Welcome to Badgers Class!
Welcome to Badgers Class page. We are one of two Year 5 classes, the other one being Owls class next door. We work closely together to provide a curriculum of rich learning opportunities and to prepare pupils for Year 6.
On this page you will find more information about our learning experiences and useful links.
Our topic this term is the 'rainforest', and will encompass much of the learning we do in English, Science, Geography and Art. We are currently reading 'The Explorer' by Katherine Rundell, so some of our 'letter writing' in English has been based on this. In science, we will be linking much of our work on 'Living Things and their Habitats', to life in the rainforest, and this will be extended in Geography through looking more closely at the climate and the characteristics of the rainforest environment.
Please do pop in and see us if you think you could contribute to our learning, or if you would like to find out more.
Class Teacher: Mrs Julie Marston (Mrs Lisa Jones-Wednesday while Mrs Marston works for the Maths Hub)

This half term:
Topic: The Rainforest
PE: Football (Tuesday) and Gym (Wednesday)
As part of our work on plant reproduction in Science, we prepared cuttings of rosemary to grow our own rosemary plants. When they start to grow (fingers crossed!) in the classroom, the children will be bringing them home to plant in their own garden.
