Spring Term 2017

English in Elm

This half term we will be focussing our English work around 'Quest' by Aaron Becker. Lat half term we foccussed on Aaron Becker's first book, 'Journey' this book is the sequel and the children can not wait for it. The book links perfectly into our topic work of UK and map skills. The children's writing outcomes for this unit of work are going to be a setting / character description, a letter and finally an adventure story. The children will recap through skills such as relative clauses, expanded noun phrases, bracket/dashes/ commas for parethesis and apostrophes for possession.



Elm's Topic

Our topic work this half term is all about 'The UK'. We will begin with looking into the basics of where the UK is, relative to the world. Week by week, the class will delve deeper and gain more knowledge and skills surrounding map work such as compass points, OS maps and coordinates (linking to maths)
