Wow! What a busy first week back we have had in Badgers this week. 


In Maths, we explored measuring objects both inside and outside the classroom. We looked at measuring in centimeters and meters. Some of us even took on the challenge to measure how long the playground is! 


We also began looking at weaving within DT, starting with paper. We then began designing a piece of fabric in our books and then started  transferred our designs onto our fabric. I was super impressed with the detail of everybody's work. Great job, Badgers! 



WB 2nd October 2023   


Badger class visited Hill Farm this week, we had a fantastic time! The Badgers all listened really well to Mr Cooper telling them all about the Farming equipment that is used today. Badgers were also very interested about what life was like in the 'olden days', we looked carefully around the farming equipment from the past and other household items. All of the Badgers decided they definitely would not have enjoyed living in the past as there was 'too many jobs to do' after school, like fetching water from the well and carrying it all the way back home.    



Have a lovely weekend!  

On 1st March it was St David's Day. We celebrated by making daffodils and trying the delicious Welsh Cakes which Immie brought in. Immie also wore her traditional Welsh costume.

To end our work about Grace Darling, the children were asked to draw, paint or make a model of the lighthouse where she lived for homework. These are some of the amazing models which were made.

Badgers and Hedgehogs put on an amazing Nativity performance
