Red Deer Class

Red Deer have had a brilliant half-term learning all about the Victorians and how they completely revolutionised our country. We learnt all about horrors that happened in the Workhouse and wrote our own diary entries as a Victorian Street child. We also looked at the fabulous inventions from the Victorian time- they indeed were responsible for the industrial revolution and inventions such as the telephone! The children also have been looking in detail in RE at the 10 commandments, why these were so important for Moses and the impact they have on our world today. In PE we have been improving our swimming skills and are determined that all children will be able to swim 25m without touching the floor. We also have enjoyed our Football skills lessons and have learnt lots of evasion skills from the Ipswich town coach. Furthermore, we really enjoyed our Parliament week, where we looked at democracy and the huge impact that the Suffragettes made on Great Britain. We also loved working out for Children in Need and are very much looking forward to doing some cooking ready for our Christmas Fayre!

Home learning is sent home on a Wednesday and is expected back in by Monday.
At Elveden we encourage reading and expect the children to read everyday and to have it recorded in their diaries. If this is done they get a raffle ticket to go into the draw which takes place at the end of term.
