Welcome to Badger Class!

Wow!  Where is the year going?  We are onto yet another fantastic topic 'Oliver's Vegetables' and have thoroughly enjoyed learning new facts, alongside new skills across the curriculum.  Oliver's Vegetables has been one of our favourite books to read in Badger Class.  We have engaged in great discussions about our own likes and dislikes regarding different vegetables.  We have created our own bar chart in class and, after looking at the results, have concluded that we are all going to grow big and strong as we love to eat such a variety of vegetable.  Pop your heads in to see this one morning on our glass window!

In Maths we have started to learn about multiplication.  We are superb mathematicians and have grown in confidence when counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.  We challenge you to quiz us at home to see just how good we are.  In addition, we have continued to deepen our understanding with addition and subtraction and, have even been great detectives when it comes to problem solving to help Oliver find an answer.

In English we have looked at persuasive posters and the features on them that make us want to believe in what they are promoting.  The children in groups created their own posters to encourage each other to eat their chosen vegetable;  these were presented at the end of the lesson!  We used the features we had found in a good example of a persuasive letter to write our own.  We ensured we used as many features in our own writing to make sure Redfield's would kindly give us some  extra seeds to plant in class.  These were fantastic!

We have planted our own carrots, courgettes and peas in class.  We are ensuring to water them every day and have all taken responsibility to move them into sunlight as much as possible as we know they need this to grow!  We will keep you updated on their growth.

On top of all of this, we were very busy practising our class assembly.  I am sure you would all agree that we did a brilliant job! Well done Badgers!  We were so excited to practise this and share our work with you all.  We were very proud, as were our teachers!

We are looking forward to next term and all the exciting things that are to come!
