Summer Term 1 


Elves have another busy half-term ahead.  Here are some of the non-core curriculum areas that we will be covering this half term:



Elves will be keeping the history local this half-term and investigating the Amesbury Archer.  The children will visit the Salisbury Museum; they will take part in workshops which will enable them to build their knowledge of the Amesbury Archer.



The children will need their PE kit in school everyday.  They will take part in athletic  sessions with the PE coaches and with myself they will be learning how to play rounders.  




During art we will continue our learning from last term.  We will be learning about the artist Visothkakvei and looking how to add texture to our drawings.



We will be learning about data handling and looking how to represent data in different ways.



Our science lessons will involve investigating plants, the children will carry out experiments to find our what plants need to grow.  We will also explore the part that flowers play in the life cycle of flowering plants, including pollination, seed formation and seed dispersal.



Ideas for optional homework:


If you have the opportunity grow some vegetables in your garden.  

Use what you've learnt in art lessons to draw your own pictures at home.

Learn to tell the time.

Continue to learn your year group spellings.
































Welcome to Elves Class 2023 -2024


Hello! I am Mrs Maidment the years four and five teacher.  You will also find two amazing teaching assistants in Elves class, Mrs Corbett 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 in the autumn term is 'Our Mind'. Look out for Elves’ work later this term! 


Here is a list of some of the other areas we will be learning about in the autumn term!

Our history learning is 'The Stone Age to the Iron Age'.

In science, we will be learning about animals, including humans.  We will learn how animals, including humans, need the right types and amount of nutrition. We will also investigate that humans and some other animals have skeletons and muscles for support, protection and movement. 

During the autumn term our PE topics are football and gymnastics. 

In art, we will be trying to relax our minds by creating and drawing patterns. 

Our PSHE topic is 'Being In My World'. We will look at how attitudes and actions make a difference in a class team and know how good it feels to be included in a group. 


Every week your homework will be:

- spellings

- 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.

Why washing with soap is VERY important

Just a little demonstration of why washing your hands with soap is much more effective than using water alone. Remember the lesson we had from the scientists...
