Welcome to Elder Class!
Our theme for this term is Inventors & Inventions!
Throughout this theme we will be exploring different inventors and inventions and thinking about the impact these people and their inventions have had on our world. In English we will be looking at a novel called 'The Invention of Hugo Cabret' which is a text that will keep you guessing and intrigued as to what is going to happen next and what invention will be created in the book.
In history we will be looking at why so many new discoveries were made in the early Islamic world as well as diving back into history to explore what some of these new discoveries were and how they still impact our world today. I wonder if you know of any discoveries which were made in this time period already?
Our RE units this half term will focus on why Christians sing in worship and then moving onto exploring faith through a wide range of artwork.
Our art unit will consist of looking at animation through digital media, collage and drawing using similar techniques to the drawings in our English novel. The artist we will focus on is Nick Park- do you know what he is famous for? I wonder if you can find out ready for our art unit.
In science will be carrying out lots of practical investigations with elements of WOW science thrown in and we will be focusing on Earth & Space looking at facts and adding to our knowledge with information which is 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.
