Elder Class News

14th February 2019

Before Christmas, Elder class were historians, finding out about a famous lady called Florence Nightingale. Through carrying out their own research beforehand, the children knew what she was famous for.

They enjoyed reading Lauren Child’s story called Who is Afraid of the Big Bad Book.

This half term we have been finding out about the Arctic environment and the animals that live there. The children have once again produced some fantastic homework projects and Mrs Waters is very impressed with the children’s hard work.

In Maths we are learning to tell the time in 5 minute intervals and have made our own clocks to help us. Keep practising! We are working hard to explain clearly how we know what time it is.

In Art we are looking at the work of an artist called Andy Goldsworthy. He uses lots of natural resources in his work and we have made some of our own examples too.
