Elm Class

Welcome to Elm Class! 

 

Elm Class are always 'Ready, Respectful and Safe!'

 

 

Welcome back to school everyone! The children in Elm class have returned to school after the summer holidays and every single one of them have amazed me with how sensible, enthusiastic and hard working they have been in our new class! Please keep visiting this page throughout the year to find out about all of the amazing things that we have been enjoying learning about!

 

Please find some useful information below about Elm class:

 

Entering the classroom in the morning: Please ensure that your child enters their classroom on their own in the morning. Each child will enter their class through their classroom door and will then wash their hands.

 

P.E: Elm Class will have PE on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Your child can come to school in their PE kit on these days. They will stay in their PE kit all day and will not get changed in school. A P.E kit list can be found on the school website, should you need a reminder.

 

School Uniform: Could you please ensure your child’s school uniform and PE kit are clearly labelled with their name. It is impossible to return mislaid items of uniform if they are not clearly labelled.

 

Communication with Parents: Messages will mainly be sent out via MarvellousMe (please ensure you have the app downloaded), although we will send letters, emails and texts out as necessary. Also check the school’s website on a regular basis - you will find information on there about a wide range of things including: our class, diary dates, school policies and the children can access curriculum games and websites which will add to their learning in school.

 

Reading Books:  In KS1, reading books are issued and changed weekly on a Friday. Parents/carers are encouraged to read with their child regularly. We would appreciate your support with this and recommend that you spend some time at least three times a week reading with your child. Even a snatched five minutes is better than nothing! Please record each read in your child’s personal organiser on the relevant day, noting the book title and page number you and your child have read to. Feel free to also write a comment. It is important to share the same book with your child over several days, so they can create their own narrative, adapt the story, make predictions, learn the keywords and for you to ask comprehension questions when finished. We are currently in the process of assessing the children’s reading and books will be issued next week.

 

Personal Organisers:  At the front and back of your child’s organiser are some pages which we kindly ask that you sign.  If you leave a message in your child’s personal organiser or book bag please ensure that either you or your child brings this to my attention as neither are checked on a daily basis.

What have we been learning in Elm Class?

 

Have a look at some of the photos and videos below to see the amazing things that we have been doing!

Elm Class sing Ring-a-ring o' roses

As part of our Great Fire of London experience day we also learnt about the plague. Some people claim the nursery rhyme 'Ring-a-ring-o'-roses' is about the plague:

The 'roses' are the red blotches on the skin.
The 'posies' are the sweet-smelling flowers people carried to try to ward off the plague.
'Atishoo' refers to the sneezing fits of people with pneumonic plague.
'We all fall down' refers to people dying! Oh no!

The flames spread during the Great Fire of London!
