Letters From Lily

Each month Lily Oxford writes for the Marnhull Messenger.

Lily gives readers an insight into life in Badgers class, we are all extremely proud of Lily and her writing.

And Relax!

Badgers have taken part in a “under the water” themed cosmic yoga section.

We tried numerous positions and happily the children reported feeling very calm and relaxed.

In Flanders Fields

Flanders Fields by John McCrae has inspired Badgers to create some ‘blackout poetry’, this is a process where you take a body of text, this could be from a book, magazine or a poem and some of the words are redacted or blacked out, the idea being that the words you leave visible create a new body of text in their own right.  As you can see, we also created some lovely art in the process.

One Last Dip.

Our last few sessions prior to the winter closure of the pool.

We focused on water safety and rescue skills with Mrs Coling.

Our final session was full of relays and fun.


Badgers Class have been enjoying a virtual coding workshop led by the lovely folk at Dorset Tech.

Using ipads and the Edublocks website the children were able to start creating a web page – designing front pages, titles/headings/changing the font/colour and inserting images.

It was great fun and we are looking forward to exploring this further in future computing lessons.

Curious as to what an average Badgers week looks like?
