Welcome to Elder Class - Mr Gawne

Welcome to the Y6 Elder Tree Class Page. Please find lots of information on this page about what we have been learning about in school. While school is closed, it is important you try really hard to keep yourself busy using activities from your home learning packs, activities set on the google classroom (please see the login details letter attached to this page) and by using any links or websites that you can find on here.

If you require any extra information aside from what you can find on the website - please do not hesitate to get in touch using our class twitter feed (see below for details) or by commenting on the google classroom for Elder Tree Class.

** PE this term will be on a Friday afternoon for indoor and then on a Tuesday afternoon for outdoor, however it would be useful if children had their kits in throughout the week incase of any changes.**

Stay safe everyone.

Kind Regards,    Mr. Gawne

Spring Term - This term our topic takes a geographical focus as we learn all about continents around the world and a range of geographical skills. We will start the topic by taking a fieldtrip out into our local area and then branching further afield when learning about the Northern / Southern Hemisphere, Antarctica, OS Maps, Compass Points and lines of Longitude / Latitude. In addition, we will supplement our learning with some history work on learning about key historical explorers of the world; including Ernest Shackleton.
