Welcome to Elm Class 2018-19
We had a fantastic day out at Court Farm! Farmer Ed and Sarah looked after us very well. We saw some lambs that were only four hours old! We watched a cow being milked and even got to feed a lamb.
Vet Nurse Visit
Elm Class were fortunate to have a visit from Sam Brown, a vet nurse from Bristol University to help us launch our Amazing Animals topic. We learnt how to listen to a heart beat using the stethoscopes and Sam showed us how to bandage an animals leg. She also taught us the right way to handle some animals. We loved the real-life model animals she brought in!
Elm Class Communities Week
Elm Class have been busy learning about all the people who help us in both our school community and the wider community. We had visits from Mr Murphy, our site manager. and Mrs Brereton, our office manager and learnt about all the things they do to help us in school. We also welcomed Ms Chipchase, Mrs Carter and Mrs Penn in to our classroom to learn about the important jobs they do looking after older people and babies. We really enjoyed our visit from Tony and Amy, the local PCSOs, who brought in some uniform for us to try on. They even brought their car and we got to see the lights and listen to the siren. It was very loud!
The children have worked so hard learning the songs, actions and stage directions for our Nativity performance of Whoops-a-Daisy Angel. They were fantastic in all 4 performances and have made Mrs Tope very proud!
Writing writing everywhere!
The children have been very busy this half term and have seemed to have caught the writing bug! During their independent learning time, they have been very keen to practice writing the new sounds they have been learning.
