Hello, and welcome to our Badgers class page!
Here on this page you will be able to see our exciting learning activities that we get up to with Miss Hardwick, Mrs Knowles and Miss Jubb. We will also do some exciting learning activities with Miss George and Mrs Alyas.
Our Geography topic for this term is Costa Rica.
Our philosophical question is 'Would you like to live in Costa Rica?'
Each class at St. Patrick’s has a class saint that we learn about throughout the year. We talk about our Saint regularly and encourage the children to learn, talk and ask questions about their Saint. Each Saint has a Feast Day, where we celebrate their lives and what they did in order to become a Saint.
In Badgers, our class saint is Saint Columba. St. Columba was an Irish missionary who is credited with spreading Christianity in Scotland and the building of churches and abbey's. St. Columba's feast day is the 9th of June.
As a faith school, RE as at the forefront of everything we do. We celebrate RE in many different ways across the school day, such as through Collective Worship, Godly Plays and Liturgical Prayers.
Our topics RE topics for Autumn are: Families, Belonging, and Advent. We will also celebrate Harvest, and have an alternative faith week where we learn about Judaism.
Our RE topics for Spring are: Special people, Meals and Lent.
As part of our learning this term, we made some peg dolls. We learnt about how children in the Victorian times had different toys, depending on if they were a boy or a girl, and how much money they had. We learnt that some children made their own peg dolls to play with and we gave it a try too!
