Welcome to Badger class.
This half term we will be thinking about the question
‘Why and where could we hide in a medieval castle?
Our project this term will continue to have a big focus on History, how past events influence the future. We have started the term with investigating different castles around the UK and learning about William the Conqueror. The children will investigate the clothes, armour and weapons used in medieval times and will finish the project with a Medieval day in the classroom and a castles workshop. We will also be looking at the crops that might have been grown in a castle’s gardens.
Reading underpins everything we do in the classroom and Badgers thoroughly enjoy Reading for Pleasure sessions with friends. Recommending books, suggesting alternative vocabulary, explaining the meaning of words, empathising with book characters and escaping into a wide range of texts.
Badgers also enjoy their second classroom, the great outdoors, where lots of learning and fun takes place.
