Welcome to Elm Class.
Children in Elm Class are all in Year Three or Year Four.
Our teacher is Mrs Whitfield and she is assisted by Mrs Atkinson and Mrs Moon.
We do guided reading, English and maths in the morning. This term we are looking forward to improving our grammar with the Active English program. We will also be continuing with IPEELL. Our first memorable experience will be listening to a Roman soliloquy. In maths, amongst other things, we will be making sure that we learn our tables. Year Three will need to know their 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 8x, and 10x tables. Year Four need to know all their tables by the end of the year.
For our topics, we are now following the Cornerstones curriculum. In Term One we will be following 'I am warrior!' which is all about the Roman invasion. Term Two sees us following 'Playlist' which is based around music.
We will be swimming in Term One so please make sure that your child brings their swimming kit every Monday. They will need an outdoor kit on a Wednesday when Mr Wright will be teaching them.
In R.E. they will be discussing Christian belief and lifestyle with Mrs Smith. Elm now have a Reflection Corner where children can be quiet and reflect. They will be able to think about the kind deeds of others to create a class friendship tree.
