Welcome to Badgers Class!
Please find our Autumn 1 Curriculum Newsletter below!
What a wonderful first week we have had as Year 4 Badgers! The children have settled back in beautifully after the summer holiday and we have enjoyed learning more about our class animal as part of our mini-Badgers topic. This has included generating our own research questions, carrying out research, writing and illustrating our own interactive spreads about badgers in the style of the picturebook Whose Tracks Are These? by Jim Nail. Watch this space!
We have also been exploring the work of graffiti artist, Banksy, using their iconic stencilling technique and spray paint to create our own 'Banksy Badgers' display. The Badgers showed impressive determination and focus drawing and cutting out their own badger face stencils - do come and admire our display in the Hall!
Next week, we will be launching this half term's topic, The Race to the Top of the World, and beginning our whole-class novel, The Last Polar Bears. Our class page will be updated regularly with news so keep checking back!
