Staying Safe Day

On Friday 10th February it was staying safe day. We learnt about mental health and anti bullying. We talked about having an imaginary safe place, so if we are feeling angry or upset we can calm ourselves by thinking of our safe place.

Mono prints

In Badger class we have been learning about Mono prints in Art. We have been using oil pastels to experiment with line and colour. We used carbon copy paper to make our own mono prints.


This week in Badger class we have been writing poems about an animal we would like to bring to school. We wrote a class poem about bringing a monkey to school. We then wrote our own poems. 

Rhythm pattern

This week in computing we explored rhythm patterns and pulse. We created our own rhythm pattern using counters and our hands. We clapped and clicked our pattern. We then used Chrome Music lab to make our own rhythms. We enjoyed listening to the rhythms we created. 

How to be a play buddy

On Wednesday Badger Class worked with the Sports partnership and learnt how to be play buddies. We are looking forward to teaching and playing these games with the younger children.
