Hello Elder!

Well done on a brilliant first couple of weeks back at school! I have been so impressed with how you have settled back into the daily routine and are participating positively in your learning!

Star Work of the Week

Welcome back to the wonderful celebration of Elder's great learning!

We had a great (and messy) Friday this week making our own versions of houses from Early Civilisations.

There were so many amazing models to choose from and I will be adding them all next week to our picture gallery, however, one did stand out for the thought they had put into creating not only an authentic structure outside, but in! Due to glue gun privileges being Mrs Drury's I did help with ladder construction, but I was only told what to do as the concept was all their own. Well done Evie and Alannah!




Writing: Biographies. Learning our model text and exploring the skills needed to write a biography including punctuating sentences and clauses, writing in chronological order in past tense, and using a range of time adverbials.

We love reading here at The Pines and look forward to hearing all about what they have read each day!

Children now have a reading book that they can take home. Please read with them and sign their reading records at least four times each week. (For tips with reading with older children, please see below) Once they have finished a book, or are ready for a change, they simply need to place it in the classroom returns tray, for quarantining and then choose another fantastic read!

Home Learning

There is no home learning project this half term as we all may need a little bit of a break from learning at home!

However, our big question focusing on comparing early civilizations to Britain at the same point in history means that if you want to investigate beyond the Maya and the Islamic Goldern Age, feel free to let me know of any interesting research you complete!


Also, remember to keep practising your spellings and the Year 5&6 ones below. Use the recommend website section on this page for help.
