December in Primary ELS


As we approach the end of Term 1, we would like to thank the students for their hard work and dedication. The ELS team would also like to thank the parents for their ongoing support; it is essential to our programme.

We would also like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy and safe Christmas and New Year. We are looking forward to seeing the ELS group again in 2018 with the same enthusiasm and positive attitude that they have shown this year.


Lastly, please look at the appropriate material below and continue to read the ELS homework books to be ready for next term.



Connected Learning
In Term 2, the children will start exciting new units of study.

Year 3- Ancient Egyptians


Artifacts and remains give us an insight into ancient civilisations and allow us to understand how we are connected to the past. Today's Egyptian society is fundamentally different from the Ancient one but it still benefits from its legacy.


Who were they? How do we know about them? What is mummification? Click on the videos below to get a head start.

  



Year 4- Vikings


The Year 4 students will learn about the Vikings. The Vikings were amazing sailors, explorers and warriors.

Where did they come from and when did they settle in Britain? Find out about Viking warriors. What weapons did they use and how did they fight at sea? What were Viking families like and what beliefs did they have? To start answering these important questions, check out the links below!

  


Year 5- Life and Death, Young and Old

 

The Y5 students will learn about the fascinating topic of Life and Death. No matter who we are, we all have one thing in common – we are growing older every day. Let’s consider the circle of life and how we make the most of our lives.

What is the life cycle of a plant? How do animals grow and change throughout their lives? Where did I come from? Start your learning by watching the videos below!

Year 6- Conflict

 

“War - what is it good for?” Throughout history humans have always fought and argued. Isn’t it time we stopped?


What is conflict and what causes it? What are the World Wars and why were they fought?
