Welcome to Elves Class 2022 -2023
Hello! I am Mrs Maidment the years four and five teacher. You will also find two amazing teaching assistants in Elves class, Mrs Townsend and Mrs Prior.
Each day is full of fun learning! In the mornings, we concentrate on our English, including SPAG (spelling, grammar and punctuation). This is followed by our maths lesson, which includes daily mental maths sessions, timetables practise along with daily written arithmetic and problem solving.
Our topic this term is 'Being In My World'. This topic will be covered throughout English and our non-core subjects. Look out for Elves’ work later this term!
Here is a list of some of the other areas we will be learning about this term!
Rivers and mountains
An art study of Frida Kahlo
Properties and their changing materials

Every week your homework will be:
- play TTRockstars (aim for 10 minutes, 2-3 times a week)
- read three times, aloud to an adult
Please make sure your child has their P.E kit, reading books and drink bottle in school daily.
Elves had a wonderful time this afternoon looking at dandelions from their roots to the flower. Sketching every part. Finished off with hot chocolate, marshmallows and a sing song around the fire. We are all looking forward to next week.
Welcome to Elves class.
I am Mrs Rendell, the class teacher who is supported daily by two amazing ta's - Mrs Robson and Mrs Prior. We are a year 4/5 class.
In the mornings, we complete daily mental maths sessions using a fun passport as well as completing daily written arithmetic and daily multiplication tests, followed by a maths lesson.
In literacy, we are focussing our work on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory which will include, description, reading, tasting and designing.
Our afternoons are when we do non-core subjects including science, art, ICT, DT, projects, history and geography. Where possible, we complete our learning in a cross-curricular, topic-based fashion.
This term, in history, we are looking at Anglo-Saxons. Our RE topic is based on Christmas and Symbols.
This term we will focus our homework on TTrockstars, blog, reading and edshed. The children can choose a topic that interests them to do at home, if they wish, and can bring to school to share with the class. This is optional but I know how some of you like to do extra work.
I have included a list below of home learning that your child can do if they are off from school isolating or they want to earn extra housepoints. Below is a list of ideas that are relevant to our learning in class.
Research Anglo Saxons and create a poster.
