Welcome to Elder Class!
After a tough 2 years, we are hoping for a more settled year in school and plan to make it an exciting year for all!
In Elder, we are a mixed age year 5 and 6 class, taught by Miss Harrison and supported by Mrs Toft.
This first half term, we will be kicking off with some interesting and exciting topics. In English, we will be introducing children to 2 fantastic authors (Michael Morpurgo and Philip Pullman) whilst developing our reading and writing skills. Our first unit in maths is Place Value and will begin by reviewing prior learning and embedding the maths foundation needed throughout the year.
In Art, we will be looking at artist Natalie Graham and her watercolour animal work to inspire our own wire sculptures. Geography will be focused on England, looking at both the human and physical geographical features and answering the question 'What makes England a good place to live?'.
In science, we will begin by focusing on 'Animals including humans' and link this to work on 'living things and their habitats' throughout the year. Our first RE unit focuses on the old testament and explores the lives of significant women from the bible.
All in all . . . an exciting and busy first half term!
