Badgers Class 
Term 1

Classroom News

Welcome to Badgers Class! We are all getting to know each other and having fun learning. Term 1 at Sunny Bank definitely has something for everyone!

English and Topic

Badgers are off to a fantastic start in term one! In this term’s English lessons, students are really enjoying reading and discussing “Ug: Boy Genius Of The Stone Age And His Search For Soft Trousers”. They’ve worked successfully in groups, performed role plays, described characters and even planned their very own exciting “Ug” adventure. In topic, our eager students will be exploring the Stone Age – so they can relate to Ug and his quest for soft trousers.


In maths, students are diving deep into the very foundations of mathematics – place value. Maths books are rapidly filling up with all their neatly presented activities and investigations.


Sunny Bank students love science and they won’t be disappointed when during the term we investigate something that is all around us – light.

RE Badgers have begun to study God – a topic that has them thinking deep thoughts, sharing experiences and asking excellent questions.


Our PE day this term is Tuesday. All children should have named plimsolls, T-shirt and shorts. PE kits should remain in school all week. On PE days, please remove any jewellery, thank you.

Maths Extra Help

I offer maths help every Weds. from 12:30 to 12:55 in Badgers class, for year 3 and 4 students.

Design Club

I run Design Club every Thurs. from 12:30 to 12:55 in Badgers class, for year 3 and 4 students



Every Monday, Badgers visit the school library. They love their books! So, please read with your child daily; it is so valuable and vital to their progress. If you could please write a comment in their reading record every time they read to you, this will help us to choose books with the right challenge for your child. The book can be a school book or one they already have at home. Thank you for supporting our reading.

Wall of Fame

Please encourage your child to create work for the Badgers’ Wall of Fame! Two points are awarded for each contribution!

Maths Working Wall

Please encourage your child to create “Place Value” posters for our working wall. Five points are awarded for each poster!

Times Tables

Badgers have a voracious appetite for learning! So please help them practice at home. You could test them or have them do some online activities.

I look forward to working with you this year. If you have any questions or concerns, please make an appointment to see me.

Mr. Straughan

To be the best we can be
