Welcome to Badgers' Class Page!

Class Teachers: Miss Newton

Class TA: Mrs Hobbs

 

It has been so lovely settling in and meeting the children this term.  They are a great class!

  

Our topic for Terms 3 and 4 is:

Voyage: South America

Here's where US travelers can go in Central and South America

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 South America and comparing it to the UK.  We will be comparing the Amazon River to the River Thames, the Andes to the Southern Fells and exploring the culture of each of the 13 countries in South America.  We'll also have computing database skills to learn, lifecycles in science, answer the questions 'How can following God bring freedom and justice?'  and 'What difference does the Resurrection make to Christians?' in RE, look at decimals ,fractions and percentages in maths and study the Explorer to inspire our writing.

 

The Explorer

A Few Reminders:

P.E. is on Wednesdays and Thursdays - please still come to school wearing your Farmborough School P.E. uniform on those days.

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 and spelling practise and consolidation can be done via the spelling Purple Mash quizzes.

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.
