Elder Class Updates

Welcome to Elder class, year 6


A letter has gone home about our class trip to Golden Wood for the final Seed to Tree session. We do not require consent forms or medical forms but the children need to be dressed appropriately on the day. Any helpers would be greatly appreciated. Please contact me if you would like to help.

This week

In DT, Elder class continued with their WWII hankies. They are decorated and are now being sewn. Superb creativity.

Elder class planned their own investigation in science this week. They were investigating whether different materials were attracted to a statically-charged balloon. There was great cooperation evident and lots of motivation too.

Look at all the books we received from our sponsored read event! All classes received lovely new books to read and share. Well done to all of our readers who took part in the event and helped to add to every class’s library.

In DT, Elder class practised their sewing skills ready to sew a message onto their World War I decorated hankies. The thimbles were out and levels of concentration were high! Fabulous focus Elders and great sewing skills.
