Welcome to Badgers class pages! Click on the stars to find letters home, project and weekly homework and also photographs and news of our learning! The Badgers have settled in well to their new class and we have already learnt a lot about the "Wild West", ready to begin writing some newspaper articles. The Badgers showed their cookery skills too, making pastry from scratch to produce some delicious "cowboy" pasties last week! This week we have learnt more about the different groups of people living on the American plains in the nineteenth century and met an archaeologist who showed us how to dig for objects from the past and how to date them too! We have written some exciting Oregon Trail adventures based on our book this term, "Little House on The Prairie", and we enjoyed listening to extracts of these around the campfire during our cowboy day! We also tried our hand at roping in cattle, and rounding them up and crossing the creek with all our belongings! The Badgers rounded off their Wild West topic in style with their class assembly, and really shared all their knowledge with us! Well done Badgers!
The Badgers have begun learning about the universe we live in in our "Into Space" topic, making solar system mobiles and thinking about space themed abstract art. Watch this space for more exciting learning news from the Badgers!
