Badgers

 

Badgers is our lower Key Stage 2 class, which caters for children in years 3 and 4.  Badgers class is taught by Miss Beams and Mrs Jeffs.

We enjoy a thematic approach to the curriculum, which means that all of our National Curriculum subjects and learning are linked to one area of study.

Throughout the course of one academic year, we cover three different topics (one per term) and lessons are differentiated to support and extend all of the children in the class.

We learn through high quality classroom based activities, which cater for all learning styles. Lessons are enhanced by trips, visitors and outside learning.

Our Spring term topic is ‘Mighty Mountains’.

Through our topic we will be learning about Mountain ranges across the world, where they are located and how they are formed. We will be learning about volcanoes and the ways they are formed also. The children will have the opportunity to read world maps and plot where countries are in the world.

In English, we are focusing on the text ‘The Ice Palace’ by Robert Swindells.
