Badgers have been inspired by our new topic 'Miranda the Castaway' this week. We began the week stranded on a desert island with only a tarpaulin for shelter! It was very windy and at times we thought our shelter might blow away! As the week has progressed the children have explored the story more resulting in some beautiful writing in the form of messages in bottles and descriptive pieces about Miranda's surroundings. What a busy first week back!

Badgers finished up our Spring topic by mind mapping all the words we could think of that reminded us of spring. These were then used to inspire our acrostic poem writing. We also did a piece of writing to explain how the weather changes in spring and how this helps the plants to grow.
