Welcome to Badgers class with Mrs Coate. We have some fabulous adults working in our class throughout the week: Mrs Nadeau, Mrs Clarke, Mrs Anjos, Mr Plumbley and Mrs Morton. The children have settled quickly into year five and are working well.
In Badgers we expect the highest of standards in behaviour, attitude, learning and homework. We aim to set the standards for all the other pupils in the school, being positive role models. We are lucky to have Mr Jackson who teaches us PE on a Tuesday morning and also Mr Plumbley who will be teaching DT.
In English this term we will be focussing initially on grammar skills and then writing narratives and a range of non-fiction texts. In Maths we focus on Number; exploring place value, rounding and negative numbers. We then focus on our calculation skills.
Our topic this first term is history called: Is now the best time to live in Chard? We will be looking at the Victorian era and also life during WW2. In Science we are learning about Animals, including Humans and materials.
