Welcome to Badger Class's web page!
Our Christian values for the Summer term are:
This term we will start by learning about Roald Dahl in our SIGNIFICANT AUTHORS unit, concentrating on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory- we will be looking at the features and the presentation and will be producing our own text linked to the book. We will also be finding out about INSTRUCTIONAL WRITING; how this is structured and how we can adapt this to write our own set of instructions. Finally, we will be looking at different types of POETRY before using this knowledge to write our own.
We will be learning about NUMBER- Place value and the four operations as well as fractions, decimals and percentages. We will also be studying GEOMETRY- shapes, space, measures and angles
and we will be looking at STATISTICS and how we use these in our everyday lives.
Each Friday morning we compete for our times tables challenge!
We will be using our mathematical knowledge to solve problems and make connections with other subjects. We will also be recognising the links between mathematics and our everyday lives.
This term is an International Primary Curriculum topic entitled WHAT'S ON THE MENU?. This has a food and restaurant focus and we will be studying food; including healthy living, nutritional requirements and how restaurants run.
PE will be on Monday and Tuesday this term (Tuesday is outdoor PE).
Swimming will start after half term- a named costume, swimming hat and towel will be needed.
In line with the school's homework policy:
English, (which is topic linked whenever possible and shared in class every Monday) The children are given the opportunity to read through eachother's work on a Monday morning and comment, as well as talking about what they have done.
KIRFs and Spellings are tested on alternative Fridays.
Details are in the home/school communication book each week.
Please check the home/school book for up to date information as well as the individual targets for mathematics and English.
PLEASE MAKE SURE THE BOOK IS IN SCHOOL EVERY DAY.
