Elm Class

We have harvested our potatoes!

We have made our own pirate ship!

Captain Tempest came to visit today - we helped him find the Jolly Roger flag.

Today we made butter (ask me to tell you what we did!)

We have planted some potatoes

We wanted to find out which tube would roll the farthest!

Today we had to chose someone to work with who we don't know very well

Dragon dancing was really good fun!

We had an Intrasport Competition and Red Group (The Quantocks) won!

As part of our topic 'Shake Rattle and Roll' we learnt to tap dance and move like a penguin.

Today we had a special visitor - Father Christmas!

Thank you to FOSS who organised Father Christmas' visit, accompanied the children, and took the photographs - you are amazing!


The FOSS members who helped wanted me to pass on how well behaved and polite the children were during their visit.  Well done Elm Class!

Our amazing nativity

Our shape fire engine!

Tila, Gabs, Darcie, Alicia, Mason and Lily-May worked together to make this fantastic fire engine.  They used 9 circles, 6 squares, 3 rectangles, but no triangles!

Fire Engine Comes to Staplegrove Church School

We had a very exciting afternoon today when Red Watch came to visit us at school. We were allowed to climb inside the fire engine and then squirt water with the hoses. It was great fun!


Back in the classroom the Firemen taught us about fire safety. We watched one of the Firemen get dressed into his fire fighting gear and we asked lots of questions.


Our challenge was to find out where the smoke alarms are in our houses.

Our visit from the Vet

Mr Wingfield came to visit us today from Deane Vets.  He was very interesting and told us how to tell if our pets were feeling poorly.  Can you spot the picture of us doing 'sad cat' ears?


Some of the children dressed up as different types of vet, and we acted out a day in the life of a vet.


Mr Wingfield answered our questions.  We found out that he had once treated an elephant!

Here are some photographs of us learning in Elm class!
