Elm Class has been working extremely hard since the beginning of the school year. I am deeply proud of all the resilience this group has shown especially during our online learning in the Spring term.
Throughout Maths, we have worked on place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. The next steps we want to challenge ourselves with more is solving one- and two-step word problems. We will also be focusing on money, time, fractions, shapes and statistics and how all can be used in our daily activities.
Our class has also shown a great amount of knowledge during our autumn topic unit of rainforests; we learnt about the layers of the rainforest, different animals and plants which live in this habitat and why the issue of deforestation plays such a vital role in our world. Throughout science, we understood the life cycle of a plant and what factors contribute to how plants can grow in their environments. We also learnt about more about animals and how their bodies and diets can differ amongst the animal kingdoms, including for humans.
With our Spring term quickly coming to an end, many members of our class showed immense interest when learning about the different Ages of history from the Palaeolithic Era to the Bronze Age. We explored how people lived during that time and compared how homes and routines were similar and different to modern times.
During Spring 1, we investigated the rock cycle through the different stages, the various materials that rocks are made from and how we use them in everyday life.
For RE, we will continue with Christianity and comparing the celebrations and traditions of other religions whilst in PSHE we will further develop our understanding of being safe and healthy.
