Badgers Autumn Term Learning (1)

Homework Expectations 23/24

What a fabulous day we had at Weston Park Museum. The children found lots of information out about Sheffield during different decades, they were able to find artefacts that we had discussed in this terms history topic.  As well as lots of other fantastic learning about different aspects of history!

World Book Day 2023

We had a fabulous World Book Day this year, the children came in some amazing costumes, well done! We completed a lot of lovely reading activities and read a lot of stories together.

In English this term we are learning the story of 'The Papaya that spoke'

The children have enjoyed learning the story and creating actions to help them perform it!

The Papaya that spoke - performing with actions

We tasted a papaya to find out what it was like. The children tasted, smelt and touched the papaya in order to create adjectives to describe the fruit. They then used these words in their writing.

Tasting a papaya

The children decided they wanted to find out more about the papaya - they added water to the seeds to find out what would happen (they thought they might swell up like orr beads) and then carried out an experiment to see if the skin would float as it 'looked like a canoe' to their delight it did!

Will the papaya float?

Class 2 Autumn News

We plan out topics so that there are four long blocks of time to immerse ourselves in a topic and allow plenty of time to follow the children's ideas. In between the blocks we also have theme weeks which is how we teach our RE curriculum. In these weeks we concentrate totally on the RE theme for the week and approach it in a very cross curricular manner, so the children do English, Art, Maths, Geography activities to name but a few, that are all linked to the learning intentions for the RE work.

Reading Adventure Day - October 2022

October 6th 2022 was Reading Adventure day. We had so much fun reading 'How to catch a star' by Oliver Jeffers and doing lots of creative activities linked to the story!

We made our own rockets to fly to space, we 'caught' our own stars and created a class star mobile. We made rockets out of shapes and we wrote ten things we wanted to take with us on our rockets.  The children were very imaginative and had a great day!
