Elders Class update:
Friday 13th November 2020
The new term has kicked off really well. The children are loving our new topic: World War Two, and accompanying text: Letters from the Lighthouse, by Emma Carroll.
GUIDED READING: We have been reading the fantastic 'Letters from the Lighthouse' by Emma Carroll. The text has provoked lots of interesting discussion, linked to our World War Two topic. There have been lots of opportunities to practise inference skills, inferring characters' feelings and actions.
ENGLISH: All of our writing has been linked to Letters from the Lighthouse. The children have produced diary entries, recounting the experience of an air raid and written letters, exploring different perspectives on evacuation. Their engagement in the story and interest in the characters, has led to some absolutely fantastic writing.
MATHS: This term, we are working on fractions - recapping some of the Year 5 curriculum and moving the children onto the Year 6 specific fractions work. We have also started our maths interventions, with children sometimes being taken out of class to work in small groups with either the teacher or the TA. These sessions are a fantastic opportunity to for us to support children with their mathematics learning - addressing gaps and misconceptions, whilst also deepening their understanding of concepts.
TOPIC: The children really enjoyed our World War Two immersion days at the beginning of term. They experienced an 'air raid' with sound effects, sat underneath their desks or in our make-shift shelter in the corner of the classroom! We also looked at how the war began, the countries involved and some of Winston Churchill's most famous wartime speeches.
FRENCH: We have moved onto learning vocabulary to converse about the weather this term. We have begun with lots of oral rehearsal and will be moving onto listening, reading and writing activities.
