  • Thursday 1 April 2021 Friday 1st April We have had a really fun week this week finishing our topic on `What is growing in our garden` and linking it to our new topic on Sculptures.  We looked at the work of a famous sculptor Charlotte Huppfield who uses things found in nature to create her clay pieces.  The children then had a turn to create their own interpretation of her work by creating a clay tile and using leaves and twigs to make an imprint. Can you seen the leaves that they have used?

  • Saturday 20 March 2021 Friday 19th March This week we have continued having lots of fun learning about measuring.  Last week we learnt how to measure length wit a ruler and this week we have been measuring the mass of an object- finding our how heavy or light it is and the volume of a container- the amount of space that an object occupies in a container  such as full and empty.
  • Friday 12 March 2021 Friday 12th March It has been so lovely to be back in school this week and see all of our wonderful Badgers.  Well done to the WHOLE CLASS for coming back with such a great attitude to learning.  We have had a lovely time sharing the learning that the children completed whilst at home and catching up with each other.
  • Friday 5 March 2021 Friday 5th March 2021 I had such a lovely chat with Joseph this week in our class assembly time on Thursday.  As it was world book day we shared our favourite books together.  I read Peace at last by Jill Murphy which is a story about Daddy bear who can't sleep because of Mrs Bears snoring.  So he tries to sleep in lots of different places in the house or the garden but in each place there are lots of different noises that keep him awake.  Joseph shared a book called The Cave by Rob Hodgson.  It is an exciting story about a cave that is home to a creature, a creature that never leaves the cave because of the wolf.  Would you come out of  a cave if you were asked to by a wolf?  
  • Monday 1 March 2021 Monday 1st March 2021 Hello Badgers, I hope you all had a lovely weekend and enjoyed feeling the fresh air on your faces and the warmth of the sun. Did you get out for a walk and spot the signs of spring? I saw some bright yellow daffodils, some small purple crocus and a few primroses whilst out on my walk.  Theses were my steps to success; feeling happier and more energised but my next challenge is to start my running again.  Its good to have a goal and have something challenging to work towards.  I wonder what you will be trying to get better at this week?  What are your first steps to success.  Is it remembering to start every lower case letter with a lead in?  Or could it be keeping your writing on the line?  Maybe it is remembering to used your joined writing or putting in capital letters and full stops every time.

  • Monday 22 February 2021 Monday 22nd February Welcome back Badgers.  I hope you had a really relaxing break from school and managed to get out for some lovely walks in the wind and the rain!  I put on my wellies and went on lots of walks and enjoyed seeing the daffodils and snow drops.  Maybe next time you are out and about you could look out for some spring flowers and send me your pictures.  Have a great week of home learning.  Remember to send in your amazing work for me to see.  I wonder how many trophies I will be giving out for Jasmine PE when we return?  
  • Friday 12 February 2021 Friday 12th February Well done Badgers.  You have successfully completed a whole term of home learning!  It has not been easy and I know sometimes you have felt like giving up but well done for using your emerald gem power!  This is where you have stuck at it, even when you have found it difficult.  You have shown great resilience and determination, like lots of great sporting hero's and inventors.
