Hello, welcome to our Elm Tree Class page. It is a pleasure to have your child in our class and I hope their time with me will be an enjoyable and stimulating experience. We will be participating in all sorts of learning, both indoors and outdoors, and there will be lots of photographs and information regularly added to keep you in touch with what we’ve been up to. So please remember to take a look every now and then, this will also be a great way to share our learning with your family and friends.
If you have any queries, questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to come and see me, my door is always open! Additionally, if you have any feedback about our page, it would be great to hear from you.
Autumn term 1 Topic
Our Topic this half term is Land Ahoy!
Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum! Get ready to take to the high seas and set sail in search of treasure! This half term, we’ll visit a boat yard, river or harbour to find out about boats and ships of all shapes and sizes. We’ll write about our visit, read information books, investigate amazing sea rescues and write postcards and poetry influenced by the sea. Our science skills will help us to understand how boats float and we’ll design and make model ships using a variety of materials. We’ll study paintings of boats and draw detailed pictures of our own. Our map reading skills will help us to identify different seas and oceans, and we’ll learn about famous sea explorers. Stories of pirates will inspire us to make pirate flags, treasure maps and fact files. We’ll even find out how to talk and sing like a pirate!
