Welcome to Elder Class!
Our theme that we will be focusing on for this term is Food Glorious Food!
The first theme we will be exploring in Elder is ‘Food Glorious Food’. In English we will be looking at some traditional tales including legend stories and diving deeper into the world of Food Glorious Food by focusing on texts with historical settings and looking at the text- Oliver Twist. I wonder how many of you have seen this story as a film already? In Geography we will be looking at where out food comes from focusing on physical and human geography, different climates and economic activity all over the world and thinking about why our food comes from certain parts of the world. Our RE units this term will start by focusing on significant women in the Bible and then linking this to significant women in our world today; our Christmas unit is looking at and comparing the Christmas story in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke. We will also be looking at colour blending in art and celebrating culture by making savoury snacks in DT. Our computing will focus on online safety, how to keep safe online and why this is so important. We will then also challenge ourselves with coding and spreadsheets. Science will focus on materials and their properties and changing materials and we will be carrying our lots of practical experiments with elements of WOW science added to the mix and we will also look at Earth & Space before Christmas and focus on facts which are literally ‘out of this world’!
Below is lots of information that you will find useful about the topics we are focusing on in class, information about spelling and homework and some useful websites that your children can go on at home to practice various skills.
