Class Elm 2020-2021: YEAR 1

Welcome to Elm Class
 
 
Mrs Weaver and myself are looking forward to this year and working with  both your child and yourself. In place of the usual Meet the Teacher meeting I have recorded a short video below to provide you with an insight into what Elm Class has to offer. 
 
If you have any questions, queries, or concerns regarding the points mentioned in the video or at any point during the year please do not hesitate to get in touch. Please communicate through your childs link book or via email. If you would rather discuss your queries then please send an email to arrange a short telephone appointment with myself before or after school.

Autumn Term 2020 
We begin the Autumn Term with the topic 'The Enchanted Forest' which will involve us focussing on Traditional Tales including 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff' , 'Hansel and Gretel' and 'Little Red Riding Hood'. As part of this topic we will also be  using our senses to explore the schools woodland area, planting bulbs and identifying different  woodland trees.

What a lovely few days we have had in Elm Class. The children have undertaken the transition in their stride and are settling well in their new classroom. They are enjoying exploring their new learning environment and building up a familiarity with the rules and expectations.

Today we took part in our first PE session. The children changed into their PE kits with minimal support
and had a great time learning to play the game 'Dishes and Domes'.
