Welcome back to school Badgers!
This term sees some changes to the adults who will be supporting your learning. Your adults are:
Mrs Worsfold, Mr Smith and Mrs Hawthorne.
PE sessions have changed to Tuesdays and Thursdays; make sure you have the correct kit in school so you can take part.
Our class text this half term is 'Wonder' by R J Palacio. We will be learning about the British Kings and Queens, with particular reference to the Tudors.
What's in the Box?
On Wednesday 28 November, the whole school had a 'Wow Writing Day'. Our theme was 'what's in the box?'
Every class arrived this morning to find a box in their rooms. All boxes were different and each class chose a different style of writing.
This was Badgers' box and we wrote short stories about what was in our box. Our ideas were full of imagination and we had lots fun writing.
The Globe Theatre and the Lion King
On 21 November, we visited the Globe Theatre in London. This fabulous theatre was built by Shakespeare and was used to show all of his 37 plays. We had a tour of the theatre then took part in a workshop based round the play Twelfth Night. This was the play we studied in Year Four.
When we were finished at the Globe, we went to the Lyceum Theatre, where we met up with Year Six, and watched the stage version of the Lion King. This was an extremely memorable experience which many of us said was "The best day of my life!"

On 11th October, we visited the RAF Museum in Hendon. This was as part of our History topic on WW2 and the Battle of Britain. The museum is built on the site that the planes took off for the Battle of Britain.
We saw an amazing array of planes, helicopters and weapons and read some fascinating information displayed at each exhibit.
After lunch, we experienced a WW2 classroom. This was so different to what we are used to. When the air-raid siren went off, some of us were terrified. It was good to realise how it must have felt for children in 1940.
On Wednesday 19th September, Badgers had a dance workshop all day. We worked on techniques for movement and composing individual, paired and group sequences. We finished by putting it all together for a performance. It was great fun.
On Thursday 20th September, some of us went down to our local shopping centre and performed our dance for shoppers and members of the community. We were amazing!
