Welcome to The Elms
We are a Year 5 class with 16 pupils.
Our Class Teachers are Miss Apps and Mr Pillans
Our 1:1 Teaching Assistant is Miss Douglas.
We have PE on a Thursday morning and Forest School on a Monday afternoon.
Homework will be set on a Thursday and should be submitted by the following Tuesday.
Our history topic this term is America, including John Smith and the War for Independence. During the topic we will investigate the life of John Smith, learn about Pocahontas, find out about the Boston Tea Party and discover how the USA gained independence from the British. Later in the term we will learn about how American architects blended many European styles to create unmistakable 'New World' architecture.
Our science focus is Properties and Changes of Materials. We will revise our previous learning on terminology and properties of everyday materials before investigating both thermal and electrical conductivity. We will then study changing state and mixtures, including how to recover substance. Finally we will discover why some changes are reversible but some are non-reversible.
