Class Elm 2019-2020

Welcome to Elm Class
As we start the new school year our learning will centre around the topic 'Marvellous Me' and involve us learning lots about the human body and our senses as we explore the key question 'How do we work?' 

Each Friday your child will bring home their weekly homework which will be linked to the teaching and learning within the classroom. The homework may involve your child engaging with an interactive game,  worksheet, a small practical task for them to complete or even a board game type activity which they have to play with you. We ask that homework is returned the following Wednesday to allow us enough time to mark your childs homework and prepare their new homework. Alongside this the children can choose if they would like to complete some of the homework challenges.  

As a class we really value parent involvement and from time to time will be inviting parents in to share our learning. If any parents have a particular skill or job role which they would like to share with the children or you would like to offer their time to assist with classroom activities, listening to children read etc, please do let us know.

 If you have any questions, queries, or concerns then please do communicate through your child’s link book or speak to myself or one of the classroom staff . You can also send me an email or  book a short appointment to meet with me before or after school.
