Class Elm 2022 - 2023

Monday 23rd January 2023
 
Hi Elm Class,
 
As we are not able to come into school, please complete the activities that I have planned for you. I have uploaded a letter for you all to read, as well as the phonics sheet. 
I would also like you to read the books that you have in your reading packet with an adult. They can ask you questions about the book and you can discus what you like and dislike about them. 
 
I hope you enjoy the activities and home learning and I look forward to seeing you all soon!
 
Miss Davies and Mrs Weaver

Today Elm Class had a surprise visit from Eddie the Elf. He had covered the classroom in snow and was playing Christmas music! He made a big mess and I'm sure he will be on Santa's naughty list. 
 
The children then enjoyed a Christmas lunch with KS1, wearing their Christmas jumpers. 
 
It has been a very magical day!
