Welcome to Badgers' Class Page!

Class Teachers: Miss Newton

Class TA: Mrs Watts and Mrs Grey


Welcome to Term 1!  Everyone has had a great start to the year.  


Our topic for Terms 3 and 4 is:

The First World War 

War Horse Print – National Theatre Shop

Have a look at the Topic Web we will use as a basis for our lessons and the questions we want to explore. 

For the next two terms we will be exploring the First World War - thinking about what life was like for the soldiers and those left at home.  We'll be focusing on soldiers from Farmborough and how to be a historian using the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website.  We'll also have computing skills learning to use spreadsheets, evolution of life in science, answer the questions 'How can following God bring freedom and justice?' and ‘What difference does the resurrection make for 'Christians?’ in RE, look at fractions, decimals and percentages in maths and use War Horse by Michael Morpurgo to stimulate our writing.

Here is the PowerPoint from the Meet The Teacher evening on the 13.9.2023


A Few Reminders:

P.E. is on Mondays and although normally on Thursdays, we have Forest School on a Wednesday instead for Term 3 - please come to school wearing your Farmborough School P.E. uniform on PE days and warm clothes for Forest School.

Please could children bring reusable water bottles into school as we are trying to be more eco-friendly.

Homework is given out on Fridays and handed in the following week on Wednesday (or before if you've finished it!). Spelling test is on Friday.  Please complete your tables, Doodle Maths, reading (5 times a week) and spellings too for a Friday.

Home-school book to be brought in every day.  It will get looked at on Fridays and house points will be awarded for the number of times your have read.  Please practise your spelling words (x3), your times-tables and record your reading with a parent's initial next to the reading you have done (at least x3).  Doodle Maths is expected to be done weekly so the children are in their green zones.
