Hello Badger Class.
It has been lovely seeing some of Badger Class back this last week. We have been working hard recapping some of our English and Maths skills, doing lots of physical activity both in and out of the class as well as super artwork and cooking!! For those of you who are not coming back to school this term, I hope you are all okay and managing to do some work at home as well as getting lots of fresh air and exercise.
I am still updating Google Classroom each week with resources and ideas for you to try and will continue to do so up until the end of term. Home learning packs for anyone who would like them are being photocopied and left in the box outside the school gates for you to collect them when it is convenient. Any other queries or questions just let the office know and we’ll do our best to help.
BBC Bitesize Daily Lessons
The BBC is continuing with their daily Home Learning lessons. Bitesize has 150 new lessons every week to keep you on track with your learning. You'll find daily lessons for home schooling in Maths and English for every year group, as well as regular lessons in Science, History, Geography and more. The home schooling lessons have been created with teachers and other educational experts. They feature a mix of videos, animations, practice activities, quizzes and games.
