Welcome to Elm Class!
Mr Stratton, Mrs Mee and Mrs Wright all teach in Elm Class.
Welcome to Elm Class's page. This page will give you information about what the children are learning at school.
Please use the links below to find out about different topics.
Autumn Term 1
This half term our topic is Super Senses
This half term's topic is all about our super senses. We will be learning about parts of our body such as bones, joints and our senses in science. We will make superhero finger puppets and clay models in Design Technology linked to superheroes. In History, we will be learning about changes in living memory by comparing our toys to our parents' and grandparents' toys. We will link our senses to Autumn and learn about the changing seasons. In RE, we will think about belonging, building into belonging to different religions.
P.E. days are Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please can you ensure that children have both an indoor and outdoor kit available for these days. Can children with earrings either have them taken out at home or be provided with tape to keep them safe during these lessons please. Outdoor P.E is on a Thursday, weather permitting, so outdoor P.E. kit can be either brought in that day or left in school.
Your child is encouraged to change their reading book after lunch on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. It is really valuable for children to read the same book multiple times - when they have struggled with a word on the first time through, reading it for a second time on a separate occasion helps to embed the word in their memory.
We will aim to hear the children read in a guided reading session every week. At other times in the week the children may be heard by other adults within school. Children are also reading during daily phonics session and often in English and cross curricular lessons too.
