
Next term, we will be learning about the changing world and climate change. This is a topic close to our hearts, as we are all keen environmentalists! We will explore the text Iron Man, where we will write recounts and newspaper reports based on our Iron Man sightings! We will also be reading the biography of Greta Thundberg and we will then write persuasive and discursive texts about the importance of recycling and environmental change. We will be taking part in climate change drama and debate scenarios too! For Maths, we will be measuring, using money and brushing up on our decimals and fraction skills! For PE we will be swimming and learning new skills in cricket! RE will be based on Christianity and we will explore the concept of the kingdom of God and stewardship. For French, we will be talking about what we like to eat and even have a authentic Parisian cafe, where we can ask for food in french! Another great term of learning in Badger Class!
