Autumn Term Updates

WB 9.9.19

This week we have really settled in to our Bold Badger classroom and new routines! We introduced our Faraway Lands Topic with a fabulous, creative day outside on Tuesday. We created stories in our Forest Schools area, made monster art work from natural resources and we became explorers and discovered a Faraway land using a map to help us. We discovered a witches house, a dark forest, a broken bridge and many more places!  In English, we are focusing our writing for the next few weeks on the book Where The Wild Things Are. We predicted what we thought would happen in the story before reading it and we have looked at the different characters in the book. In Maths we are looking at numbers to 100 and focusing on place value, creating different numbers using tens and ones apparatus.   In Computing, following on from our Topic book, we have focused on our mouse skills by creating our own 'wild thing' design.  Finally we were very lucky to have the Bishop of Durham visit our school on Friday afternoon to celebrate our first full week back in whole school worship. What a lovely end to a great first full week. Well done Bold Badgers!

WB 2.9.19

What a fantastic first week we have had in the Bold Badger classroom!  We have settled in really well and have enjoyed exploring our new classroom.  This week we have learnt about our school Christian Values in a special whole school assembly given by Reverend Kellett.  We have written our first piece of independent writing about our favourite places and we have recapped our numbers to 10, 20 and 100.  We have played Snakes and Ladders to help us recall counting in ones too.  We have also had a very interesting and impromptu discussion about The Titanic after a Bold Badger brought in a wonderful Titanic model from home!

Well done to every single Bold Badger who has tried their hardest this week and settled in so well.  We are very proud of you and we are looking forward to learning with you all over the next year!
