Welcome to Badger Class - Years 5 & 6

This summer term our topic is Changes.  In the first half, children will study the Cold War within a local history study exploring how Newbury was part of the conflict.  As artists, children will be focusing on 3D modelling, textiles and collage.  In science, children will study acquired and inherited characteristics, fossils, parents and offspring, Charles Darwin, animal evolution, variation and adaptation.  This unit will complement our RSE unit of work.  In RE we will be exploring the new Covenant in Christianity and belief in Akhirah for Muslims.   After half term, children will develop their understanding of mountains and volcanoes in Geography. In DT, they will be making a bag for life fit for purpose, exploring the use of different textiles and complementary sewing stitches. English will focus on play scripts, informal and formal writing, debates and a text focus on “Darwin’s Dragons” by Lindsay Galvin.  Maths will focus on properties of shapes, position and direction and problem solving.

PE days are Mondays and Fridays.  Badgers will need to come to school dressed in their PE kit please.

Homework is set on Fridays and should be handed in on Wednesdays.
