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.
Our topic this half term is ‘Mad For Manchester’ where we will be learning about the growth of Manchester and the surrounding areas during the Victorian era. The class will investigate how the cotton industry effected local people and how ‘Cottonopolis’ became one of the richest cities in the world. Pupils will take a detailed look at the life of Victorian children in Bury and will study local and national heroes of the Victorian age including Dr Barnado and Lord Shaftesbury. We will be reading two monumental Victorian books, Jane Eyre and Oliver Twist, and completing work based on these.
On Wednesday 11th October, the children will be venturing into Manchester to explore the City Centre and take part in two workshops, one at MOSI and the other at The John Ryland’s Library. To heighten the adventure we will be travelling by Metrolink.
