Welcome to Badgers' Class Page!

Class Teachers: Miss Newton

Class TA: Mrs Watts and Mrs Grey

 

Welcome to Term 5!  Everyone has been working super hard this year and we are very proud of them! 

  

Our topic for Terms 5 and 6 is:

Growing Up 

There's a Boy in the Girls' Bathroom

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 Growing Up - thinking about the circulatory system, studying the heart and lungs and how we can be healthy both mentally and physically.  We'll be having Bath Mind come into school to help us develop our wellbeing with creative activities and cooking.  We'll also have computing skills learning to design 3D models, answer the questions 'Does belief in Akhirah help Muslims lead a good life?' and ‘Creation and science – conflicting or complementary?’ in RE, look at statics and using graphs in maths and use 'There's A Boy In The Girls' Bathroom' by Louis Sachar 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  - 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.

The 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.
