Class Elm 2021-2022

Welcome to Elm Class

Mrs Weaver  and myself are looking forward to the year ahead, and working with your child and yourself. During the Autumn Term we will also be joined by Miss Penfold, who is embarking on her journey to becoming a Primary School Teacher and will be with us as part of her Schools Direct course. 
 
If you have any questions, queries, or concerns  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 2021
We begin the Autumn Term focussing on the topic 'Marvellous Me' . As part of our learning we will be exploring the human body and the five senses. We will also learn about the  different feelings and emotions we may experience as we engage with the story 'The Colour Monster." 
Each week your child will be given weekly homework linked to the Maths and English learning taking place in the classroom. Alongside the weekly homework your child is invited to complete optional homework challenges linked to our topic.
