Welcome to Badgers Class!
We will be updating regularly with lots of exciting information about our learning.
This half term, year 5 have been learning all about Doncaster Racecourse as part of our Community & Heritage topic. We have studied the amazing story behind the St Leger Festival and the important role of the Racecourse during WW1. Did you know that the first aviation meeting in Britain was held at Doncaster Racecourse? Check out our vintage-style posters we have designed to advertise this historic event!
South Yorkshire Aircraft Museum
Who knew that such a hidden gem was right on our doorstep? The children had a wonderful time exploring the aviation history of our local area. From WW1 artefacts to a replica of a plane from the first aviation meeting in Doncaster, the children thoroughly enjoyed this hands-on experience. Their manners and positive behaviour also impressed the staff at the museum so well done Year 5!
As part of our topic, 'Time Traveller', the pupils in Badgers class have been creating their own self-portraits in the style of Pop Artist, Andy Warhol. First we practised sketching our self-portraits, paying attention to the shape of our unique features and making sure our face was in proportion. We then experimented with fluorescent powder paint to add bright and vibrant blocks of colour to our portraits. Check out our polished pieces below...Can you tell who is who?
