'Love One Another As I Have Loved You' (John 15:12)

* Squirrels Class swimming lesson this Tuesday *

 

Welcome to our Year 5 and Year 6 Badgers Class ! 
Our Class Teachers are Mrs Clarke and Miss Mcllvar.  Our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Leatham.
 

Our key line of enquiry for the Spring Term is- 'Is Our World Unique?

We had a fantastic time revisiting the British Museum! This year, we were able to apply our learning about the Ancient Greeks. We also revised our work on Ancient Egyptians and Ancient Britain! We were able to see artefacts we had learned about in class, like the Sutton Hoo helmet, up close in real life! In class this term, we will be using our historical skills to evaluate the historical significance of famous and lesser known individuals, such as Alfred the Great, Mary Seacole and Lily Parr.

Our key Line of Enquiry for the Autumn Term is ‘What does a hero look like?’ 
We visited the Winchester Science Centre and Planetarium and explored our understanding of Science.  We debated whether we felt Albert Einstein was a hero. 

PE- Rock and Roll Dancing

We have had a fantastic time this term learning all about how to create a 50’s style rock and roll dance. We have really been enjoying learning about heel-toe walks, spins and kick jumps, and choreographing our own dances!

We learned about heroes in history and designed class presentations. We used our STEM sentences to support our opinions during our debate eg. I agree because.

After our Church Harvest Worship, Year 6 visited Salisbury Food Bank to deliver our food collection. We dropped off 90kg of food to support local families in need. We had a tour and helped unload our delivery. We appreciate our local volunteers and think they are local heroes.  If you would like to donate find out more information https://salisbury.foodbank.org.uk/
 

During Art Club we designed and made a representation of our favourite hero.
 
 
We visited the British Museum in London. We deepened our understanding of the heroes of Ancient Greeks and the Ancient Egyptians. We explored some of the other displays which were fascinating !
