Elm Autumn 1

During Autumn 1 we will be learning all about Traditional Tales with a Twist. We will be reading the book the Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig by Eugene Trivizas and looking at how the author has adapted a traditional tale and made it their own. The children will be developing their own story maps to create their own tales with a twist!

We will be learning all about castles in History and taking a closer look at the Battle of Hastings, why castles were built, what they were used for and how they designed to protect their inhabitants in battle.

In Science we will be exploring materials which will complement our DT topic this term which will be to design and build a house/home structure that is built to support and protect.

The children will continue with Physical Friday every Friday and will take part in both dance and multi-skills with their peer group.

We will support the children in Elm Class to flourish and place emphasis on them becoming independent learners where the children are able and confident to facilitate their own learning. The children have full access to our outdoor environment which is child led and most importantly, where learning has no limits.
