A very warm welcome to Elder,
This year we will undertake the curriculum in a fun and stimulating way, providing opportunities for all children to excel in an inclusive and safe environment. We will look at the world around us and try to make every topic we cover an adventure and a journey.
Reading and Homework
Books will be given out in the first week. Please read with your child every night. We will continue to change books on a daily basis. Please encourage your child to read their book and discuss the events with you to consolidate their understanding of the text. Three signatures per week are expected in your child’s reading record. Homework will be sent out on a Friday and will be returned on the second Wednesday. This will give two full weekends to complete the work.
As summer is finally upon us, we are going to begin our localities study where we will compare our hometown of Bury with the seaside town of Llandudno. We hope to spend some time within the area, studying what makes Bury unique and why it has become a successful market town. We will then compare what we have found out to Llandudno and why the North Wales town has become such a popular holiday
destination. We will be visiting Llandudno to experience the town first hand and hopefully enjoying the sunny weather.
Alongside our topic we will be looking at time in maths using both 12 and 24 hour digital clocks as well as analogue time.
