Welcome to Badger Class
We are the oldest children in school: Year 6 (10-11 years). There are 15 children in our class, our teacher is Mrs Howey. We take on important roles in school such as House Captains, Monitors and Buddies. We are the role models for everyone else in school. We are taught in a ‘pod’ with Fox Class (Year 5) so we also work with Mrs Shand and Miss Gardner.
Year 6 will be taking Statutory Assessment Tests at the end of this year so we have a very busy year ahead. To find out what we will be doing this year look at the Our Curriculum section of our website. To help us with our spelling and reading look at the phonics and reading section of our website. As we get older, we access the internet more and school wants us to stay safe online. To find out how you can support us in staying safe online, checkout the E-Safety section of our website. The Badger class information poster also helps us to organise our equipment and resources for the week ahead.
This term we have some fabulous experiences planned for the children such a visit to Souter Lighthouse and Marsden Rock, this will help bring our geography topic to life (What happens when the land meets the sea?). Some of the children will be taking part in a residential visit to Weardale, working on risk taking and resilience. In Science , we will be looking into the work of Nikola Tesla and exploring his contributions to the development of electricity. In PE we are all looking forward to returning to swimming this term and developing our skills with a coach on Fantastic Fridays.
