Badger Term 6 Newsletter 2017

On the last day of term, we had a bit of a surprise! George’s cat had bought in a slow worm, which at first we all thought was a snake. We did a lot of research and found out that he was in fact a slow worm, who are not slow and not worms!

They are in fact, legless lizards.  One way to tell is that they have eyelids, whereas snakes do not. We were all very pleased to get the chance to see him so close. We then released him to safety at the bottom of our school field. Well done Badger Class! Slow Warm Warriors!​

Badger class have begun studying teeth as part of their science topic this term.  We used dental mirrors to look careful at our own teeth before making a model of our lower jaw, we even included any new teeth which were just beginning to grow or any gaps where our milk teeth had fallen out.

We found out that not all out teeth are the same but are different types depending on what jobs they are needed to do. Incisors for cutting or nibbling, canines for ripping and tearing, and molars for grinding or chewing our food. We discovered that we will have more teeth as adults than we did as children.

Healthy living week

This week in Badger class we have been learning about how to keep our bodies and minds, healthy.

We  designed, made and ate some very yummy sandwiches. We thought carefully about how to include as many food groups as possible, to ensure a balanced meal.

We have also been having some calming ‘mindfulness’ activities and been joining in with a yoga lesson.

In Badger class we have been reading a wonderful adventure story called ‘Oliver and the Seawigs’. Oliver and his friend Iris come across some very sarcastic seaweed! We have been using role-play to explore sarcasm and come up with some sarcastic phrases of our own.
