Welcome to our class page
Badgers class is one of two Year 5 classes, where our children are in the final two years of Primary education - UKS2 - before their next learning step and their transition to Year 7 and secondary school. At this upper end of Key Stage 2, the ethos is very much on developing the sense of independence and responsibility: we have high expectations of our children, particularly as role models for the rest of the school, but we also have high amounts of fun along the way!
On this page you will find more information about our learning experiences and useful links. Please visit our class page frequently throughout each term as it will be updated so you are able to access information to support your child as well as seeing all the wonderful learning activities happening in class. This will be in addition to viewing their Seesaw account. We will also add any forthcoming events which your child may be involved in that will provide you with prior notice.

This term, our topic - mysterious Mayas - will be based around the ancient Maya civilization. There will be a heavy focus on history and geography with links to all the other subjects in particular, Science and English. In addition to this, given the unusual circumstances this year, for the Summer term, we will be continuing to plan a long term and effective approach to support the children in moving forwards both academically but prioritising their emotional wellbeing and mental health and target the needs of our children through The Wish programme. We recognise that the past several months may have disrupted and affected many lives, and some more than others. In response to the needs of our community, we have written and developed a bespoke and robust programme to support our children. Please also take a look at our well-being section of our website.
Badgers have had a fantastic start to the new term. I have been thoroughly impressed by their attitude towards their learning. In English, the children have been developing characters for their own myth/legend story. We have learnt that many myths were created by early civilisations to make sense of things happening in the natural world around them because they didn’t yet understand modern day science. In our stories, we are going to focus on using relative clauses, similes and metaphors, personification and expanded noun phrases. We can't wait to read through our final edit towards the end of the unit.
