Welcome to the Elder Class page!
The Elder Class teacher is Miss Churchill, she is helped by Miss Mulla and Mrs Foolat (in the mornings). On Thursday afternoons Mrs Hough will be taking us for P.S.H.E..
Our P.E. days are on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please make sure that your child has their full P.E. kits in school and that their kit is labelled with their names.
What will we cover this half term?
Please see "Spr 1" to find out what will be covered this half term in Elder Class.
What we have covered so far can be seen in Autumn 1 and Aut 2.
Homework is set at the start of the half term and there is an activity for the children to complete each week. Homework books are due back every Thursday.
It is expected that the children read at least 3 times a week. They must read 3 times a week for 10 weeks in order to achieve the Bronze Reading Award. This year, the badges have year groups on them so there is a whole new set to collect!
Silver Awards will be awarded during the Spring Term for those who have achieved their Bronze Awards.
Adventures in Elder
Recently, an artist, called Hugh Templeton, has come to visit school. He taught us how to draw pyramids and it was an amazing morning!
As part of our Dimensions curriculum, we have been looking at Remembrance Day. We designed postcards and sent them to various care homes in the U.K. that had veterans living in them. We all enjoyed this activity and then used our Geography skills to find out where our postcards had traveled to!
We have used skills we learnt as part of our persuasive writing to create adverts for our School Winter Fair - check them out here!
