Love learning, life, one another and God


Welcome to Elm Class!

Autumn 1 KS1 Overview

Welcome to Elm Class

Elm Class loved participating in Robot Day this year! We had great fun building robots out of Lego all morning and then making our own robots from our junk modelling equipment in the afternoon! We had to make sure our robots had a moving part and lots of us did this using split pins, it was great to try something new and we were all really proud of our work!

Key Stage 1 visit Reverend Pauline

The children had a fantastic time as they visited Reverend Pauline in our wonderful church.  She told us all about the Bible and showed us several different examples of bibles.

Adrian Warrell visit

Year 1 loved their visit from Adrian Warrell today to talk to us about old technology and new technology. We learnt about how people used to call people, how people used to send a text (a letter), how people used to play games, watch videos, listen to music, take photographs and find out information. We couldn’t believe how much our phones do and how much you used to have to use to do all these jobs! We even got to try some of the old technology out!

Goodbye Elm Class!

The Easter Story

Science Week Investigation

As part of ‘Science Week’, the children in Elm Class completed an investigation to find out whether the colour or size affects the number of seeds in a pepper.
Elm Class had lots of fun recording their song ‘Little Donkey’ for the nativity!

Penguin Facts

Today we created an amazing display of emperor penguins!  Everyone wrote their favourite fact about emperor penguins on their penguin.

Plants and Flowers Investigation

Today we explored the school grounds and found lots of different plant and flower varieties.
Today, the children came to school in odd socks.  This is to encourage people to express themselves and celebrate their individuality and what makes us unique.

Planting Daffodils

Mrs Aldridge had a special treat for some children in Elm today!  She took them to plant some daffodils around school.  She hopes to get more planted in the following weeks!
The children had lots of fun today celebrating Children in Need by coming into school in their own clothes and pyjamas.

Exploring the Cottage Museum

Elm Class have really enjoyed exploring the cottage museum at school.  In part of the cottage, we saw what the buildings would have been like during the Great Fire of London.

Today Elm Class created speeches in groups to persuade their audience why they should be friends with Leaf.

Joining Techniques

Today, the children experimented with different techniques on how to join pieces of fabric together.  They used clips, sellotape, staples, and PVA glue.  The children also tried sewing two pieces of fabric together.

The Great Fire of London

Today, the children learnt about the Great Fire of London. They recreated the city using Lego and then reenacted the fire burning throughout the city.

Moving Story Books

Elm Class had lots of fun creating their own moving story books.  The children created a puppet that they were able to move across their image.  Each story started in the Amazon and finished in France.

Zoo 2 U Visit

Elm Class have had a fantastic end to the term with their visit from Zoo 2 U!  The children got to stroke a skunk, a snake and the world’s largest species of millipede.  Mr Yates also had the pleasure of being able to carry the animals around to all of the children!

Big Draw Day

For Big Draw Day, Elm Class have created some wonderful posters to remind people to protect all the vulnerable animals in the world.

Zeraffa Giraffa Role-play

The children reenacted the moment that Zeraffa the giraffe walked through the streets of Paris.  The children were interviewed throughout to collect quotes for what they will add to their newspaper report.

Matt Maher - What a Friend

This week Elm Class have really enjoyed listened to ‘What a Friend’. We have learnt actions to the song and look forward to one day being able to sing it all together.

Letters to the Great Pascha

Today we wrote scrolls as Atir to tell the Great Pascha about the journey that he and Zeraffa the giraffe had been on.

European Sports Day 2020

Giraffe Transport Vehicles

Elm Class have designed their own vehicles that would be able to transport a giraffe from the shore of France and the way to Paris!
