Badgers Class

Welcome to Badgers Class

We hope you are enjoying the sunshine and managing to get out for a walk once a day. What a strange time we are having at the moment, but hopefully we will be back at school soon. We miss you all. I know learning at home is sometimes tricky but keep going !

Our Summer topic – Awesome Allies  If you want to learn more about World War II then you could read or watch:  Woeful Second World War (Horrible Histories).   If you would like another project, the Olympics 2020 in Japan has been postponed until 2021. Choose a country that would have been participating and design a fact file.  Send it to dclarke@newtontony.wilts.sch.uk or head@newtontony.wilts.sch.uk

Make sure you have breaks from learning and don’t study for more than one hour at a time.  Click on the links for your weekly learning activities.

Our Spring Topic – Groovy Greeks

Take a trip back in time … Would you rather live in Sparta or Athens ? Think carefully because lives were very different depending on your gender!  Did you know that the Greeks had some strange superstitions about food – some wouldn’t eat beans as they thought they contained the souls of the dead! Have more fun learning about the Ancient Greeks  www.natgeokids.com

Our Autumn Topic – Our Blue Planet

We are learning to classify living organisms and finding out about weird and wonderful animals! Did you know there are over 8.7 million different animal species on our Earth. 6.5 million species are on the Land and 2.2 million species are in the Ocean.  Badgers class wonder how many are in another galaxy!  Have more fun learning about the Blue Planet www.bbc.co.uk/cbbc/quizzes/blue-planet-big-blue

Black History Month

We studied many different talented and successful Black People throughout History.  We produced a book based on Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela’s ideology, it helps people to keep hoping for a peaceful future.  We decided that everyone is different and unique but everyone is equal.  We enjoyed looking at African art and designing our own African mask.  We have decided to support a link orphanage in Ghana, thank you to Mrs Lomotey for teaching us about Africa and how the children in our orphanage will benefit from our donations.  We are also hoping to benefit from learning more about African culture when the children write to us and send us photos.
