Welcome to Badgers Class
Autumn Term 2021
We welcome all our new Year 5 and 6 children to Badgers class. This term as part of our integrated curriculum we are exploring:
Our key line of Enquiry : What does a hero look like?
St Thomas Christmas Tree Festival: Our Y6 Learning Ambassadors went to St Thomas Church and erected our school Christmas Tree (we are number 81). The theme is ‘ Our Family Christmas’ and all the children drew a picture of their family on baubles. You are welcome to visit the festival from 30th November to 5th December.

We remember those who died fighting for our freedom and also those who survived. We said thank you to our own families in the Armed Forces and their bravery and heroism. Did you know there are three different coloured poppies? What so they represent? Follow the link to watch Remembrance Day Newsround https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround
Which Ancient Greek philosopher or scholar would you like to be your teacher? and why? Read our choices below. Do you agree? Ask your parents if they will subscribe to the Historical Association and learn more about being a Historical Detective/Archeologist ! https://www.history.org.uk/primary/categories/greece
Would you rather live in Athens or Sparta? What a class debate we had. Sadly we were mostly destroyed by the Roman Army when we were busy debating!
As part of our work to be involved in how we can be a hero and make a difference, we took part in the Stop Modern Slavery Art Exhibition in Salisbury Cathedral. We all visited the exhibition and also had a tour of the Cathedral. We saw the Magna Carta (Latin for Great Charter). One of our class won £25 for third prize in the Exhibition! #1Life1Voice. Why not visit the cathedral with your family https://www.salisburycathedral.org.uk/
We collected items for our Harvest Service at St Andrews Church and then took them to the Salisbury Foodbank. We collected 109kg of food for people in need in Salisbury. Click on the link to find out more about the Foodbank https://salisbury.foodbank.org.uk/
