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
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 a week are expected in your child’s reading record.
Homework will be sent out in the first week of term. As last year, the work should be completed and returned on the second Wednesday. If your child achieved 30 reads they will receive a prize for their
(and your) hard work.
As we continue looking at our topic of ‘What did the Romans ever do for us?’ we are looking forward to our special time traveling visitors on to arrive on Wednesday 7th March. The children will be able to attend school that day dressed as Celt villagers, and will participate in a range of activities throughout the day including looking at real Roman artefacts, practising Roman Army drills, playing Roman games and drama activities. It is a fantastic day, look out for the pictures on the website.
In English the children will be creating a guidebook of how to be a good Roman soldier,
maths will be working on division and linking it to fractions.
P.E lessons will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays so a full P.E kit (black/ white shorts, white t-shirt and pumps) will be required. Kits are taken home every half term for washing. As the weather begins to become more inclement, children can wear an unbranded, dark-coloured tracksuit for outdoor games. Please do not allow your child to
bring in football kits for PE.
