We are the Brilliant Badgers!
Autumn art using pastels
We are a mixed Year 1 and 2 class who enjoy our learning. Our teacher is Mrs Burnett and we also have Mrs Cunningham and Mrs Moulds who help us with our learning too.
Sharing reading with Mrs Cunningham
Mrs Burnett is really pleased that we have all settled into our new class and how we all try really hard with our learning. She was really proud of all of us in church when we performed our Nativity Service. Mrs Burnett would also like to tell our mums and dads how grateful she was for providing our costumes and helping us rehearse our lines.

Trip to Eureka!
Our school trips help us have ‘hands on’ experiences to support our learning. In our Autumn term, we went to The Deep which we all really enjoyed. We saw many different fish, penguins and even sharks! Our workshop was about the poles and we learnt about which animals live in the Arctic or Antarctic as well as learning about different food chains by playing a game. Our annual trip to the pantomime at theatre in Lincoln was great fun, especially when we got wet with super soakers! We all enjoyed different parts of Snow White but Mrs Burnett thought the train coming onto the stage was amazing.
We visited Lincoln Castle as part of our Castles topic in February. It was very cold but we really enjoyed it! Look at some of the fantastic castles we made as part of our homework.
In March, the whole school went on a trip to Eureka! to help support our scientific enquiry skills. We had a fabulous time in our workshop which was entitled ‘Living in Space’. Lunch time was amazing as we had lunch on a train with Squirrels.

Homework is a great way to develop independent learning skills, practise what we have been learning in school and find out more about topics. We use a grid of nine activities, covering different subjects and learning styles. Over the term we are expected to complete three of the tasks and bring them into school to share with the rest of the class. Work is often used for display, so we have to try our best to produce something amazing! A copy of our homework for the term can be found here. homework grid Summer

Mrs Burnett sends our spellings home every Tuesday for us to practise ready for our Spelling Bingo on a Monday. She is really pleased that so many of us are remembering to spell words correctly in our written work too.
