Welcome to Badger Class!


Badger Class is the name of our Year 4 class. Our teachers are Miss Pizzey (Monday-Thursday) and Mr Vaughton (Friday) and our teaching assistants are Mrs Coe (every morning plus Monday and Tuesday afternoon), Mrs Souter (every morning), Mrs Betts (Monday-Wednesday all day) and Mrs Borley (Thursday and Friday afternoon).


We try to do lots of fun things in Badger Class, whilst believing that the ability to rise to a challenge, be independent and be responsible for ourselves and our actions are key skills in order to succeed.


We cover a range of topics over the course of the year including:

  • From the Andes to the Amazon (South America and the Amazon Rainforest)
  • Bright Sparks (Electricity, Programming and Robots)
  • Clash of the Titans (Ancient Greece)
  • Age of Empire (Ancient Rome)
  • Food Glorious Food (Healthy eating, the digestive system, farming and fair trade)
  • Spies and Spitfires (The home front in World War 2)


We try to organise trips and events linked to our topics; for example visiting Duxford Imperial War Museum as part of our topic on World War 2 and a visit to the Suffolk School Farm and Country Fair linked to our Food Glorious Food topic.


We take part in Forest Schools activities each Thursday afternoon in the second-half of each term.


In addition, we are lucky enough to be the year group which benefits from Suffolk’s Wider Opportunities music scheme. This means we all learn to play an instrument (currently a clarinet) throughout our time in Badger Class. We perform in assemblies to the rest of the school, and to our parents, at different points in the year as well as getting the opportunity to join other schools in a celebration of music towards the end of the academic year.


I endeavour to send home a 'Badger Bulletin' at the end of each week to keep you up-to-date with what we have been doing in class and to give suggestions of how you can help your child at home.
