Welcome to Elm Class.
We are a Year 1/2 class who are encouraged to be confident and independent learners. We aim to develop a growth mindset and use this when undertaking challenges.
English and maths lessons focus on developing key skills through a variety of practical games and written activities. Year 1 and Year 2 work together on a rolling programme for our theme lessons. Each half term is focused around a different theme to engage and motivate the children.
Our theme this half term is ‘Growth and Green Fingers’. As part of this topic, we will be looking at our local area, using maps and starting to find out all about plants.
Uniform: Please ensure all uniform is labelled with your child’s name including PE kits and coats.
PE kits need to be in school every day. Please provide your child with black shorts, black pumps and a white t-shirt. If your child wears earrings please remove these on PE days (Tuesday and Thursday) or if not possible, could we ask for plasters to be sent with your child to cover their ears with.
Please send in a labelled water bottle that your child can use throughout the school day.
Read for the stars!
The initiative Read for the Stars will be continuing this half term. The initiative asks children to read a minimum of 4 times per week (from Thursday to Thursday). Adults at home are asked to ensure that if their child reads, they sign their reading record as proof of this reading. If your child gains 4 or more signatures in a week, they will earn a star.
This is again a very busy half term. Please refer to the newsletters for key dates.
If you have any concerns or worries, please do not hesitate to come and speak to us before or after school.
