Badgers and Seals- Enjoying our last week of term
We have enjoyed lots of fun activities this week to keep us busy on our last week of term like: Christmas crafts, making christingles, making calendars, Christmas maths treasure hunt and writing letters to Santa. We LOVED our Christmas party and speaking to Santa too, we even sang him a song from our Christmas show!
Badgers and Seals- 01.12.2020 – History
This week year 1 and 2 enjoyed exploring buildings and people from the past. Year 1 virtually listened to a visitor talking about life in the past and year 2 took part in a history hunt learning about buildings in Framwellgate Moor.
We couldn’t go out and visit these buildings in the community so we brought the history hunt to the classroom!

This week Badgers and Seals have been exploring a range of different types of poems. Today we looked at November Night Countdown and worked in groups to put actions to the poem. We performed our poems to the rest of the class! We even played a game where we had to only perform the actions and see if the rest of the class could guess which verse we had!

Year 2’s explored algorithms using a range of website links and looked at inputting instructions to make certain shapes as well as using some dbprimary games to apply their knowledge!

This week Honeybees have been learning all about spiders. We have put our funky fingers to the task of making our very own spiders, which are now hiding in our class spider web! We have also turned into bakers, we made our own spider Krispy cakes! We tried really hard to mix and stir the ingredients, then we used our wiggly fingers to shape our cakes into a spider shape, it was so much fun! As well as this, Honeybees turned their brain boxes on and labelled our own spider, we learnt what all the body parts of a spider were called. Our interesting fact of the week is that spiders actually have 8 eyes, we were all very shocked to learn this and couldn’t wait to share it with our grown ups at home. Overall this week, Honeybees have had a super creepy crawly week and we are now spider geniuses! – Mr Irwin
