Welcome to Badger Class - Years 5 & 6

Welcome to our new academic year Badgers.  This term children will study Ancient Greece in History and explore Europe in Geography, with a focus on Greece.  As artists, children will be focusing on developing their drawing skills and working with electrical systems in DT.  In science, we will be jetting off to outer space and exploring light.  In RE we will be exploring the best way for a Sikh to show commitment to God and the role of Mary in the Christmas story.  English will have a text focus on The Jamie Drake Equation, Jason and the Argonauts and T’Was the night before Christmas.  Writing genres will include: diary writing, narrative stories, Greek Myths, biographies, persuasive leaflets and performance poetry.  Maths will focus on place value, the four operations and fractions.

PE days are Mondays and Wednesdays.  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.  Spellings and times tables will be tested on Fridays and Reading Journals will be collected in every Thursday. Badgers all have their own Homework Diary to help them organise their school week and keep track of key dates and homework set.
