Dear all,

Welcome to the Elder Class Pages. We are a small, but enthusiastic, mixed-age class of 16 children comprising of Year 5 and 6. This term, the Year 5 children are reading 'The Promise'' by Nicola Davies and a variety of Space genres linked to our  'Steps to Read' scheme. The Year 6 will spend the next four weeks revising for their SATs tests, which begin on Monday 13th May. 

Other topics we are studying include:

Mathematics - Shape, with the focus on angles. 

Literacy - The Promise - by Nicola Davies. Revision of Reading Comprehension, Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar

Science - Engineering

Music- Year 5, singing with Stoneyhurst College. Y5 and 6, Battle of the Bands, Freedom to Improvise. 

Computing - Creating Media - Introducion to Vector Graphics. 

Art - Architecture - looking at the designs of architects and making our own architectural model. 

History - The Trojan Horse. 

R.E - What is the nature and character of God?

P.E - Swimming (Year 5 only) Rounders and Tennis.

PSHE - Aspirations and Goal Setting, Managing Risk, Looking after my Mental Health.

Homework in the Elder Class consists of learning some weekly spellings on EdShed, written Numeracy questions and daily reading for 15 minutes. Homework folders are sent out on a Thursday with our weekly class newsletter, and should be completed and brought back into school by the following Wednesday. Anyone who is struggling to complete their homework is very welcome to join our Homework Club on a Monday night (or Wednesday lunchtime if not completed!)

If you are struggling with any aspect of the work, or have any questions, please get in touch via School Spider or call in to see me after school. 

Many thanks,

Mrs Winn.
