We are the Badgers!
Welcome to our class.
We're clean and tidy, strong and protecting. We work hard and make friends for life.
"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go."
'I Can Read With My Eyes Shut' - Dr Seuss
Welcome back to a new year and a new way of learning, everyone! Well done to you all for making such a great start on your Teams learning. Every week, we'll post up our celebrated work for you to look at and enjoy.
Arian has been polite, hard-working and a pleasure to have in the Badger bubble! We thought his sketch of a poison dart frog was outstanding - such attention to detail - COMING SOON FOR ALL TO SEE!
Eva has made a fabulous start in the new ‘Fowls’ bubble – a bubble formed by children from the Foxes and Owls classes! She has put a great deal of effort into every activity and her learning is presented beautifully. I was incredibly impressed with your careful and accurate drawing in art, Eva – I almost mistook it for a photograph! Very well done for a fantastic first two weeks back in school!
George's fact file about Brazil, a country with a rainforest, absolutely bowled us over! High quality drawings and super facts make it a joy to behold - you can see for yourselves above!
Hunter has impressed us with his commitment to home learning; his work has been of a consistent high quality and carefully presented. We especially loved the video presentation about Australia!
Lucy has put a huge amount of effort into and shown incredible enthusiasm for all our remote learning, even completing some activities twice to perfect her activities! I have been very impressed with the time and care Lucy has taken to make sure that her learning is accurate and her work presented neatly. I loved listening to your description of your 'eatwell' plate in science, Lucy - very well done for all your hard work!
Special Mentions - Autumn 2
Such a tough choice for Miss Houseman and Miss Hind to make, given the wonderful start that all of the Badgers have made. This term's deserving recipients were Ivy and Albie: Ivy for her resilience and transition into a super learner and Albie for his commitment to learning. (photos to follow)
We have been busy making Christmas decorations over the last week - Christmas trees with sequins and figgy pudding tea light holders. We hope they help to brighten your houses over the festive period!
Our Year 3 Christmas Party looked a little bit different this year but we had a great time playing Christmassy games, doing a Christmas quiz and of course enjoying some festive treats! Unfortunately, we still had to put up with Miss Houseman's dancing but we didn't let that put a dampener on the festivities!
Christmas Dinner fun!
On Wednesday, we enjoyed our Christmas dinner whilst wearing our Christmas jumpers and listening to Christmas songs.
We also made some lovely Christmas cards - what a wonderfully festive start to December.
Children in Need
Well done on everyone on your efforts in dressing up! There were lots of dressing gowns, onesies and pairs of slippers on display which all made for a very comfortable morning of learning and raised plenty of money for Children in Need too!
Well done Badgers for completing your first set of homework! We were so impressed by the quality of the colour poems that it would be a shame not to share some of them here.

Following our class vote, we have chosen David Walliams' 'Billionaire Boy' as our very first class novel. We can't wait to get stuck in, find out what happens and hear what weird and wonderful voices Miss Hind and Miss Houseman have up their sleeves!
Our PE lessons will take place on Tuesdays and Fridays this term.
