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.
Write a description of a new chocolate room.
Keep a diary using 24hr clock for a week.
Bake a cake and write the recipe on your blog.
Design a Christmas decoration for your tree.
Write a story about a naughty elf.
