Spring Term 2 2024
Elves have another busy half-term ahead. Here are some of the non-core curriculum areas that we will be covering this half term:
This will take place Monday afternoons. During these sessions the children will be carrying out fieldwork. They will consider issues and changes in their local area and they will identify what they would like to find out about. They will develop their own enquiry question, create data collection methods, collect data, analyse and present their findings.
Elves will be playing tennis and developing their orienteering skills, theses sessions will take place on Thursday afternoons and Friday mornings. Please note that some sessions will be outside so please make sure that you bring suitable PE clothing.
Design and Technology
The theme of study is cooking and nutrition. The children will develop their skills of a healthy diet, prepare and cook using a range of techniques. They will consider where food comes from and understand that not all food comes from the UK. They will consider seasonality and climate zones.
It could be a noisy half-term in Elves - we are learning about sound and vibration.
Ideas for optional homework:
Go for a walk and look for signs of spring in your local area. Be a geographer and see if you can identify the human and physical features in your area.
Create a fact sheet about sound and vibration.
With an adult, make a healthy snack and take a photo to share with the rest of the class.
Practice telling the time with both analogue and digital clocks.
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.
