Welcome to Elm Class 2018-19
Elm Class have really enjoyed their Forest School sessions this term. They have been learning about minibeasts and have been building bug hotels.
British Values Week
Elm Class were greeted by dragon footprints in class during British Values week! There was a note from the dragon, who had kidnapped our class bear, Stanley. So we learned about St George and wrote letters to him to ask for his help with capturing the dragon. We also enjoyed learning all about the Queen and decided to host a British tea party for the children in Stepping Stones Pre-school. We made fairy cakes, bunting and crowns. We had a great time! We also took part in a St George and the dragon dance workshop, where we told the story of St George through dance.
Summer Term 2019
Please see our curriculum jigsaw to see what we'll be learning this term.
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.
